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 weeks ago I noticed a fairly large bump on my upper back between my shoulder blades. A friend said it looked like I had picked a pimple and it had a scabby look to it. But since it was the size of a quarter and didn't go away after about a week I called the doctor and went in. He said it looked like skin cancer and scheduled me to have it removed.

Prior to surgery, while we were vacationing, it started itching and the only oil I had with me was Frankincense so I started putting that on it. By the time I went in yesterday for the surgery it had shrunk over 2/3 so all he did was a small biopsy to see what type of skin issue it might be. Needless to say, I was thrilled to have it shrink down so fast and the doctor's nurse ordered a bottle of Frankincense from me on the spot and asked for a brochure so she could look at the rest of the oils.

The following week the results of the biopsy ultimately came in as a rare form of keratosis - one that is extremely hard to detect and no sign of skin cancer. The wound from the biopsy cleared up in just a few days as I was applying Frankincense and Lavender oils around the area. Definitely beats the cortisone creams I have tried in the past and will never use again.

Thank you, thank you, Young Living.
