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 finance loves the smell of my different essential oils but always chuckles at my claims and promises about them. In fact, our friends just threw us a wedding shower last weekend, and we played the newlywed game.

The guys were asked the question: "If your wife or girlfriend was stranded on a desert island and could only have ONE item, what would that be?" I secretly wrote on my paper "Essential Oils", and when it came time for him to announce his answer, he loudly proclaimed, "HER ESSENTIAL OILS!!!"

Anyway... He suffers from fungus on his toenails and became very self-conscious when his thumb developed the same fungus some years ago. It has been getting progressively worse with time. I've been nagging him for a long time to use my oils (especially the Thieves oil blend), but he never takes the time to try it.

He finally "stole" one of my Thieves bottles and put it on his desk (works from home office). He's been applying it faithfully to his thumb for weeks and told me just today that I made a believer out of him.

We all know that nail fungus takes a long time to clear up. However his consistency has paid off, and he is so thrilled.

The thumbnail is almost completely cleared up, and he is so tickled. I just smiled.

Just had to share.
