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 has had terrible red marks all over his arms and hands caused by bruising when he had IV's put in during several hospital stays. His skin is also extremely thin so every bang and bump breaks his capillaries.

I looked this up in the Essential Oil Desk Reference and saw Cypress was suggested. We used this oil by applying it to the affected area "neat" (just a drop and rubbing it in.)

Within days the ugly red marks began to disappear. Within a week they were all but gone. I have shared this with several friends who have experienced the same results.

These oils are indeed a wonder!
