fungus on nails

I had toenail fungus. We researched the Essential Oil
Manual and the oil testimonial website which both recommended Thieves and
Purification and the Animal Scents Ointment. In about the same amount of time
- a month - the fungus disappeared after daily use of the Oils & Ointment. The
Thieves turned the toenail fungus area brown and it kept getting better from there
and grew out. My friend with the same problem, did not want to take those prescriptions which are toxic, to the liver or the ointment creams which we had heard do not work and are a waste
So many of the YL Essential Oils are anti-fungal and their benefits overlap for many
purposes. Marguerite

toe nail fungus

I use Melrose to ward off infection
and speed the healing of small cuts on my fingers from my work as a hairstylist.
At that same time, I began to use Melrose, Lemongrass, or Melaleuca Alternafolia
(depending on whatever I decided for the day) to see if I could get rid of a fairly
advanced fungal infection under 4 toenails which had developed about 10 years
earlier while hiking in Nepal for three weeks in damp boots. When I started using
the oils, about 2/3 of each nail on the large toes had disattached from the nail bed.
They were only slightly itchy and uncomfortable but I was concerned about loosing t
he nails altogether. The good news is that the fungus apparently stopped in it's tracks because the itchy,
discomfort stopped within the first few applications and the nails were all normally
attached with no signs of fungus in about the same amount of time it takes a nail to
replace itself under normal circumstances. I have had no re-occurances since that time. The other REALLY good news is that so many clients at our hair salon, as well as
other friends and acquaintances, were interested in our oils and other YL products that
in just a few short years, one of the salon owners and I were able to 'close up shop'
because our Young Living businesses had grown enough to replace that income!
None of this would have been true except that our Young Living products and business
plan work!

At the Young Living Conference, Marc Schreuder talked about the amplifying power of Copaiba. He said that Copaiba plus Peace and Calming is a slumber party...that's the one I remember. Copaiba amplifies the effect of any essential oil.
Copaiba with:Peppermint = X 4Cypress = X 5Thieves = X 3Peace & Calming =
Slumber Partyt! =......more copaiba--sleep application..............
I have to share my experience with Peace & Calming Essential Oil Blend and Copaiba Essential Oil. I barely slept Sunday and Monday nights and I was mentally exhausted from dealing with my aunt's stroke, her neurologist, orthopedic and pain management doctors, and her children who were doing absolutely nothing but letting Vicki take care of it because get this, they have to work. Nobody seems to remember that Vicki has a job and unlike their jobs where they can take leave and get paid, Vicki does contract work so if she's not working, she's not getting paid.Peace and Calming has never worked for me as well as it has for most users but I do love the smell. My stress must have been so great that my trusty nutmeg and ledum weren't helping get the good night's sleep that it normally does so on Tuesday, after reading about the slumber party mixture, I applied a drop of P&C to each wrist and rubbed the wrist to the inside of the opposite elbow. The I applied a drop of Copaiba to each wrist and did the same thing. In about 10 minutes, I felt chest muscles relax. Within 30 minutes I woke myself up snoring. I slept a solid 6 hours and woke up refreshed at 2:30 am Wednesday. I couldn't seem to get sleepy last night (Wednesday) so around 11:00 pm, I applied the P&C and Copaiba and again, I was soon fast asleep and slept another 6 hours waking up refreshed this morning
