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've recently had an outbreak of acne (rosacea) on my face, so that my face was spotted with pimples. I put a drop of Galbanum on my fingertip, and dabbed it to the various pimples before I went to bed. The next morning they had all dried out, and were on the mend.

Then when we were in Perth a couple of weeks ago, a friend of ours banged her foot very badly on an uneven floor surface. She was in obvious extreme pain. We immediately put PanAway on the area, which she said removed the throbbing within 10 seconds. However, there was still pain present. We then added a drop of Galbanum, and voila! In less than 10 seconds she declared that her foot was feeling great.

I love how quickly these oils work - it never ceases to amaze me.
