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.

Both of my children (currently ages 2 and 4) had contracted molluscum contagiosum (a.k.a. water warts), which spread like crazy. Doctors simply told us to leave it alone.

We tried many remedies anyway, but nothing over the counter worked for us. We also tried many essential oils that failed... until we tried Oregano oil.

I mixed 3 drops of Oregano essential oil with 1 teaspoon of a carrier oil. (Oregano is a hot oil and can cause skin irritation if not diluted.) I applied this mixture with a Q-tip morning, noon, and night.

Within days the spots started looking red and irritated. We thought that this was a bad reaction and rushed to our dermatologist, who told us that this was actually a good sign. It means that the body has realized that the molluscum is a virus and has started to fight it off.

I kid you not... the molluscum contagiosum was completely gone within a month. And my older child had had it since she was 18 months old! Simply amazing!

Since molluscum contagiosum is such a common pox virus for preschoolers, I recommended this protocol to a friend who also had had no previous success in getting rid of the virus. Oregano essential oil worked for her family as well!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: virus — "The presence of beta-caryophyllene in many essential oils might contribute strongly to their antiviral ability. These results indicate that phenylpropanoids and sesquiterpenes present in essential oils contribute to their antiviral activity against HSV [herpes simplex virus]."Link
2.Associated topics: virus — "Taken together, we found an essential oil blend [Orange, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary] notably attenuates influenza virus PR8 infection in vitro via inhibition of viral protein synthesis at the post-transcription level. The lack of toxicity and potent specific inhibition ability make the essential oil a possible antiviral drug for influenza virus proliferation control and treatment."Link
3.Associated topics: molluscum-contagiosum — "Essential oil of Australian lemon myrtle (Backhousia citriodora) [was effective] in the treatment of molluscum contagiosum in children."Link
4.Associated topics: virus — "Tea tree oil (TTO) (Melaleuca alternifolia) has been used recently as an effective topical application for the treatment of skin infections due to a variety of aetiological microbial agents, including mainly bacterial infections. We detail... the successful treatment with TTO of a paediatric patient with warts on her right middle finger. TTO was applied topically once daily to the lesions for 12 days, with a successful outcome, including complete re-epithelization of the infected areas. The case highlights the potential use of TTO in the treatment of common warts due to human papilloma virus."Link
5.Associated topics: virus — "Essential oils from anise, hyssop, thyme, ginger, camomile and sandalwood were screened for their inhibitory effect against herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) [genital herpes]. A clearly dose-dependent virucidal activity against HSV-2 could be demonstrated for all essential oils tested. Chamomile oil exhibited a high selectivity index and seems to be a promising candidate for topical therapeutic application as virucidal agents for treatment of herpes genitalis."Link
