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.

My 21 year old son came home with a skin rash and he was guessing he might have gotten exposed to poison ivy/oak since he was clearing brush outside. After trying over-the-counter anti-itch lotions like Calamine and Benedryl with symptoms getting worse, he finally gave in to my essential oils on the 3rd day.

I applied Joy diluted with V-6 oil all over his arms and torso the next morning. He stated that he was not itchy all day. He re-applied at night and I haven't heard any complaints from him after 24 hours, except his co-workers said he smelled like a flower :-)
