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.

I had my 3rd child in October and while I was in the hospital I had my tubes tied. After the surgery there was a small red spot next to my belly button that turned into what my Dr called a pustule, that was about an inch long - and he said they sometimes happen. He drained it to relieve the pressure and pain and within a couple of days it was gone and I hardly thought anything of it. This was at my son's 2nd week child check.

Last month, I got a similar irritated spot on my stomach and rather than turning into another 1 inch pustule, it turned into a massive painful boil (a little bit larger than the size of my hand) within 5 days. The Dr lanced it, confirmed it was MRSA (but ironically can't tell me that I got it from the hospital 3 months ago) and wanted me to go on Bactrim, but recommended I stop nursing my son for the 10 day length of the antibiotic.

I know that it takes 3 days to wean a baby from the breast and I am completely opposed to giving my children formula. I'm also aware of side affects such as yeast infections from antibiotics. Plus my sister is allergic to Bactrim so I'd have to watch for reaction in myself and my son if I decided to nurse him while on the medication. I cried for 2 hours and decided this was not a feasible option for me.

The Dr told me that if I chose not to take the antibiotics that was fine, as long as the infection continued to improve, but if it started to get worse in anyway to start the Bactrim immediately and to go to the ER.

So I started doing research and read that Thieves oil kills MRSA. I ordered the Thieves kit and 2 bars of Thieves soap and I got started.

I had a Reiki session done on the infections site and she gave me further information as well. This is MY regimen for killing MY MRSA infection. I'm not a Dr and cannot diagnose your condition.

I drank a tablespoon of raw apple cider vinegar and a tablespoon of raw honey in a glass of hot water with a drop of Thieves and a drop of Orange oil twice a day (disgusting, by the way) - and am now trying to implement that into my daily diet at least once a day.

Hot compresses with one drop each of RC, Purification, and Thieves 2-4 times a day. I also washed with the Thieves bar soap and moisturized the infection with Lavender to try to help reduce scarring and over drying. I kept it covered to avoid contamination of my clothing and have been adding Thieves cleaner and bleach to my laundry.

I also had a Raindrop therapy session done towards the end of the healing process.

I've been having my husband check it and confirm it's been looking better and he kept telling me that if I was that worried about it to take the Bactrim. I told him to shove it and act like he loved me more than once, lol. He's amazed at how well it worked and I got him drinking my vinegar and honey concoction last week when he started getting the cold/flu. It kicked it out of him in a day!

My infection was drained within 2 days of starting the compresses and 2 weeks later... the infection is gone and my stomach just has a dark red mark where it's still healing from where they lanced it.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: colds — "In confirming the presence of peripheral airways dysfunction in nonsmokers with uncomplicated common colds, our data imply that the changes can be modified favorably by short-term aromatics inhalation."Link
2.Associated topics: colds — "Cineole has mucolytic, bronchodilating and anti-inflammatory properties and reduces the exacerbation rate in patients suffering from COPD, as well as ameliorates symptoms in patients suffering from asthma and rhinosinusitis.... The effects of Cineole in the treatment of acute bronchitis were clearly measurable and could be proven after a treatment period of merely 4 days. This study corroborates the fact that Cineole actively and significantly reduces cough frequency after four days."Link
3.Associated topics: flu-(Influenza),colds — "Taken together, we found an essential oil blend [Orange, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary] notably attenuates influenza virus PR8 infection in vitro via inhibition of viral protein synthesis at the post-transcription level. The lack of toxicity and potent specific inhibition ability make the essential oil a possible antiviral drug for influenza virus proliferation control and treatment."Link
4.Associated topics: breastfeeding-/-milk-supply-/-nursing-/-lactation — "Foeniculum vulgare Mill, commonly called fennel, has been used in traditional medicine for a wide range of ailments related to digestive, endocrine, reproductive, and respiratory systems. Additionally, it is also used as a galactagogue agent for lactating mothers.... Foeniculum vulgare has emerged as a good source of traditional medicine and it provides a noteworthy basis in pharmaceutical biology for the development/formulation of new drugs and future clinical uses."Link
5.Associated topics: MRSA — "As proven in vitro, essential oils [Eucalyptus, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Thyme, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Cinnamon, Grapefruit, Clove, Sandalwood, Peppermint, Sage] represent a cheap and effective antiseptic topical treatment option even for antibiotic-resistant strains [such] as MRSA and antimycotic [antifungal]-resistant Candida species."Link

7.Associated topics: MRSA,abscess-/-boil-/-carbuncle — "Lavender essential oil displays the stronger antioxidant activity against lipid peroxidation in a linoleic acid model system and good antibacterial activity against four rhinitis-related bacteria including staphylococcus aureus, Micrococcus ascoformans, Proteus vulgaris, and Escherichia coli."Link
8.Associated topics: scars — "[One] method employed for wound healing is the application of lavender oil. Due to its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties, it is thought to prevent wound infections and to play a role in reducing pain by lowering inflammation.... Lavender oil is known to have antibacterial, antifungal, sedative, and/or antidepressant effects.... In addition to its antimicrobial effects, the anti-inflammatory analgesic properties of lavender oil have also been emphasized... The use of L. Angustifolia [lavender] is particularly recommended in chronically infected wounds due to its immune-stimulating and antimicrobial effects. There are also reports that lavender oil reduces scar tissue."Link
