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 cousin has a beautiful log cabin literally out in the back country. Every time I get bitten by a mosquito out there, not only does it itch like crazy, but it swells and looks absolutely terrible.

While there one night, at dusk, I put Lemongrass essential oil on my ankles, behind my knees, on my wrists, in the crease of my elbows and on the back of my neck. I also rubbed over the large areas of my skin a homemade bug repellent gel that I had made with aloe vera gel, the Purification and Thieves oil blends, Lemongrass, Peppermint and Melaleuca essential oils.

I sat there and watched mosquitoes fly all around me and not a single one landed on me! I have repeated this regimen several times, not only on myself, but on my children, father and a couple of aunts as well. And they all get the same results!
