My mother got a horrible case of shingles and it was 5 days before we figured out what was going on and went to doctor for treatment. She used different pain meds, tried a pain patch. It was awful and no help.

I read in my oil book that PEPPERMINT oil helps pain, so we use peppermint oil in shower gel and lotion daily. I also gave her one purple rainbow fluorite crystal on a string. By the next morning she was back to herself again.

Unfortunately she has the nerve pain unless she uses the oil and the stone faithfully. She tried to go without them, but always has to revert back to it so now she just stays with it. I have to replace the fluorite when the power is out of them periodically or when she is under more stress.
