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 recently had a bout with shingles and found I got some dramatic relief from using my available oils. I did this by consulting my essential oils reference book and looked up shingles. I didn't have all the specific oils but I used what I had which was Lavender, Thieves and Peppermint.

I combined equal parts of each oil and put it in a one ounce spray bottle and applied it a couple of times a day. It really helped soothe the pain.

Later I was given some Ravensara by my Yoga teacher to try, which also really helped relieve the painful nerve endings.

Thanks Young Living for helping me out when I needed it most!
