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 had a drastic dark pigment on my face for years. This sun spot made me feel insecure and self conscious ALL THE TIME. I spent tons of money on laser facials, IPL facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and silk peel treatments. The pigment just would not release. My dermatologist didn't even know why it was so stubborn.

Finally I set clear intention to release this blemish once and for all. I got very clear on this in my own mind and started to imagine what it would feel like to have a radiant clear complexion. I did visualizations on this and filled my heart with gratitude. (I gave thanks in advance for the fact that my sun spot would be released and that I would feel confident again.)

Now that my inner environment was clear I started with my essential oils on that targeted spot. I used Thieves oil 1-2 times per day, usually morning and night before bed. I put oil on straight and would use my fingernail to "press it in" to my skin. (This spot was at about the level of the bottom of my nose). I had noticed a light burning sensation on my skin and gave thanks to the oil for penetrating in there and breaking up the pigment. I could also feel a light burning in my left eye (as the spot I was treating was below my eye) I do not recommend using Thieves oil too close to your eyes, make sure to test it first to see how your skin reacts, perhaps a small area on your chin, far from your eyes.

I combined this Thieves oil regimen with an 0.5% pure retinol syrum by PCA (physicians care alliance brand). I also used an organic skin care herbal spot serum by Eminence brand in conjunction with the Thieves oil and retinol.

The pigment on my face from sun damage literally started rising up to the surface level of my skin! It was amazing! I knew it was rising to be released. I had a light scab form over the area and took the treatments to half the frequency. Once the scab was fully emerged I let it be and waited 3 days for it to naturally slough off in its own.

A beautiful skin tone matching the rest of my face emerged. My complexion was restored! I was so excited and I am still so grateful. Thieves oil really worked!

2.Associated topics: skin — "[M]any curative properties attributed to various plants in indigenous medicine are also present in their essential oils.... These oils exert a number of general effects from the pharmacological viewpoint. When applied locally, the essential oils mix readily with skin oils, allowing these to attack the infective agents quickly and actively.... In vitro studies [were] conducted by the author on antimicrobial and anthelmintic [destructive to parasitic worms] properties of some essential oils...."Link
3.Associated topics: skin — "[One] method employed for wound healing is the application of lavender oil. Due to its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties, it is thought to prevent wound infections and to play a role in reducing pain by lowering inflammation.... Lavender oil is known to have antibacterial, antifungal, sedative, and/or antidepressant effects.... In addition to its antimicrobial effects, the anti-inflammatory analgesic properties of lavender oil have also been emphasized... The use of L. Angustifolia [lavender] is particularly recommended in chronically infected wounds due to its immune-stimulating and antimicrobial effects. There are also reports that lavender oil reduces scar tissue."Link
4.Associated topics: skin — "Tea tree oil (TTO) (Melaleuca alternifolia) has been used recently as an effective topical application for the treatment of skin infections due to a variety of aetiological microbial agents, including mainly bacterial infections. We detail... the successful treatment with TTO of a paediatric patient with warts on her right middle finger. TTO was applied topically once daily to the lesions for 12 days, with a successful outcome, including complete re-epithelization of the infected areas. The case highlights the potential use of TTO in the treatment of common warts due to human papilloma virus."Link

6.Associated topics: skin — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link

[W]e showed that local ANBP treatment not only significantly enhanced wound healing by relieving inflammation, increasing formation of granulation tissue, and accelerating re-epithelialization, but [it] also reduced scar formation by decreasing collagen production [and] protuberant height and volume of scars and [by] increasing collagen maturity.... [Results show that ANBP] promot[es] wound healing and alleviat[es] scar formation, which may be an effective therapy for human wounds at the earliest stage."Link
