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.

A week after thinking we had gotten all of the glass out of my son's foot he told me it hurt. I took off his socks only to find that a quarter-sized area of his small foot was red and inflamed. You could tell it was infected and there was pus under the skin.

We took him into the clinic where they removed a lot of puss and a tiny shard of glass. Needless to say they wanted to put him on oral antibiotics but instead we applied Thieves and Purification. We applied both every hour the rest of that day.

The next day we alternated them. The area already looked like it was getting better on the second day. The redness was gone and it was no longer swollen. Instead it looked like a blister had drained. We continued to alternate Thieves and Purification on the third day but not nearly so frequently (maybe 3-4 times a day). That day the skin that looked like it had blistered started to come off. The skin underneath looked young but healthy.

By the fourth day the old skin came off. My son said it didn't hurt at all and the new skin didn't look too tender so we just let it be. By the end of a week's time from when we went in to get the splinter removed you couldn't tell that anything had even happened.
