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 two-year-old granddaughter had some ear pain at the park, and I kept watching it to see if she was okay. We got back to my house, and I gave her a bath. She started crying, saying that her ear hurt. I finished her bath and was getting her dressed when her face turned red. She kept rubbing at her ear, screaming and crying.

I knew that she probably had started to get an ear infection because we had been in the pool for 4 days straight. I rubbed 4 drops of Lavender around her ear, and within minutes she stopped crying and acted like she was fine.

Since I was babysitting and it was early evening, I did take her to the urgent care facility. My granddaughter seemed so good when we got there. The doctor said, "Wow, she seems fine; why are you here?"

I said, "She was crying earlier and pulling at her ear, so I wanted to have it checked just in case." The doctor said, "Yes, she has a very bad ear infection."

The doctor was so surprised that my granddaughter was not crying. I do believe the Lavender had helped with the pain.
