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 son ruptured his eardrum a week before leaving for college. When he came home for his first ear check, it was not fully healed. The doctor (an ENT) said sometimes surgery was needed if the eardrum would not heal by itself. (We had experienced the surgery with a daughter.)

Research did not reveal to me any other cases of using oils to help with the healing process for the eardrum. I gave my son a mix of a couple of oils to use once or twice a day.

His second follow up appointment with the ENT showed that there was still an area that had not healed. At that point, I made a blend of Lavender, Frankincense, Ravensara, Helichrysum, and Thieves. He gently rubbed it in front of, behind, and below his ear every well as praying for healing.

The day before Thanksgiving we went in for our pre-op appointment - but surgery was cancelled due to his eardrum being healed! To God be the Glory! We are all thrilled that God chose to heal without surgery, and we love the gentle support of the oils.

helichrysum-oil - "...its flowers and leaves are the most used parts in the treatment of health disorders such as allergies, colds, cough, skin, liver and gallbladder disorders, inflammation, infections and sleeplessness... In vitro studies characterized Helichrysum as an antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory agent. Its flavonoids and terpenes were effective against bacteria (e.g. Staphylococcus aureus), its acetophenones, phloroglucinols and terpenoids displayed antifungal action against Candida albicans and its flavonoids and phloroglucinols inhibited HSV and HIV, respectively.... Regarding Helichrysum italicum in vivo activity, the highlight goes to ...the anti-inflammatory properties exhibited by its flavonoids, acetophenones and phloroglucinols, as seen in animal models."Link
