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.


Last year in February I got very sick in three days. I noticed small blisters on the right side of my chest and also the corresponding side on my back. I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with shingles but there was nothing that could be done for the pain.

I had just sign up with Young Living in January but only had the Thieves oil blend. My mom joined before me, she used the essential oils reference book and found Ravensara was for shingles. She brought me a bottle of Ravensara oil.

The oil was diluted 2-3 drops with a couple of tablespoons of organic olive oil. It was applied down my spine and across my shoulder blades every evening. I also used 4 drops of Ravensara and 3 drops of Thieves rubbed in neat as well. Then heat was applied.

The pain was a level 10 before the oils. All my pain was gone after three days of application, but I continued the application of oils for another 10 days.

I could only apply the oil in the evening because I worked in a place that served food. I could not smell from the oils but it still worked in a short amount of time.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: herpes — "The presence of beta-caryophyllene in many essential oils might contribute strongly to their antiviral ability. These results indicate that phenylpropanoids and sesquiterpenes present in essential oils contribute to their antiviral activity against HSV [herpes simplex virus]."Link
2.Associated topics: neuralgia,herpes,shingles — "The patient was successfully treated with topical peppermint oil [for postherpetic neuralgia, a complication of shingles].... The authors believe this is the first evidence of peppermint oil (or menthol) having a strong analgesic effect on neuropathic pain."Link
3.Associated topics: itching — "[T]ea tree oil seems to be a more effective anti-eczematic agent than zinc oxide and clobetasone butyrate...."Link
4.Associated topics: herpes — "Essential oils from anise, hyssop, thyme, ginger, camomile and sandalwood were screened for their inhibitory effect against herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) [genital herpes]. A clearly dose-dependent virucidal activity against HSV-2 could be demonstrated for all essential oils tested. Chamomile oil exhibited a high selectivity index and seems to be a promising candidate for topical therapeutic application as virucidal agents for treatment of herpes genitalis."Link
