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 scratch on my friend's knee while gardening was healing okay, but 2 days later she had to visit a lady in the hospital. My friend crawled under the bed to retrieve a dropped item, and the scratch must have opened up a little. It began to get bigger.
She went to the doctor who prescribed penicillin. He did not take a swab for culture, although she had told him where the problem had started -- in the hospital.
The area swelled, festered, and began to grow, with pus and inflammation all around it -- not to mention the pain. My friend was worried when the lymph nodes in her groin began to swell up. (This was even after taking the antibiotics.)
She called me, and I recommended that she use Lemon Myrtle essential oil on the wound site, on the groin, and on the bottoms of her feet.
Three days later my friend called me to tell me that the lymph glands had gone down and that the inflammation and pus had decreased. She was very happy.
She kept up with the treatment for 5 or so days after all the symptoms had gone. And now she is fine.
Lemon Myrtle is not the only essential oil effective against MRSA (which is what we suspect it was). Frankincense, Geranium, Melaleuca, Peppermint, Thyme, and Oregano may also be effective.
Do not forget to skin test and dilute the oils if necessary. Use what you have on hand. I would not be without several bottles of Lemon Myrtle essential oil after this experience.
