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.

I have a funny, but very neat story to share about my husband. He has had a large bump on the back of his hand for over a year now. It has been hard to the touch, changes size occasionally, and sometimes even hurts. Since he has an extreme aversion to doctors, he's refused to even have it looked at.

Well, I pulled my essential oils reference book out a few weeks ago when he mentioned it hurting again, and we tried the Thyme / Oregano protocol for only a few days. I think it was the strong scent of these two powerful oils that made it difficult for him and me to sleep, so he stopped using them.

Today, he showed me his wrist and my jaw dropped. The bump is almost gone! Three weeks ago, it was the size of a large olive. Now it's the size of a green pea! Evidently, he felt the oils "calling to him."

He's been putting a drop of Peppermint, the Thieves blend, Oregano, and Idaho Balsam Fir in a 16 oz glass of water and drinking it every night before bed. He says he's been doing this for about a week. I had no idea! I asked him why he used the Idaho Balsam Fir and his response was "I like the smell of it." Go figure!

While grinning from ear to ear over his sneakiness in using the oils in secret, I'm still amazed at the reduction in this bump. I've never seen anything like this. I'm only mad that I didn't take "before" pictures.

9/14/06 UPDATE:

After receiving a question about my testimonial, I asked my husband if his bump was gone or if it was still around. He had to think about which hand it was on because it is completely gone. He can't feel any kind of bump under the skin.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: cyst — "[M]any curative properties attributed to various plants in indigenous medicine are also present in their essential oils.... These oils exert a number of general effects from the pharmacological viewpoint. When applied locally, the essential oils mix readily with skin oils, allowing these to attack the infective agents quickly and actively.... In vitro studies [were] conducted by the author on antimicrobial and anthelmintic [destructive to parasitic worms] properties of some essential oils...."Link
2.Associated topics: joints — "Ruxiang (Gummi olibanum), the dried gum resin of Boswellia carterii (BC) [frankincense], has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate pain and inflammation for thousands of years.... The data show that BC extract has significant anti-arthritic and anti-inflammation effects and suggest that these effects may be mediated via the suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines."Link
3.Associated topics: joints — "We have demonstrated that Boswellia frereana [frankincense] prevents collagen degradation, and inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory mediators and MMPs. Due to its efficacy we propose that B. frereana should be examined further as a potential therapeutic agent for treating inflammatory symptoms associated with arthritis."Link
4.Associated topics: joints — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
