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 husband knows I use oils for many things, (mostly still trying them out and experimenting with what works) but he is still skeptical.

The other day he came into the house and said that he thought something had bitten him on the neck. He had a red bump and it was very irritated. He said it really itched, but when scratched, it burned. He asked if I had anything for it. He was concerned that it may have been a mosquito and he was afraid of the West Nile Virus.

I use Lavender oil for so many things, but something lead me to the Purification oil blend. I put a drop on my finger and applied it neat to the red bump on his neck. Within a few minutes the itching had stopped and the redness had subsided quite a bit.

I asked him later that night how his neck was and he said that it was fine within a few minutes after I put the oil on it. Since he is highly allergic to a lot of medications and lotions, he was grateful that the Purification oil not only worked so quickly, but that he did not have a reaction to it.

I think he could be a believer, if I keep getting such great information from the testimonials and I try them on him.

Thank you Young Living oils. You came to the rescue yet again!
