I am a runner. In the heat of the summer, wearing tight clothing and sweating can cause bacteria to grow. In turn, I developed a staph infection in the form of folliculitis on my legs.
I had developed 3-4 fluid filled blisters on my legs and started applying Thieves topically to fight the infection. For a period of three days I followed that with ingesting 10-15 drops of Thieves three times a day. Then twice a day for the remaining week. During the week I also alternated Melaleuca (alternafolia) and Frankincense topically and covered with a bandage.
After a period of one week the blisters had drained, the sores were flattened and the skin was peeling away to healthy skin!
