Warning: 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 grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

Last year I went to my GP for a rash I had on my backside. It appeared during the hot, sweaty summer months and I just assumed it was a prickly heat type rash. NOTHING I used would keep the itching down and I would scratch myself raw during the night due to its intensity. Finally broke down and went to Dr. who prescribed an anti-fungal cream. Lo and behold, pure relief.....even felt cooling, and best of all, it stopped itching. Downside of the problem was as SOON as the tube of ointment was gone, the rash reappeared with a vengenance.

I tried several of Young Living's anti-fungal oils, some causing the skin to peel off but never got total relief and it would start nagging me again. FINALLY one evening in desperation, I went through Dr. Stewarts "The Chemistry of Essential oils made simple" and he listed on page 314 that Wintergreen was antifungal. (This is NOT listed as an anti-fungal oil in the Essential Oil Desk Reference) I immediately applied it 50/50 with coconut oil and the rash was completely gone by morning. I even got that cooling effect that I'd gotten with the Dr. prescribed ointment. The best part is it's been over a month now and it hasn't even tried to come back!

I wanted to give this testimony for others who have tried and failed to find relief from a certain protocol. KEEP trying a different oil if you don't at first get results with what your desk reference recommends. Everyone's body chemistry is different and oils may react differently on you than it will on others.

Hope this helps someone else out there. I LOVE this's helped me out sooo many times already.
