Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

My now husband and I were dating just a few months when he went on a week-long ski trip out west. He's an excellent skier, and goes on trips several times a year. One of his greatest enjoyments, and a thing he thinks essential to enjoying the way he and his friends like to ski, double black diamond advanced courses, is to get a daily hot tub session in for the therapeutic effects. Generally this is a safe activity especially at the high-end resorts the club chooses. But this time someone had made a mistake with the chemicals and everyone who used the tub got burned, badly.

When my then boyfriend came over straight from the airport I was so excited to see him, but immediately I had a problem - he stank of chlorine bleach! Feeling sheepish, I asked him if he wouldn't mind taking a quick shower but he said he had taken 3 showers since the hot tub incident and began to tell the details.

He and his friends had stepped into the tub and were just beginning to relax when the itching began followed quickly by comments that the tub temperature was too high. One of his friends got out to check and discovered the tub was set on the perfect temp, but looking down noticed his skin was red and blotchy.

All together they were in the tub for about 20 minutes total, a very short time compared to their usual practice, but that was enough so they all went to their respective rooms to shower and change. That's when my now-husband was horrified to discover that his once electric-blue trunks had been bleached all the way to a light peach! These were not cheap trunks, but a well-known name-brand designed to withstand proper chemical balance in a pool or hot tub.

Since we had just begun dating, I was sort of easing him into "my world" of oils and energy work...but knowing that his red, itchy skin was a sign of chemical toxicity and burns I insisted that we get to work right away.

We used a combination of oils to help stop the burning, curtail and end the itching and then help his skin begin the healing process. We also used a few products to help him internally since the chemicals had seeped into his system which was overloaded with toxicity and inflammation. The products we used were:

*Ninxgia Red Juice
*Lavender - both topically and internally
*Rose Ointment

The topical oils were added to OrthoEase and applied liberally.

I also sneaked a few oils in to help with the emotional distress including Forgiveness, Peace & Calming and Joy.

We also added drinking more water than usual and drinking aloe internally.

Within an hour the itching stopped, and over the next few days his skin returned to normal. He never exhibited any symptoms of toxicity, though a few of his friends complained of having had headaches and feeling ill for a week or so after.

From this experience on, we've never had deep discussions about using the oils he just accepts that they are truly powerful and very effective. Whenever he has an issue he simply asks me what to use and/or gets out the desk reference himself.

One of my favorite moments was a few years later when we were just racing out the door to get on a plane to go on yet another ski trip and he stopped me stating as a matter of fact, "Oh wait...I need to grab a few oils..."

I'm thrilled to have helped him heal so easily, to have taught him to reach for the oils himself and to enjoy the position of his gratitude for helping us easily create a life of wellbeing.
