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 developed what I suspect was athlete's foot (tinea pedis) between the two small toes of my left foot. I tried several of the recommended essential oils neat (undiluted), and they seemed to help. But the sores still did not heal up.

Then I mixed up the following salve:

10 drops of Lavender essential oil
1 1/2 teaspoons of Animal Scents Ointment

I applied this salve between the affected toes and noticed relief from the itching in the first day. I then applied the mixture again at night and wore a sock on that foot.

The next day showed a big improvement. After four days of this regimen at night, it was mostly better. And after one week, the sores were completely gone.
