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 have been plagued by eczema on my feet for over two years. I tried so many things as creams including Oronine from Japan, local Hawaiian Kukui Nut oil, and different Young Living Oils as Melaleuca, Lavender, and Peppermint. All of these products provided relief from the itch but never really got rid of the eczema.

Until one day I picked up a bottle of which, I thought was Lavender, to put it in some water to soak my feet. After I poured several drops into the water, I realized that I had just put in the Valor oil blend!! I then realized I had put the wrong one in. After adding in Melaleuca and Peppermint I went ahead and soaked my feet for 20-30 minutes anyway.

The next day, to my surprise, the area of the eczema had reduced in sized and was getting better. I was so surprise and happy with my discovery that I looked at the essential oils reference book to see if Valor was one of the oil blends listed for eczema. It wasn't listed but another oil blend called Melrose kept grabbing my attention.

After my shower, I then put a few drops of Melrose on the area and, like magic before my eyes, the eczema area shrank even further the next day!! I now put Melrose on my feet every night after showering and cover it with a band-aid.

This helps reduce the itch and exposure to the air which makes the eczema area dry and itchy. I even put several drops of Melrose into the tub of water along with Lavender, Melaleuca, and Peppermint to soak my feet.

Soaking the feet with these oils seems to aid the process faster.
