Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.
I got a pedicure and didn't realize that the gal had cut down the sides of my big toe toenail halfway down the nail. It wasn't until the next day that the pain and swelling began. The side of my toe started swelling and turned red then later purple.
As soon as I felt discomfort, I started putting one or two drops of Thieves on the area and started taking two Inner Defense capsules two times a day. I also added Wintergreen and PanAway for pain on the toe. The combination of oils took off the nail polish, but I certainly wasn't going to use regular polish remover. Within four days the swelling and redness were gone.
Since the nail was cut so far down it feels as if I have an ingrown toenail, not near as painful as it once was, but still a little tender. The pain was so bad that I could barely stand to slip on my flip flops and putting on a covered toed shoe was out of the question. If it weren't for the oils, I would have gone to the doctor because I believe it started to get infected and would have just gotten worse.
