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.


In the past, I have dealt with cystic acne and have had several cysts removed from my face because they just would not go away.

Recently my face broke out worse than it ever has in my entire life! I am guessing that it was hormone related this time, as I am almost 40 now.

I tried Lavender oil alone and the Purification oil blend alone, and neither had great results. Then I read somewhere about layering essential oils, so I thought I would try that because I did not want to have to resort to using the irritating creams of the past again.

Each morning I applied 1-2 drops Lemon essential oil to the area of concern, let it dry, and then applied Frankincense essential oil. After that absorbed into the skin, I applied a facial moisturizer with a few drops of Lavender and Purification essential oils mixed into the bottle.

And each evening I applied Lavender essential oil, let it dry, and then applied Frankincense essential oil. I also made sure that my diet was good, that I was drinking enough water, etc.

After three days, my face was almost completely clear again. I am amazed!

I just finished reading some other testimonials about Frankincense essential oil helping to reduce large pores, so I am hoping that I will get that effect as well.

These essential oils are amazing, and I love that I can address my issues without having to resort to more invasive remedies.

7.Associated topics: hormones — "Most studies, as well as clinically applied experience, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine), thereby further regulating mood."Link
8.Associated topics: hormones — "Results of bone density, bone mineral content, bone tensile strength and histological analysis also showed similar trend of results, which supported initial observations of this study. It is proposed that hydroalcoholic extract of dried clove buds has bone-preserving efficacy against hypogonadal [hormonally deficient] osteoporosis."Link
