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 broke out in a sore on my back and assumed it was a bug bite, but quickly realized it was shingles as they spread around my side and onto my breast. I had 3 lesions on my breast, 4 under my arm and 6 on my back including one directly on my spine. I was overseas at the time, so only had limited oils with me, but applied what I had.

As soon as I returned home I started applying a mixture of: 10 forgiveness, 7 German Chamomile, 10 Melissa, 5 Peppermint, 10 Lavender, 10 Helichrysum, 5 Exodus II, 10 Ravensara, 20 Thieves and 10 Elemi. I used anything I thought would help and anything anyone said would help. I applied this mixture several times a day. My shingles never got very severe and were gone in less than 2 weeks. I'm sure it was the oils that got me through, because I know many people who suffer with them for months.
