I went to my doctor to see about this weird cyst on my arm.
He called it a sebaceous cyst.
He says it is harmless, but is very unlikely to go away on its own.
They usually grow rapidly and become infected.
He wanted to create an eye-shaped incision and remove the cyst by hand,
using only local anesthetic.
That doesn't sound like my idea of a good time,
so I asked him if I could try oils for a few weeks.
I promised I would come back to him if it didn't go away.
He tolerates my use of essential oils
because he knows I will use western medicine too,
so he agreed.
I made up a roller bottle with this mixture of my Young Living oils:
20 drops frankincense
20 drops tea tree oil
20 drops of copaiba
no carrier oil

I keep the roller ball I made in my pocket or purse,
and apply it on the cyst almost constantly.
Every time I see the oil dry, I reapply.
There's been a lot of improvement in just 24 hours.
I think it's smaller,
and it's definitely less painful and hot to the touch.

It's showing so much improvement today!
It's much less hard, and not painful at all.

I tried to get a really good picture of it today
to show the dramatic improvement in only 5 days!
I know I still have friends who think my essential oils are voodoo,
or at least a placebo effect.
There's no placebo affect here, friends.
The proof is in the pictures.
