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.

I recently came across something that I'd like to share with you that I found really helped me in treating my fungal infection.

Soak the affected nails for 15 minutes daily in a basin containing 2 quarts of warm water, 1 cup of apple cider vinegar, and 10 drops of Lavender oil. Dry the area thoroughly with a hair dryer set to warm.

Follow up with a drop of Oregano oil applied under the nail. Oregano has a tendency to have a stronger smell and also discolors the nail, so I alternated between the Oregano oil and Tea Tree Oil.

I did this faithfully for 3-4 weeks and I can see that it is definitely clearing up and the old nails are gradually being replaced by healthy ones!!!

It's so wonderful to find something natural that isn't hard on your liver!!
