Rocky Mountain Oils is the least expensive, the company that originated all the essential oils movement, and has all the certifications. Many people buy from Doterra or Young Living, and they have good quality, but are MLN's and so the products cost more. Those are three I can recommend.

Amen, Doc. One thing I tried really shocked me. Had really bad nail fungus. My doc put me on some kind of ointment. Used it for months (expensive too) but nothing. One day I read to try oregano oil. Used it one day and my toenails are completely clear. After almost fours years of this, it was a miracle cure. Truly.

I’ll have to try the peppermint with my wife (I rarely get headaches and when I do, it’s generally dehydration).

Great post!

Oregano? I will have to try that on my toe.

I do use oregano oil on those scaly spots I get from sun damage and it really helps. The most dramatic this is that I had some black crusty moles, those kind you get as you age, and my wife put oregano essential oil on them and they all came off!

Someone asked if essential oils are good for moisturizing the skin for the feet and also for the scalp. Any ideas on this?

She put that on me for an average of two weeks (some shorter) and they came off. I also had some tiny hard knots on my skin from sun damage and they came off, too.

As I've got older heh heh, I don't get migraines as bad as I used to.Other health problems have taken over? Not really sure why migraines have lessened ??
When I feel a migraine coming on, I take 2 to 4 soluble aspirin in a glass of water and just about always I feel OK in about a half hour.
I also rub/roll a Migrastick on my forehead and temple areas.Has Peppermint Oil and Lavender Oil in it. And it smells good!!

peppermint oil also may have some digestive benefits. Glad it's helping you. Different people have different sensitivity to these oils so what might be great for one person might be useless for one and overwhelming for another. Interesting, how much the biochemistry and default tolerances can differ.
