I am 33 years old and woke up one morning with an itchy and burning rash on the left side of my back...only a small patch. I asked fellow coworkes and even my sister what they were and all came back as SHINGLES.

I researched the oils that I could use and found out that Thieves and Purification works best. So I started immediately. 2 days later I went to the doctor just to get a proper diagnosis and have this information on my chart. I was told it was either dermatitis or bug bites. Two different diagnosis' and was prescribed a steriod cream. I didn't use the cream I continued using the oils daily and as needed.

It has been 1 week and my shingles are gone completely. I belive I had shingles only because of the symptoms and that 5 people confirmed it, one of whom had shingles herself.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: herpes — "The presence of beta-caryophyllene in many essential oils might contribute strongly to their antiviral ability. These results indicate that phenylpropanoids and sesquiterpenes present in essential oils contribute to their antiviral activity against HSV [herpes simplex virus]."Link
2.Associated topics: neuralgia,herpes,shingles — "The patient was successfully treated with topical peppermint oil [for postherpetic neuralgia, a complication of shingles].... The authors believe this is the first evidence of peppermint oil (or menthol) having a strong analgesic effect on neuropathic pain."Link
3.Associated topics: itching-(Pruritus) — "[T]ea tree oil seems to be a more effective anti-eczematic agent than zinc oxide and clobetasone butyrate...."Link
4.Associated topics: herpes — "Essential oils from anise, hyssop, thyme, ginger, camomile and sandalwood were screened for their inhibitory effect against herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) [genital herpes]. A clearly dose-dependent virucidal activity against HSV-2 could be demonstrated for all essential oils tested. Chamomile oil exhibited a high selectivity index and seems to be a promising candidate for topical therapeutic application as virucidal agents for treatment of herpes genitalis."Link
