Note: 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. 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.
My lab developed a fluid filled cyst the size of a ping pong ball on the back of her leg. I made a rollerball containing 10 drops each of Frankincense, Myrrh, and Lemon. I them applied to my fingers and then gently rubbed it onto the lump, first twice a day.
The next day the fluid which had a bit of blood to it started draining out. Her skin all around the lump was very dark pink, so there was quite a bit of inflammation. I continued to apply this blend sometimes four times a day. As lump flattened I was able to roll on with using a rollerball directly. When it got down to the size of a pea, I squeezed it releasing the remaining pus, put neosporin on it, and now it is completely gone.
I will continue to rollerball it with my homemade blend for a bit just to be sure. This was an amazing result and I had no vet bill! She has had a lump like this in past, and vet removed some of the tissue and fluid to test for cancer. There was no cancer, but after tests, antibiotics, etc., I was out of pocket $700.

Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."||Link|
