What Causes Shingles?

After recovering from chickenpox, the virus remains dormant and can be reactivated years later by stress or a low immune system. The result is shingles.

Shingles, or Herpes Zoster as it is also called, is a viral disease that attacks the nervous system and "erupts" on the skin of people that have previously suffered from chicken pox.

Shingles take the form of painful, itchy, burning blisters that form at the end of a nerve branch, often on one side of the body. They can also cause headaches, fever and stomach pain.

At this time there is no cure for shingles.

How Can Essential Oils Assist?

Essential oils can be used in conjunction with anti-viral medications to ease the symptoms and speed the healing process.

Many oils work directly to reduce pain and itching as well as calm the blisters.

Instructions

For easy application use a spritzer bottle and dilute some essential oil at about 10% with witch hazel or a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil

Here is an example using 3 of the oils listed below:
