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 noticed a small dry patch on my upper lip one day. Not thinking anything of it, I continued using my lip gloss, one with an sponge applicator.

The next day upon waking, my entire upper lip was dry and peeling! I checked other testimonials and found Thieves was a help, so I started mixing a small amount of shea butter with one drop of Thieves oil. The lip was throbbing, but Thieves calmed the throbbing and started the healing process.

Unfortunately the infection spread to my lower lip too, and area started peeling as well. I remained diligent in applying the Thieves and shea butter mix, plus alternated with Helichrysum oil as well.

Four days into the treatment, the irritation has ended, and though there is slight peeling, the oils have allowed for new skin to come through without embarrassment or inconvenience. My lips felt worse to the touch than they appeared to everyone else.

Thank the Lord for Young Living Essential Oils! Needless to say, I won't be using that type of lip gloss anymore!
