Consult an ophthalmologist (eye doctor) immediately if such outbreaks occur.

(layer in order): Oregano, mountain savory, and thyme (warm pack for 30 minutes between each oil application).

Here are a few stories from customers about Shingles
I purchased two bottles for my mom…she took 5 drops three times per day for 21
days, relief from pain within 48 hours…no further occurrences after she
finished the 21 days….. a friend of hers also had shingles…did not like he
taste of burping the oil.
Pain and discomfort vs. taste for 21 days…my choice
would be no pain and the end of the shingles…she stopped after 5 days…and
suffered for another 3 months…then had reoccurrences….interesting choice.
If the taste is unpleasant…chase with lemon oil (she did put the Ravensara
into capsules) the friends pain level was at a 10 on a scale of 1-10 at
the beginning and went down to a 4 in 4 days.

At the YL Regional Meeting in the S.F. Bay Area, Merilee Tolen, who was presenting,
said that she had success with shingles by taking 7 drops of Ravensara in a capsule,
morning and evening. She said all shingles symptoms were gone in 2 day, and she
continued to take the oils for two additional weeks.
I had a personal experience with shingles last year.
I looked up in the EDR along with the Alternative Medical Guide by
Burton-Goldberg and the indicated oil for shingles was Ravensara
I made gel caps twice a day with 7 drops each of Ravensara and took
these internally. My pain went away that first day. I decided to take this
for 21 days, a typical active stage of a virus.
One day about a week into the course I forgot my morning capsule - and
I decided not to take the evening cap - questioning if this was really
working - and sure enough, my pain and symptoms came back. I resumed
the capsules and the pain went away. I did do this for a course of 21 days,
and after that I was fine. I did not feel the need for topical application
because I was having so much success with this.

I have four friends with Shingles and unequivocally the answer has been equal parts
of Thieves and Ravensara in a capsule every few hours. For three of them, it took
less than a day for relief and the fourth took 48 hours (she is a bit more toxic than the others!)

For shingles Oregano, seven
drops in capsule two times a day for 21 days.
One of my distributor's father got shingles while in the hospital for a stroke. He
went on a number of medications and started going down hill fast.
His son called me to ask my advice. I told them that I would use
for the sores. His daughter, who is a nurse, applied the Melrose and
couldn't believe how fast his sores healed. Also his pain went away
quickly. Melrose works wonders.

MORE Shingles Testimonials What is shingles?
Shingles is an active (generally short-lived) viral infection of the central nervous system
that affects certain areas of the skin. This usually starts with fatigue, fever, chills,
and at times intestinal upset. On the third to fourth day, the affected skin area becomes
On the fourth or fifth day, small painful blisters erupt along the nerve pathway and crust over.
Normally these heal in about 5 days without further problems. One attack usually gives immunity
However, with some, particularly the elderly, pain can persist for months, even years.
What causes shingles?
The virus that causes shingles is Varicella zoster, which also causes chicken pox.
A childhood bout with chicken pox leaves some viruses dormant in sensory (skin) nerves.
If the immune system is compromised from things such as severe emotional stress, illness,
or long-term use of corticosteroids, the dormant viruses may start to infect the pathway
of the skin nerves.
