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 have suffered many years with Tinea versicolor. It caused horrible itching and the discoloration of my skin.

In vain I tried prescriptions, and they helped temporarily, only to return the next year. I also tried smelly ointments, and harmful pills that damage the liver. I was done with the money I would give to doctors for exams, and then hand out more money to the pharmacist.

So I hit the internet and books to find out more on this infection. I learned it was fungal so that was my first clue how to attack it. I researched hours and came up with various essential oil blends but none worked. Until this concoction I came up with! Here is my own recipe:

I used a medium size spray bottle. I honestly don't know the size, but I'm pretty sure it would hold a cup of water, so let's say 8 ounces. It was a blue glass bottle, brown would be fine too, maybe not clear to keep the oils from light exposure. Fill the bottle with a carrier oil (I've used various kinds, like Olive, just use your favorite)

Add 10 drops each of:
Eucalyptus Globulus

Add 5 drops each of:
Tea Tree

Add 3 drops each of:

I also added Vitamin E oil, probably about 1/8 tsp.

Finally, gently mix the contents of the bottle. Then pray on the affected area 2-3 times per day, and rub into skin for about 14 days. After 1 week you should start noticing a lightening in the color of the spots. (Mine disappeared in a week.)

After the spots disappear, then you could just apply it once a week or so just to keep it controlled. This fungus apparently is never cured from what I've been reading, and also since I've been dealing with it for 40 years! Contact me and let me know your results. I hope this helps you like it has me!

Good luck and many blessings!

The zone of inhibition indicated significant clearance for all the bacteria and fungi indicating greater biocidal activity when compared to the controls.... Clove oil is a promising agent for killing dust mites with a potential use in dust-mite laden mattresses."Link
