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.

A couple of weeks ago, I noticed a pimple on one of my outer labia. I didn't think much of it, though in an unusual place, it was small. I figured it would disappear within a week. Well, after a few days I felt some pain in the same area - when I would sit. I reinspected the pimple only to find that it had swollen considerably, from the size of a small bead, to the size of a quarter.

I began to put Purification on it, remember that it was my mother's recommendation for "regular" pimples.

A couple of days later, there was more pain, and I could tell that there was an infection, though there was no head forming. I added Thieves oil applied it at least 3 times that day.

I was shocked to see the next day that there was a very noticeable size difference in my labia. One was twice the size of the other, and the once small-bead sized pimple was now the size of a ping pong ball! It was very hard and sensitive to the touch.

I added PanAway to my regimen for the pain. Having experienced remedies and healing with Young Living essential oils before, I prayed and believed that God would lead me to a solution on

I got on the website and searched, "infected pimple" and "abscess", and quickly came across a testimony of a woman who had a similar ping-pong ball abscess on her labia! She reported going to her doctor and being told that she would require surgery to remove the infected sebaceous cyst and was prescribed antibiotics. She also reported using Frankincense (which I was out of) and Immupower. After adding Immupower, she wrote that her abscess burst and began draining within two hours.

I didn't have Immupower, but was led to research what the blend contained. Its first ingredient was Hyssop. I remembered reading that the first ingredients in a list are those that of highest quantity and that my mother had Hyssop. I quickly called her to ask if I could borrow it.

I had only applied it 3 times (over the course of a day) and a head quickly formed. It began draining the next day. Relief! Within 2 days it was half its size, and a couple of days later it was back to the size of a large marble, and by the end of that week, it had shrunk to the size of a small pebble. As I continue with the oil, I continue to experience shrinking.

These oils have been such a blessing to our family and anyone we have introduced them to.
