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.

Last year I noticed that my eyes had begun hurting all the time, and I was having to wear sunglasses, even indoors. The pain in my eyes was intense.

I had been in two car accidents and I could no longer drive at night at all. My vision had deteriorated, and I had to use thick eye drops 6 times a day. I was miserable!

I was diagnosed with keratoconus and was devastated by the news. I would need surgery, maybe even corneal replacement.

Then I heard that Frankincense essential oil could help with circulation, so I decided to try it. I applied a drop or two of it neat (undiluted) every morning and every night around my eyes.

Six months later I went back to the ophthalmologist and found that not only had the disease stabilized, but I no longer needed surgery. My eyesight had actually improved! I could even pass my driver's test.

Now my eyes don't hurt anymore, and I rarely need eye drops!
