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 1 year old developed a rash on her neck and chin. Within 24 hours, the bumps started popping up on her legs, arms, hands and feet. I took her to the doctor and they diagnosed her with hand, foot & mouth disease. They said that it was viral and there was really no way to treat it. They said to expect her to run a fever, probably have diarrhea and should develop blisters in her mouth.

When I got home, I immediately started rubbing her feet with Oregano & Thieves. I rubbed her belly with Gentle Baby and I rubbed her spine with Frankincense. I did this about every 3 hours or so. The next day, most of the bumps that had started to develop were gone. Within 2 days, all of the bumps had disappeared. I continued this treatment for 5 additional days just to make sure the virus was gone. I also diffused Thieves throughout the house as I have a 2 year old and this virus is highly contagious, especially to young children.

The 1 year old never developed any other symptoms besides the bumps. Those cleared within 72 hours and the 2 year old never got it either.
