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.

As my treatment progressed into latex bands in the last part of my treatment, my lips became cracked and flaky--apparently a usual occurrence with braces. No amount of lip balm or similar products made real difference. I read that if lips stay cracked and won't heal, there can be a minor fungal infection involved, so I applied oils with anti-fungal properties around the edge of the lips. Primarily, I used the Essential Beauty Serum for Acne-Prone Skin, which contains some of those oils. However, while it helped, the cracking continued, with the lips being dry and pealing, splitting open when I moved my lips. Finally, I applied Caster Oil, or Palma Christa, together with Sandalwood, and while still a bit dry and needing morning and night applications for the dryness, the cracks have disappeared.
