Shingles felt like the plague. Seriously. When I got it, we were on the road. I went to the doctor when I got home to try to figure out what was going on, and the diagnosis came quickly. There wasn’t much they could do for me except give a steroid shot and let it run its course. It was on my face and felt TERRIBLE!!
Armed with a place to focus, I went home and got to work. I pulled out my collection of oils and had my husband give me a makeshift Raindrop massage. These oils, including Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Cypress, Wintergreen, Marjoram, Aroma Siez, and Peppermint. He literally just dripped the oils down my back, one at a time, and started rubbing them in.
By the next morning, I could tell that the virus was starting to abate. Chris did the Raindrop on me one or two more times over the next two days, and then I was fully on the road to recovery.
The nerve pain associated with Shingles is no joke. I used Ravintsara for the blisters and the nerve pain. I’m so happy to report that after the initial outbreak, the nerve pain has been few and far between.
