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 had poison ivy on one wrist and on one ankle. He visited the doctor and was given steroids and a prescription cream.

Since he had two areas affected, I had him perform a test. I had him immediately apply Frankincense essential oil topically twice a day on his wrist area, but he only used the prescription cream on his ankle area.

By the next morning, his wrist area was drying up, and the ankle area was getting redder (but not spreading). So we stopped applying the prescription cream to the ankle and had him use Frankincense essential oil topically twice a day on both areas.

The rash on the wrist area was gone in a couple of days. Because of the delayed Frankincense essential oil treatment to the ankle, it took a little over a week for it to go away there.
