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.


I was hardly a believer in aromatherapy oils having therapeutic and healing properties until now. Just two months ago, I was desperate for a solution to my worsening case of eczema when a friend of mine introduced Eucalyptus and Rose oils to me. Now, most of my eczema's cleared up and my skin's condition, although still not perfect, isn't dry and itchy like it has been for so many years!

I want eczema sufferers out there to know there indeed is a better cure to eczema other than corticosteriods, which merely suppress the condition. This supression often causes a recurrent breakout to be far worse than the previous. Furthermore, excessive use of such creams thins the skin and increases the risk of infection.

One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
