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 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!
