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.

If you notice fungus growing under your toe nail like I did you might want to try this. I've been doing this and it seems to be working.

Cut the unhealthy nail away as much as possible.

File the remaining unhealthy nail down thinner with an emory board where the nail is discolored, as thin as possible.

Put a drop or two of oil with anti-fungal properties (I'm using Tea Tree oil) on some cotton and tape it to the affected area.

Leave it in place for a day or two.

File the nail again weekly, a good time is after a shower, and repeat the oil, cotton and taping as before.

My big nail seems to be growing out in a healthy manner, while the oil is killing the fungus or at least keeping it in check.

This should take as much time to kill the fungus while the nail grows out as if you were taking the pills.

But this is certainly preferable to medicating your whole body while doing it and a heck of alot cheaper, too. Happy oiling!
