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.

After seeking help from a dermatologist, I was told that I had eczema on my back (which did not feel right because I know what that kind of rash looks like). The dermatologist prescribed Benadryl.

Unfortunately, I do not like taking medications, and Benadryl does the reverse on me (a.k.a. paradoxical reaction) anyway. Instead of calming and stopping the itching and rash, it made things worse!

Consequently, I started seeking out essential oils that would help. I used Peppermint to help cool the skin, as it was so hot and painful that I was miserable. Then I used Lavender, again to heal the skin; this helped the rash and skin irritations go away for quite a while.

Then in December it all came back even worse, as the rash and inflammation intensified all over my back, not just a small spot. I went on Facebook to search out essential oilers and received some amazing tips.

Then came a friend who suggested Sage, and another friend suggested Lemongrass. I muscle tested to see if either of these essential oils would work, and then I blended and applied them.

The rash, inflammation, and itching are now fading quickly. I have been using this mixture of essential oils for about a week and a half now, and the results are amazing.

As of today, my skin is now healed completely -- no more rash, itching, burning, or inflammation on my back. These essential oils are amazing, and the oilers out there are even more helpful!
