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 mother, age 73, was woken up during the middle of the night as she had broken out in shingles around 3:30 am. They went around her midriff on the right side of her body.

She contacted her family doctor that morning, who confirmed they were shingles, and prescribed her Valtrex. She took 2 pills that morning (per the prescription's directions), and another 2 pills eight hours later.

I didn't learn of her situation until 7 pm that night. I immediately went to her house, asked her to not take the pills anymore, and dabbed the outbreak with a mixture of: 1 tablespoon Calamine Lotion to which I had added 20 drops of Lavender oil. Orally, I made her capsules containing 3-5 drops of Oil of Oregano which I asked her to take every day for a 2 week period.

I also have access to a Rife machine, and ran the frequencies for Shingles every day for the first 5 days.

When I visited Calamine lotion was applied containing Lavender Oil. Her outbreak never wept, but night after night kept drying up and subsiding. On the 1st day, she wasn't able to sleep because of the burning. After running the Rife frequencies, she claims the burning sensation had subsided by 40% (only took 30 minutes).

My mother has a great tolerance to pain, in my opinion. She has had 3 children, and claims she'd rather give birth to quintuplets than have itchy shingles. She suffered with post herpetic neuralgia (what follows the shingles outbreak) for a few months. Since I asked her in June, she no longer has post herpetic neuralgia.

She has spoken with many others who have suffered with Shingles and took the pills their doctor recommended. They didn't fare as well as her. One individual she heard about had broken out on his arm and now has scars. My mother has no scarring, and attributes the single most beneficial factor to be the oils during her bout with Shingles.

Thank you to those who manufacture therapeutic-grade essential oils!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: shingles — "The patient was successfully treated with topical peppermint oil [for postherpetic neuralgia, a complication of shingles].... The authors believe this is the first evidence of peppermint oil (or menthol) having a strong analgesic effect on neuropathic pain."Link
2.Associated topics: itching-(Pruritus) — "[T]ea tree oil seems to be a more effective anti-eczematic agent than zinc oxide and clobetasone butyrate...."Link
3.Associated topics: scar-tissue — "[One] method employed for wound healing is the application of lavender oil. Due to its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties, it is thought to prevent wound infections and to play a role in reducing pain by lowering inflammation.... Lavender oil is known to have antibacterial, antifungal, sedative, and/or antidepressant effects.... In addition to its antimicrobial effects, the anti-inflammatory analgesic properties of lavender oil have also been emphasized... The use of L. Angustifolia [lavender] is particularly recommended in chronically infected wounds due to its immune-stimulating and antimicrobial effects. There are also reports that lavender oil reduces scar tissue."Link
4.Associated topics: scar-tissue — "[A] pulverized mixture of four herbs including Agrimonia Eupatoria (A), Nelumbo Nucifera Gaertn (N), Boswellia Carteri (B) [Frankincense], and Pollen Typhae Angustifoliae (P)... was first described in Chinese canonical medicine about 2000 years ago for treatment of various trauma disorders, such as hemostasis [bleeding], anti-inflammatory, analgesia [pain], and wound healing, etc.... [W]e showed that local ANBP treatment not only significantly enhanced wound healing by relieving inflammation, increasing formation of granulation tissue, and accelerating re-epithelialization, but [it] also reduced scar formation by decreasing collagen production [and] protuberant height and volume of scars and [by] increasing collagen maturity.... [Results show that ANBP] promot[es] wound healing and alleviat[es] scar formation, which may be an effective therapy for human wounds at the earliest stage."Link
