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.

I don't get these very often but when I do they are extremely painful, they blister, my glands swell, I'm lethargic and they last for 10 - 14 days! I hate them.

Well, I woke up with one recently - a big one - but not yet blistered. I have medicine from the doctor that I could have used, but thought instead I would try the natural approach, "Thieves"... I applied the Thieves full strength to the cold sore about 7x that first day and the next day it was GONE. The only thing that happened was the Thieves dried out my lip because I used it full strength, so I had a chapped lip for a day but now all is GOOD. Oh yeah, I also took a Young Living product called "Inner Defense" which is basically "Thieves" in a capsule...
