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.

My grandpa had an infection in his ankle that required surgery and 6 weeks of IV antibiotics. Following that an MRI showed no progress and the doctor wanted to operate again and scrape the bone saying that if it was all the way around, he would have to amputate!

I had previously treated a bone infection in the knee of a pony with great success 3 months prior, that gave me the courage to convince grandpa to give the Thieves oil blend a try.

He applied 2-3 drops of Thieves on the affected ankle for 3-4 weeks. Upon returning to Florida and going to the doctor there, he was told the infection went into remission!

Thank you God and Young Living Essential Oils! It has been more than 10 years with no signs of reoccurring.
