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 mother had a mastectomy in July, since then she has had one spot that has caused many problems that would not resolve itself. This had been going on for 4 months.

Finally she was tired of the drainage and smell and we had decided that she should see if the doctor could address the problem.

Last week after I had taken her and scheduled the next appointment, I thought of my oils, which are very new to me. I had heard that Lavender had accelerating and regenerative properties for wounds

So I decided I had nothing to lose and started putting a few drops daily on my mother's wound. Within one day it started to improve and had no more drainage.

Monday I called the doctor to cancel her upcoming appointment. We were scheduled to go in to have the wound scraped out and stitched up, but it was no longer necessary.

I am loving these oils!
