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.

My husband woke up with a horrific rash on his ears, face, waist and his left eye was swollen and closed.

I called my dear friend and she recommended putting Thieves Household Cleaner on it, sounded weird but what the heck, I tried it. WOW! Before you know it, his eye opened. I was extremely careful putting Thieves around his eye and his pain and itching calmed down.

We really don't know what it was, but it sure seemed like shingles to me. It was very painful before the oils, he said it was like knives poking in his skin.

By the time he was able to get into the doctor you could hardly see it, so the doc said it was probably an allergic reaction to something. I wonder?

I still think it was shingles.

4.Associated topics: food-allergy-/-sensitivity,allergic-reaction — "[T]he biological activity of 20 essential oils (EOs) from herbal plants and citrus fruits were investigated in terms of mammalian DNA polymerase (pol) inhibitory activity, cancer cell (human colon carcinoma) growth inhibitory activity, antiallergic activity... in rat basophilic leukemia cells, and antioxidant activity.... Among these EOs, chamomile... showed significant effects on both cancer cell growth and mast cell degranulation. On the basis of these results, chamomile EO can be recommended as a potentially useful, bioactive candidate for therapeutic applications."Link
