A good friend of mine was having immune system problems and as a result was getting a lot of boils. Most of them small, but one on his back at the top of his left hip was causing him excruciating pain. Unable to sleep on his back, wear a pair of jeans, or anything with a belt he called to see if there was anything we could do. I offered to try some oils because I had told him before that they can support the immune system and assist the skin in returning to good health.

I applied oils in concentric rings around the boil. It was the largest boil i had ever seen. Raised off the skin by about 3/4 of an inch and the head was nearly and inch across. The total surface area of the boil was roughly 7inches in diameter.

First, I applied Oregano and Thyme to the head of the boil. Warning him that it was going to get uncomfortable. I diluted them just a little with some V-6 oil. Then I applied Frankincense in a ring around the head of the boil. I used Purification in the next ring as i moved further away from the head of the boil. Lastly I used some Sandalwood as the last ring about 3 inches wide around the site and even across some unaffected skin in the area.

The next day the head had popped and released a great deal of puss, and his skin began returning to normal. The following day (2days after treatment) the boil was completely level with the rest of the skin, he was able to sleep on his back, wear anything he wanted, and touch the area without any pain. The tissue was healthy and healing and took about another week with no further treatment to close up completely, leaving only a minor trace of the wound. We were all Amazed!! Again, I was kicking myself for not taking a before and after picture, the results were truly dramatic.
