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.

My 3 year old daughter had small pimple like bumps under one of her arms that would itch at times. I asked her doctor about them and he told me it was Molluscum Contagiosum, a wart virus. He didn't recommend meds, just watch them and they should disappear over 6-18 months.

After about 3-4 months they began to bother her and spread, so I started using some essential oils. The Thieves oil blend stung, Eucalyptus Globulus and Tea Tree oils by themselves didn't seem to work.

I looked in the Essential Oils Desk Reference book at all the oils high in antiviral properties and made a combination of all that I owned. It took care of her bumps within two weeks, rubbing it on twice a day. My recipe includes:

* 10 drops Basil
* 10 drops Clove
* 20 drops Eucalyptus Globulus
* 8 drops Helichrysum
* 10 drops Myrrh
* 5 drops Oregano
* 10 drops Peppermint
* 5 drops Thyme
* 10 drops Thieves blend
* 30 drops Tea Tree

I would then add about 120 drops of the V-6 mixing oil. I hope this helps someone out there. I sure love essential oils!
