I was having severe pain in my lower back on the left side. (nerve pain) Went to the doctors and she said there was no rash but all the symtems were leading her to believe I was getting shingles. She then informed me that I could break out into a rash and it would be painful. She said she could give me a perscription for the pain.

I took the written perscription from her came back to work to email my sister to ask what to do for shingles they recommended Ravensara and Helichrysum. So I ordered them and had it shipped overnight!! I began to use them every couple hours. Well needless to say the pain stopped. I never did get the rash so I can't say for sure it was shingles but to this day when I feel the sensation of the nerve pain in my lower left side I grab the oils and use them. What a wonderful thing not to have to rely on prescription pain medication.
