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.

I felt pain on my finger when cleaning out some baskets. After identifying the cause as a black widow spider bite and dispatching the little culprit, I immediately applied Lavender essential oil every 15 minutes for the first hour.

The pain and throbbing subsided, but my finger was still inflamed and swelling. I then applied Purification essential oil blend every 30 minutes over the next several hours, increasing this to twice a day the following week.

The bite turned into a hard, red knot. It took almost 3 weeks to completely go away but never developed beyond that.

I never had any other symptoms other than the initial symptoms and slight pain if I pushed on the bite. I had no headache, blood poisoning, nerve problems, or additional swelling.

The rest of my finger and hand remained completely normal. The only thing to show I had been bitten after the first day was the small bump that gradually went away.
