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.

I have four clients who have psoriasis over their entire bodies, and their hands break out in sore, red blisters. Then after the blisters appear, their skin turns red and cracks. Each of these clients has to wear large bandages on their hands to cover them up.

When I received my first bottle of Myrrh essential oil, I asked one of these people if we could experiment with the Myrrh, as we had nothing to lose. I applied Myrrh directly to the open sores on her hands, and then I proceeded to give a hand massage with the Young Living Lavender Hand & Body Lotion.

The following morning I received a text of gratitude and pictures of her amazing, not inflamed hands. Her hands were still red, but at least there were no open blisters or bleeding. When I called her to ask specifics, she told me that the blisters on her feet were no longer open and sore either.

Over the next two weeks I proceeded to try this protocol on the three other clients as I saw them. Each one of them had amazing relief and similar results. The first client had relief for about 3 months and never put another drop of Myrrh on. She continued with the Lavender Hand & Body Lotion, however. The other three clients have continued with the Myrrh application along with the lotion and have not been experiencing flareups.

Please note that Myrrh essential oil and Lavender Hand & Body Lotion can be used for helping to soothe the discomfort of dry, cracked and bleeding hands.

Applying the Myrrh essential oil and then massaging it into the skin with coconut oil has been my application of choice. However, I find that most people prefer hand lotion at home, so the Lavender Hand & Body Lotion (due to its pure formulation) allows for no preservatives to penetrate with the essential oil. But when they are with me at my office, they are able to sit still for a longer period of time so the coconut oil has time to absorb.
