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 developed a fungus under my great toenail that responded to Thieves and Melaleuca Alternafolia. I applied a drop or two of Thieves to the corner of the nail that was infected every morning.

After a couple of months, I switched to Melaleuca under the corner of the toenail every morning. As the nail grew out, it felt painful and appeared to becoming ingrown.

Every morning for about 3 weeks, I tucked a tiny piece of cotton under the corner of the nail and saturated it with Melaleuca. I am happy to say now that the fungus appears to be gone and there's no more pain at the corner of the nail. Thieves and Melaleuca to the rescue!!
