Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

A friend had a 10 x 8 cm wound on the top part of his foot. He had surgery on his ankle for a fall at work, a vein stripping and had been trying to heal this wound for some 6 months. He is a diabetic and also had neuropathy pain from the foot.

The wound had an inch area clear around it that was very red. The wound had been oozing purulent material. I cleansed the wound with 2 applications of Thieves foaming hand soap. I then applied 2 drops of Thieves directly into the wound. While that worked, I painted the red area all around the wound with Purification. I also applied Purification to the bottom of his foot.

I then followed with 2 drops each of Lavender, Frankincense and PanAway into the wound, waiting about 5 minutes between each application of oil. He told me he could not dorsiflex his great toe without causing severe nerve pain to shoot up his leg, so I applied 2 more drops of PanAway directly to his great toe. I redressed his wound. Within 15 minutes, he could dorsiflex his toe without pain and could stand on his foot. When his wife removed the dressing the next day, it was almost 50% closed.
