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 86 year old father-in-law woke up one morning, walked out by me and said he was "having a stroke". I asked him why he thought that, he could shake equal handgrasps, face was not drooping on one side, could talk well and did not complain of weakness on one side.
"My head hurts" Since he is a shorter balding man I tried to pat him on the head anyways, but this time when I did he yelped in pain.

I told him that I knew what he had, it wasn't a stroke, it was shingles. It is very painful to the touch. He did not have any blisters yet, so we caught it early. I applied with a gentle "blush brush" a mixture of Bergamot, Tea Tree, Lavender and Ravensara in Tanamu carrier oil. We repeated this several times per day, and I put the same oils in Genesis lotion and applied to his feet massaging it in. Within minutes his pain lessened, due to Lavender's anti-inflammatory properties. All other oils are highly anti viral as well. He only got 2 blisters, along side his nose, they only "tickle" upon occasion.

My dad, when he had shingles on his face was not so fortunate, my mother at the time (she believes now) did not want to do "anything but what the doctor said to do" My dad had huge black scabs on his forehead from the blisters in my sister's wedding pix, and to this day gets residual shooting pains through the same nerve roots affected by the shingles...where as my father in law with the oils does not have and due to oils only had a VERY mild case. He also enjoyed all the massage and attention! But the oils did the work!
