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 following testimonial from my Japanese friend who is a faithful user of Young Living essential oils on how she succeeded in minimizing the cyst she had inside one of her eyelids which was bothering her for 3 years.

"I had this cyst the size of a grain of rice inside my left eyelid which often developed into a pea size with some pain whenever I had a tiring day. Since I did not like to go to a hospital I just left it there but my friend continued to persuade me to go and see a doctor, so I finally went to see him before a long holiday.

I then asked him to take it out, but he adamantly refused it pointing to the coming long holidays ahead. So I finally said to myself OK if that's the case, then I will take care of it myself.

Since then, I started applying various essential oils over the cyst around the eye being careful not to let it get inside the eye. The first one I tried on was Lemongrass, because of it's supposedly draining power, however, it was very itchy.

When I woke up the next day, I had this secretion of mucus coming out of my eye, but the size of the cyst remained the same, so I switched to Juniper, which I read somewhere that it was good for the eye.

The next morning, my left eye was difficult to open because it was full of mucus. So I then added the Endoflex oil blend because it's supposed to be good for the endocrine system, and I alternated between Endoflex and Juniper for a week, after which I discovered that the size of my cyst was minimized.

This experience is about the application of essential oil around the eye, so it is the responsibility of the person applying not to get it in the eye. For the past 3 years I really suffered from this pea size cyst in my left eye which was apparent to others. Since it was inside my eyelid I kept having this discomfort.

Now, it shrunk down to a minimum size that others hardly recognize.

I'm just grateful and, at the same time, amazed by the beneficial effects of Young Living essential oils."
