Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

A few weeks ago, I was outside talking with someone before work and was stung on the arm by some kind of bee. It may have been a yellow-jacket. I didn't get a chance to see it more than a brief moment as it flew away. Because I was headed into work, I had my backpack with me, so that meant I also had my essential oils handy. I thought immediately of Lavender, but Purification blend also came to mind. I had just recently been using Purification as a bug repellent during hiking.

Anyway, I immediately applied Lavender first, then when it didn't fully Relieve It, I also applied Purification. The Lavender helped a bit, but the Purification blend took the sting sensation right out of it immediately! The swelling stopped, the burning sensation subsided. I reapplied Purification a few minutes later when the burning/stinging started coming back, and again, it went away. I repeated application occasionally - maybe three or four times - over the next hour or two, then did not need to anymore! There remained for the day a small red spot where I'd been stung, but it did not swell up, itch, burn, or ache like it normally would. I think the Lavender was a nice start, and likely helped calm me from the surprise, decrease the anxiety (therefore lower my anticipation of pain), but if I had only one oil to put on it or recommend for such an injury, Purification blend would be the one! It was an amazing experience!
