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.

If you suffer from shingles I hope this will help you:

* Layering in Raindrop Technique style, apply 3-4 drops each of Oregano, Mountain Savory and Thyme along the spine.

* Apply 15-20 drops V-6 Oil Complex to the spine, massage briefly over the other oils, then cover the skin with a dry towel and apply a warm pack for 15-20 minutes. Be cautious about warming. If the back becomes too hot, remove the warm pack immediately and add more V-6 Oil Complex to cool.

* Remove the warm pack and towel, then layer 4-8 drops each of Tea tree, Elemi and Peppermint along the spine.

* Put the dry towel back over the skin and apply an ice pack for 30 minutes
Raindrop Technique - Starting from the top of the spine, using two fingers, one each side of the spine, feather in a gentle flicking motion from the top of the spine, base of the skull, to the tailbone.

Lift fingers and go back up to the top again and repeat with the next oil. Always come down the spine. The oils are to be applied to the nerves that are coming out of the side of the spine.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: herpes — "The presence of beta-caryophyllene in many essential oils might contribute strongly to their antiviral ability. These results indicate that phenylpropanoids and sesquiterpenes present in essential oils contribute to their antiviral activity against HSV [herpes simplex virus]."Link
2.Associated topics: spine — "We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
3.Associated topics: neuralgia,herpes,shingles — "The patient was successfully treated with topical peppermint oil [for postherpetic neuralgia, a complication of shingles].... The authors believe this is the first evidence of peppermint oil (or menthol) having a strong analgesic effect on neuropathic pain."Link
4.Associated topics: herpes — "Essential oils from anise, hyssop, thyme, ginger, camomile and sandalwood were screened for their inhibitory effect against herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) [genital herpes]. A clearly dose-dependent virucidal activity against HSV-2 could be demonstrated for all essential oils tested. Chamomile oil exhibited a high selectivity index and seems to be a promising candidate for topical therapeutic application as virucidal agents for treatment of herpes genitalis."Link
