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.

For the last two plus years I have been battling this fungus on one big toe. It started with my toe being black around the edges.

I tried Frankincense but that didn't seem to help. Then I used Tea Tree oil. That rid my toe of the black color but there was still a thick, yellow part of my nail and when I took that yellow part off it got worse. I ran out of the Tea Tree as well. I tried the Thieves oil blend and it seemed to make my nail fall apart even more.

I saw my doctor and she suggested I have my toenail surgically removed. That was all I needed to hear to motivate me to buy more Tea Tree oil as soon as possible. I have been using it twice a day like I used to. I also used Grapefruit essential oil as it seems to help the nail grow which I apply once a day to the base of the nail.

The nail is not completely grown in, but in just two months it looks so much healthier! I look forward to wearing open-toed shoes again!
