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.

After helping a friend clean her garage one morning, I noticed by 5 p.m. a very large, tender and red area on my thumb. Due to a very busy evening, I was unable to address it until midnight. By that time, what had obviously become cellulitis, had spread widely in both directions and was quite red, hot and painful.

Research led me to combine a blend of Lavender, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Helichrysum, and Copaiba. By placing the blend over the affected area once or twice before retiring for the evening, I awoke to find the center of the cellulitis area completely normal in color, temperature and sensation! Only a wide ring of redness remained.

My husband experienced two episodes of cellulitis from MRSA, both of which required a 2 week antibiotic treatment through a PIC line into his heart, and one of which was due to a spider bite. (I later learned my friend had killed a large brown spider in her garage shortly after I left). Due to my husband's experience and concern, he insisted that I see a dermatologist that morning, who confirmed my diagnosis of cellulitis.

However, she had never seen cellulitis resolve on it's own, nor resolve without a strong dose of antibiotic therapy!! She was so impressed, she recommended that I continue with the oils since they were obviously working! She also requested that I share the oils with her husband, who is a chiropractor.

In addition, the staff was so impressed with the oils and the wonderful uses (Since I carry my oils with me, we had a mini 9 oils demonstration in the back office before I left!) several of them want to have an oils gathering at their home!

By the second day, the cellulitis was completely resolved with no evidence whatsoever of having a spider bite or widely spread inflammation.

I praise God for the incredible gift He has given us through the plants He provided at creation and that He allowed me to learn about Young Living and their commitment to therapeutic-grade essential oils! Our family believes!!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: antibiotic — "As proven in vitro, essential oils [Eucalyptus, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Thyme, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Cinnamon, Grapefruit, Clove, Sandalwood, Peppermint, Sage] represent a cheap and effective antiseptic topical treatment option even for antibiotic-resistant strains [such] as MRSA and antimycotic [antifungal]-resistant Candida species."Link
2.Associated topics: cellulitis — "14 plant essential oils -- anise (Pimpinella anisum), bay leaves (Laurus nobilis), cinnamon bark (Cinnamomum verum), clove (Eugenia caryophyllata), fennel (Foeniculum vulgare), hop (Humulus lupulus), Istanbul oregano (Origanum vulgare subsp. hirtum), Izmir oregano (Origanum onites), mint (Mentha piperita), myrtus (Myrtus communis), orange peel (Citrus sinensis), sage (Salvia officinalis), thyme (Thymbra spicata), and Turkish oregano (Origanum minutiflorum) -- were related to inhibition of 10 bacteria (Listeria innocua, coagulase-negative staphylococci, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Yersinia enterocolitica, Salmonella Enteritidis, Salmonella Typhimurium, Proteus mirabilis, Escherichia coli O157:H7, and Klebsiella oxytoca)."Link
3.Associated topics: cellulitis — "Lavender essential oil displays the stronger antioxidant activity against lipid peroxidation in a linoleic acid model system and good antibacterial activity against four rhinitis-related bacteria including staphylococcus aureus, Micrococcus ascoformans, Proteus vulgaris, and Escherichia coli."Link
4.Associated topics: helichrysum-oil — "...its flowers and leaves are the most used parts in the treatment of health disorders such as allergies, colds, cough, skin, liver and gallbladder disorders, inflammation, infections and sleeplessness... In vitro studies characterized Helichrysum as an antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory agent. Its flavonoids and terpenes were effective against bacteria (e.g. Staphylococcus aureus), its acetophenones, phloroglucinols and terpenoids displayed antifungal action against Candida albicans and its flavonoids and phloroglucinols inhibited HSV and HIV, respectively.... Regarding Helichrysum italicum in vivo activity, the highlight goes to ...the anti-inflammatory properties exhibited by its flavonoids, acetophenones and phloroglucinols, as seen in animal models."Link
