I bought this oil after reading about its effectiveness for cold sores and I'm so glad I did! Definitely worth the price; you only need a small amount because it is extremely potent. I diluted it with coconut oil and applied it a few times a day for a couple days and it has really helped in healing my cold sore quickly. Also, it arrived sooner than anticipated, packaged very securely. So pleased with this company!!
I have a few patients taking chemotherapy for different types of cancers. They keep requesting to have me use this essential oil in their treatments. I use one drop mixed in a massage cream at the end of their treatment and apply near the area being treated for cancer or on opposite side i.e. breast cancer - I apply to the back shu heart, pericardium, blood and liver areas.
