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.

As my dental treatment progressed into using latex bands, my lips became cracked and flaky--apparently a usual occurrence with braces. No amount of lip balm or similar products made any real difference.

Later I read that if lips stay cracked, there might be a minor fungal infection involved, so I applied oils with anti-fungal properties around the edge of the lips.

I primarily 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 peeling, splitting open when I moved my lips.

Finally, I applied some castor oil together with Sandalwood, and while still a bit dry and needing morning and night applications for the dryness, the cracks have finally disappeared.
