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.

Well, for starters, my husband is very sensitive to poison ivy/oak/sumac. He always suffers from it in the warm summer months when it really starts to bloom and grow rapidly like wildfire here in midwest Missouri.

My husband had tried everything on the rash that doctors had recommended. These things would help, but the rash would still last up to about 10 days or so.

Well, I recently really got into using essential oils and was referred to Young Living by my wonderful mother-in-law. I read that the oils could help with poison ivy, so I said, "What the heck, it can't hurt to try!" So we did.

I made my husband a mixture of Lavender, Frankincense, and Peppermint diluted in some coconut oil. We applied this mixture 2 times a day until the rash cleared up. To our surprise, the essential oils helped clear up the rash in just 3 days!

Since then, every time my husband gets a rash that even resembles poison ivy, oak, or sumac, he asks me to make him a mixture to put on it. I love these essential oils!
