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 was first introduced to Young Living essential oils to help support a terrible diaper rash on my 3-month-old baby. I had also successfully used Thieves and RC in the past for coughs and colds in both of my boys. I had rarely used the Purification essential oil blend.

Then one Saturday morning my preschooler woke up with pinkeye in both eyes. My husband and I began applying Purification and Lavender essential oils in big circles around his eyes (above the brow bone and down on the cheeks -- not close to the eyes) roughly every hour. We also diffused RC during naptime and at night.

By Tuesday the leakiness of his eyes was completely gone. The corneas were still just slightly red. And by Wednesday morning the eyelids were no longer crusty.
