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.


Our family has been struggling with shingles and all of the symptoms. This includes the rash, itching, paint, etc.

Recently there was another painful outbreak. Because we were tired of using the medicines alone, we decided to use Wintergreen oils and it worked. We have determined that essential oils are a miracle to us!

We simply put 3-4 drops over the affected area, let the oil work for about 5 minutes, and then the pain was diminished so much that sleep was again possible.

What a wonderful alternative to medications with harmful side effects!
