Use Essential Oils for Shingles and Shingles Pain

ImageChef.com - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more

I happen to have my own testimony of using essential oils for shingles.

When my mother was undergoing surgery I was so stressed out. I didn't know how stressed out I was - my body had to tell me.

I thought at first my problem was a spider bite but then I found out it was shinges.

I had nerve discomfort and all the things that go with shingles.

The first thing I did was consult the texts The Essential Desk Reference and The Alternative Medicine book - both mentioned a few oils to use but the ravensara got my attention and vote. I started taking it internally in a capsule ( 7 drops in one capsule and I took one capsule in the morning and one at night).

Within 24 hours my pain and discomfort went away.

I followed this regime for 21 days.

I'll fill you in more later on this amazing natural remedy that I used.

Meanwhile, here are some topical application ideas for shingles. . . .

Blend together:
--10 drops sandalwood--5 drops blue cypress--4 drops peppermint--2 drops ravensara

Dilute 50:50 with massage oil and apply 6 - 10 drops on the
affected area, back of neck, and down the spine 1 - 3 times
daily. (from Essential Desk Reference)

Aromatherapy expert, and author of "Medical Aromatherapy" Dr.
Kurt Schnaubelt, says "Our greatest success in the treatment of
shingles is by applying a blend of 50% ravensara and 50%
calophyllum inophyllum (like St. John's Wort

Drastic improvements and complete remissions occur within seven
A case study was done of six hospice patients with shingles.
It was found that three essential oils combined together and
placed in distilled water and used as a spritz improved the
symptoms of the shingles.

The three oils used were:

This study was run by aromatherapist Noel Gilligan. Mr Gilligan
reported that after 48 hours:
--there was a significant reduction in the pain from the shingles--scabbing and healing of the pustules took place and in one
instance there was a disappearance of the pustules
