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 mom just experienced her first, and hopefully only ever, boil. She thought it was a bug bite of some type, though she never felt a bite. She was visiting relatives and didn't have all her oils with her, but out of what she had we selected RC, Lavender & Peppermint so started applying them. The affected area was on her stomach and was 3 inches across, had a lump the size of an egg, was red and extremely painful.

The lump started to go down after she started using oils, before it had continued to get larger, and when she got home she started applying Purification and went to the doctor. Her doctor did not know what it was, but thought it might be MRSA and drained a good bit of puss out of it for relief and testing. She had already been applying RC and Lemon, which are best for MRSA, but began taking Lemon, Thyme and Oregano in a capsule as well. She learned you don't lick your fingers after making a capsule!

After a few days she decided it seemed more like a boil and that made perfect sense as I've had one. She added in Frankincense. As it turned out, the same oils she'd been using when we thought it was a bug bite were also good for a boil! I love the versatility of the oils!

Anyway, it healed up nicely as she applied the oils to it. At this point there is a spot the size of her pinky fingernail with a tiny lump, but she's going to continue applying oils till it's all gone, including Lavender to avoid any scarring.

My mom just got a call from the lab 16 days after the test to tell her it was fine and there was no bacteria. She's thankful she misplaced the antibiotics the doctor recommended and stuck to the oils, as it was most likely fungal and the antibiotics would have aggravated it.

My mom said she didn't use the oils as consistently as would have been good to because she was on vacation when it started and busy preparing for company upon return, so it likely took longer to heal than it otherwise would have, but it did stop hurting and start shrinking once she used the oils.
