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.

My husband was diagnosed with Meniere's vertigo nearly 6 years ago. He has had ringing and a static echo-like sound in his left ear since.

Recently he started rubbing a few drops of Geranium and Rose behind his ear lobe and around the bone, and a few drops of Geranium, Peppermint and Lavender neat on the tips of his toes.

The first time he tried the oils and within 15 minutes, he noticed the static-echo sound was nearly gone. It does return, but doing this routine 2 times/day the sound has consistently been lower.

A week later I purchased Helichrysum, following the steps in my essential oils reference book with one drop on a cotton ball in the ear at night. The following day my husband realized for a time (15-20 minutes that he was aware of), the mid-ear ringing was completely gone!

As he continues to practice these routines with the oils daily, the ringing has been consistently lower.

As suggested in one of the testimonials, he is also using a drop or two of Helichrysum oil behind the ear lobe and around the bone. He applies that oil first on the tips of the toes and then layers on the Geranium and Peppermint oils.

Needless to say...we are quite pleased to have discovered the benefits of the oils!
