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.

When I was undergoing chemo, I shaved my hair down short as it was falling out. Some of the hair follicles on my head got infected. The oncologists take it very seriously when you have any kind of infection during chemo treatments, so even though they looked similar to pimples on my head, I was put on antibiotics several times.

The next time it happened I decided to try the oils before going on more antibiotics. I first tried Tea Tree, but it didn't make a lot of difference. I then tried a few drops of Melrose, and the infection cleared up overnight! I have since used Melrose when I've noticed a breakout of any kind, and it usually clears it up overnight.

The oils and prayer helped me get through cancer treatments without getting any other illness, even though it was during winter with all types of flus and colds around me. God gets the glory for providing these oils!
