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.

Recently I developed flaky, dry skin patches in the corners of my mouth. They would flake, crack, bleed, and hurt like crazy. I tried various essential oils and that only made it worse so I saw a dermatologist who gave me a topical prescription for eczema.

The prescription worked but only temporarily and I continued to search the essential oils reference book for a possible drug free solution.

Then I tried Palmarosa oil. I had ordered it because it is said to regulate sebum production (I have oily skin) and it is said to help with skin problems like acne and eczema. It worked!

I now use it everyday in my moisturizer and it helps keep my oily shine down and I do not suffer from dry skin patches in the corners of my mouth any longer.
