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.

I have done some landscaping with cutting back and picking up scraps of ornamental grass,the stems can be long and sharp. I am used to all the scratches all over my arms, hands and legs. But when I was picking up my last pile, one whipped up and hit me square in the eye. I blinked and it was painful. I finished my work and went in to check the red eye.

I remembered to pat the oils around the eye, but not in the eye. The skin takes it up, circulates it into the lymphatics affecting nearby tissues like the eye and cornea. Just where it needed to go. I used Lavender, Tea Tree and Sacred Frankincense, but I actually was trying to find the regular Frankincense but I came across that one instead.

I highly recommend making a emergency kit especially in times like these. When you are scared, not thinking, in pain, can't move, its nice to have a cache of emergency oils. I couldn't really see, was tired and not thinking clearly.

Now 40 minutes later, my red eye is gone and the pain down to nothing.

Thank you Young Living Essential Oils, for you have saved our family from suffering yet again!
