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.

Last week my son showed me the back of his hand asking me what is this Mom? There was a perfect circle on the back of his hand with raised red dots which I do believe is Ringworm.

I read in my essential oils reference book that Thyme and Lemongrass are great antifungals.

I alternated Thyme oil 1-2 drops during the daytime and Lemongrass oil 1-2 drops, at night. Fortunately the infection is nearly gone in less than a week.

If your skin is sensitive it may be best to use a carrier oil 50-50 like coconut or olive oil to reduce discomfort. We did not need to do this for my son, but others might.
