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.
At an Angels game in 2009 I bumped my toe into a step. For 5 years I tried numerous over-the-counter meds. Not only did they not work, but the fungus got worse.
In September 2014 I began applying Thieves essential oil blend mostly because that is what came in my kit. I applied a drop neat (undiluted) right at the top of the nail. It would drip down under my nail, and I would massage it in. I did this once a day for about 2 months.
The fungus turned black, but that's okay because I read somewhere that that would happen. The nail began to grow out, and the new growth was CLEAN and FREE FROM FUNGUS!
I also began to apply Oregano essential oil (diluted with coconut oil) and Melaleuca essential oil neat, applied the same way as the Thieves blend. I rotate the essential oils and apply once a day. Sometimes I forget and take a couple of days off.
I am absolutely amazed because the nail is almost completely free from fungus! There is a small part at the top of the nail that hasn't grown out yet, but I KNOW that it will be all clear in about a month!
My beautiful toesies are back, and I can go without nail polish!
