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.

My son has been plagued with the most stinky feet I have ever smelled, which also make his shoes stink. Not only can everyone smell his feet from across the room, but I have to buy him new shoes often because of the stench. This has been very embarrassing when out in public with him.

He has tried over-the-counter products, and nothing has worked. He continued to wash his feet every day and spray the over-the-counter items on his feet and in his shoes as prescribed by our primary care physician, to no avail.

We are new to Young Living essential oils. Upon receiving my Everyday Oils kit, I decided to start using the Thieves oil blend on his feet. After one topical application, his feet did not stink the next day. For the first three days, I used a couple of drops applied topically on both feet. After the third day, I started rubbing it on his feet every other day.

It has been three and a half weeks since we started this process... and still no stinky feet or shoes!
