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.

I am a Massage Therapist and contracted a fungal infection on my hands from one of my clients. I am very conscientious to avoid any areas on my clients that are red, inflammed or look suspicious. Somehow, this one slipped by me. I hesitate to use gloves during my massage because it decreases the tactile sensation I rely on to give a good, therapeutic massage.

Over the counter fungicides were not working, the itching was horrendous. I even tried a hydrocortisone cream for the itching. Nothing was working!

After consulting the on-line essential oils reference book I finally used a diluted combination of Clove and Oregano oils on my hands and, voila', it cleared it up in a matter of four days!

Don't know what I would do without the oils for my practice as well as my personal use!
