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.

In June of 2010 I broke out with a horribly itchy rash. I thought that maybe it was hives. They got worse and worse. I saw my family doctor who put me on a 5 day regimine of steroids and said to come back if it wasn't better at the end of the 5 day. Well, it got worse as the days went along. I ended up going to a specialist in Dermatology who diagnosed me with pityriasis rosea, which is a virus. He said that at the least it would take 6 weeks to go away and may take up to a year.

A friend of mine turned me on to Peppermint and Lavender essential oils. The itching stopped immediately and within 1 week I could tell that the virus was dead and not spreading anymore. I'm a believer in these oils now and am telling all of my friends about them.

Additional keyword(s) assigned by the editor: virus, face, rash.
