Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

My two-and-a-half-year-old son broke his femur and was in a spica cast that covered his hips and both legs for five weeks. Due to lack of air circulation, sweating, and general toddler messiness, when his cast was removed, there was a bacterial skin rash covering one leg, his hips, and his bottom.

The first night I applied some over-the-counter Benadryl cream since he complained of itching, but it did not seem to affect the rash. The next day I thought to use my essential oils on him and combined a few drops of Thieves and a few drops of Purification, diluting it with raw coconut oil.

The next morning the rash and redness were almost completely gone! All that was left were a few colorless bumps, and he stopped scratching the area as well.
