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 husband came home from a week long trip with an area on his leg that looked like bites. It did not itch but hurt. He was trying to decide whether to go to our primary care doctor or the dermatologist. Thinking they were spider bites, I told him we should try the oils first.

The 1st night we put Frankincense diluted with olive oil. Repeated this the next morning. Then we switched to Thieves, again diluted for the next 4 days. The "bites" started disappearing right away leaving only red marks.

He had a regularly scheduled appointment with the dermatologist today. When he described the "bites" to the doctor, the doctor informed him he had shingles. The oils cleared this up. I was going to get the shingles immunization at a cost of $240 but instead will keep my oils handy. I will always have Thieves and Frankincense oils in my home.
