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.

Having had a habit of resting my elbows on the table, I developed a bag of water on each elbow. The left one hung down about half an inch, the right one about one and a half inches. It didn't look nice so I usually wore long sleeves. One day my sister saw my elbows and said it looked gross and why don't I have the doctor drain them.

I then started using Frankincense on each elbow every morning and Lavender every evening. The bag on the left disappeared within two weeks. The one on the right went down about half way and stayed like that. I quit putting on the oils after about three months. Six months later I asked the doctor to lance them but to wait until after I get back from Ontario.

A few days later, while visiting relatives in Ontario, I again rested my elbows on the table and felt a sudden sharp pain. Both had a big water bag within a few hours. So I again used Frankincense and Lavender. By next morning both water bags were gone. My doctor was very impressed and has sometimes suggested I use the oils in other situations.
