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 got my first ever herpes rash on my face last summer. (I am still bristling from having picked up the virus at a medical doctor's office.) Not knowing what it was, I slathered all kinds of stuff on it, but nothing seemed to help. Using essential oils topically provided some relief but did not clear it up completely.

My naturopathic doctor (ND) had provided several supplements, creams, etc. Some of them helped... a bit. She, too, was baffled as to why I was not getting better. She said that she only had one other patient who had a herpes rash that was this stubborn.

After 6 months of battling this rash, I finally asked my ND for an antiviral prescription. No sooner had I taken it than I had a very strong allergic reaction.

At the time, I was hesitant to take essential oils internally. By this point, though, I was also desperate! So I started taking 3-5 drops of Thieves oil in a capsule about 2-3 times a day. Within 3 days, the rash was *completely* gone!

This rash thing still kicks up now and then. But now, when I start feeling that tingle, I immediately start using Thieves. And I do not hesitate to use therapeutic-grade essential oils internally any longer!
