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.

I had been struggling with a sebaceous cyst on my inner thigh for roughly a year. It was about 2.5 inches long, 2 inches wide and was raised roughly an inch from the surface. I thought surgery was the only option for me as this has been the end result for me many times. But then one of my coworkers mentioned Young Living essential oils. I was skeptical at first but decided to give it my best shot.

I applied 3 drops of Lemon oil and 3 drops of the Thieves oil blend topically to the cyst area twice daily for 2.5 weeks.

After the first week the cyst started changing shape and became firmer and smaller. The cyst finally opened and solid material was coming out of it in pieces.

I called my neighbor lady, who is a retired surgical nurse, to come over and take a look at what had came out of it. She confirmed that it was the lining of a sebaceous cyst. The oils dried out the cyst and was breaking down the sac lining.

I now have a smooth area where the cyst was and am on the mend for good!! I still apply the same oils twice daily but have reduced the oil drop count down to 2 each.
This has made my husband and I true believers in essential oils and I will continue using them for the rest of my life!!!
