This oil is amazing! I use it primarily to activate Dr. Zhu scalp acupuncture lines in patients who cannot tolerate needles. 1 drop on a cotton swab rubbed into the desired zone is all that's needed. If the patient gets relief I teach them how to use the oil at home so they can get relief in between treatments. Applied topically Cajeput also dissipates bruises and dries up cold sores faster than anything else I know.
