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.

A few months ago, my then 6 year old daughter started getting strange bumps on her skin. They looked like little blisters, kind of like warts and some were together in clusters.

Not knowing what this was, I just kept an eye on it for a couple months. At times, I would pop them, much like a pimple. When I did this, they seemed to go away temporarily, but the overall problem didn't resolve and in fact began spreading to other areas.

I started researching on the Internet as to what this could be, and found something I thought fit her rash: Molluscum Contagiosum. This is something completely unfamiliar to me! When I found a bump on her beautiful little face, I decided it was time to see the dermatologist. He confirmed that it was indeed Molluscum Contagiosum.

The course treatment he prescribed was to initiate an immune response by pricking the bumps with a toothpick, then I was to apply two prescription creams once the skin was broken.

Not feeling good about the creams, I decided to only take part of his advice. I went ahead and used the toothpick, but instead of the prescription ointments, I used the Thieves oil blend. I also used Thieves on her lymphatic areas and did a lymphatic pump as described in the Essential Oils Desk Reference book.

I did this for only a couple of days at the most. I give full credit to the Thieves oil for helping to clear up my daughter's case of Molluscum Contagiosum!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: virus — "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: virus — "Taken together, we found an essential oil blend [Orange, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary] notably attenuates influenza virus PR8 infection in vitro via inhibition of viral protein synthesis at the post-transcription level. The lack of toxicity and potent specific inhibition ability make the essential oil a possible antiviral drug for influenza virus proliferation control and treatment."Link
3.Associated topics: molluscum-contagiosum — "Essential oil of Australian lemon myrtle (Backhousia citriodora) [was effective] in the treatment of molluscum contagiosum in children."Link
4.Associated topics: lymph — "Immunomodulatory activity of frankincense oil: Biologically, the oil exhibited a strong immunostimulant activity (90% lymphocyte transformation) when assessed by a lymphocyte proliferation assay."Link
5.Associated topics: virus — "Tea tree oil (TTO) (Melaleuca alternifolia) has been used recently as an effective topical application for the treatment of skin infections due to a variety of aetiological microbial agents, including mainly bacterial infections. We detail... the successful treatment with TTO of a paediatric patient with warts on her right middle finger. TTO was applied topically once daily to the lesions for 12 days, with a successful outcome, including complete re-epithelization of the infected areas. The case highlights the potential use of TTO in the treatment of common warts due to human papilloma virus."Link
6.Associated topics: virus — "Essential oils from anise, hyssop, thyme, ginger, camomile and sandalwood were screened for their inhibitory effect against herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) [genital herpes]. A clearly dose-dependent virucidal activity against HSV-2 could be demonstrated for all essential oils tested. Chamomile oil exhibited a high selectivity index and seems to be a promising candidate for topical therapeutic application as virucidal agents for treatment of herpes genitalis."Link
