Feeling grateful today...

Ethan (my 10-year-old) seems to attract wasps like nobody's business! As the years have flown by, I've noticed that his reactions have been getting more severe, with an expanded reaction area around the sting site lasting for days instead of hours, very red and hot to the touch, etc.

Yesterday, at an outdoor birthday party, a wasp got INSIDE his shirt and stung him 4 times before I could get to him and remove his top. Unfortunately I left his emergency EpiPen at home, which was scary to say the least.

So into Dr. Mommy mode I went. This is what I did:

5 drops Young Living Lavender internally (natural antihistamine) every 15 minutes.

Rotated Purification (anti-venom), Thieves (Clove numbs the area), Peppermint (to cool the area, topical analgesic) and Lavender on location every couple of minutes for an hour.

An MD heard his screaming, came to assist us, and was amazed as she watched the oils work. Her daughter is into natural solutions, and the doctor even called her over to see what I was doing. What a scene it was... tending to my son and explaining what I was doing for these two women at the same time!

I have given both children the trio of oils at Christmas time: RC, Thieves, and Purification. I have now put those oils along with Lavender (and instructions) in a little travel case for their adventures with their father and for their school backpacks.

I think I'm going to start putting Purification on my son's neck, wrists, and ankles daily from now on as an insect repellant. The RC can assist with breathing difficulties if 911 needs to be called.

Bless Ethan's heart; he still has some redness today, but it is much better than past wasp sting experiences. I believe we avoided a potential life-threatening situation. Thank you Young Living!!
