Essential Oils

My most recent "wow" experience with the oils came just as we were preparing to move to Southern California. My two year old was stung by a bee on his foot. I'm pretty sure he stepped on it. This was the second time in two weeks he had been stung. I immediately scraped off the stinger and began applying the essential oils. I applied 1 drop of basil oil, 1 drop of lavender oil, and 1 drop of cleansing blend to the sting. I continued to apply the oils every 15 minutes for the next 2 hours. I would have continued to apply them beyond the 2 hours, but it was bedtime. 

                                              This is his foot the day of the sting.

                                                           Red and swollen
                                                             One swollen foot

In the morning, the swelling had gone down quite a bit and walking didn't seem to bother him. I applied the oils every hour for the day and by evening his foot looked normal again. 

                                               24 hours after the sting. Swelling is reduced.

                                   24 hours after the sting. Redness and swelling reduced.

I am so thankful for essential oils. To learn how essential oils can help your family please contact me at OneDropForWellness@gmail.com
