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.

I had only had my Everyday Oils kit for a week or so and was very new to essential oils. I was outside when a red wasp dive-bombed and stung me on the eyelid. After screaming and picking up my glasses that had flown off, my daughter brought me Lavender essential oil to try.

I put it on a cotton ball and held it on my eyelid. It stopped hurting pretty much immediately... and never hurt again. And it never swelled up! I only held the cotton ball there for probably a half hour.

To put that in context, the last time I had been stung by a wasp, my whole forearm swelled up and hurt immensely. But after applying Lavender for this most recent incident, there was no swelling or pain. This made a believer out of me!
