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.

My mother has endured extremely painful chapped and peeling lips for about 4 1/2 years. She has tried numerous natural chapsticks and lip balms and other natural remedies on her lips, but none healed them, and only one chapstick even mollified them. Her lips would usually improve throughout the night, but at a certain point in the following day, they would usually start peeling and continue peeling until they were extremely raw and red.

We looked diligently and prayed fervently for answers and one day read a suggestion to use Clove oil on the lips to heal them. At first this burned and stung quite a lot, but my mother abandoned her former chapstick and applied the Clove oil to her lips two or three times per day for about two days. Now she uses a pure coconut oil chapstick only, instead of the somewhat unnatural chapstick that she had had to resort to previously. After a couple weeks, she is still abundantly thankful to be free from peeling and chapping. Her lips look very pink and healthy instead of red and inflamed.
