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.


At work Friday afternoon I ran my tongue over my bottom lip and felt the telltale bumps under the skin that told me I had a fever blister forming. I knew that they usually last close to two weeks for me and I was very unhappy.

I have been using essential oils for five years now and only had some Grapefruit oil at work. I put a drop on my lip and let it do its work.

Once I got home I got a Q-tip and applied a drop of Frankincense oil on the area several times during the evening.

I was amazed when I got up this morning (Saturday) and the symptoms were gone! I have continued to apply Frankincense several times during the day but that is probably not needed - overkill.

This is my first testimonial - one I am eager to share because high quality oils really work!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: cold-sores-/-fever-blisters — "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: blemishes — "Tea tree oil... has become increasingly popular as an antimicrobial for the treatment of conditions such as tinea pedis [athlete’s foot] and acne....[T]ea tree oil can reduce histamine-induced skin inflammation."Link
3.Associated topics: blemishes — "Topical 5% tea tree oil is an effective treatment for mild to moderate acne vulgaris.... Tea tree oil has broad-spectrum antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activity in vitro. These properties have formed the basis of its use in the treatment of a range of superficial dermatoses such as cuts, insect bites, boils, and dermatophytosis [ringworm]."Link
4.Associated topics: blemishes — "[W]e suggest that Geumgamja [Korean Citrus obovoides] and Cheonyahagyul [Citrus natsudaidai] essential oils are attractive acne-mitigating candidates for topical application... against acne-inducing bacteria."Link
5.Associated topics: lesions — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
