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 recently had a surgical procedure on my big toe from an ingrown toenail. I was prescribed a cream after the procedure and used it accordingly.

Within two days, I had a very painful infection at the surgery site. It hurt to walk, to change out the bandages, or even put any sort of pressure on the site. I discontinued the cream the doctor gave me.

I was new to using Young Living oils and thought this was a great way to experiment. I put one drop of Oregano into a capsule (then filled the rest of the capsule with grapeseed oil). I did this one evening and then the next morning. The entire infection was gone. There was no more swelling, redness, or pain.

A few days later, it all came back. I took a Q-tip and put several drops on the tip and rubbed that all over the surgery site. I highly recommend diluting Oregano, no matter what, but I was determined to get this infection taken care of. It did burn for a few minutes, but I have not had to use anything on this toe since. What a delight!!
