Peppermint Essential Oil

I have a mild case of sebaceous hyperplasia, which in recent months has gotten a little worse. It's primarily been on the sides if my cheeks and forehead and recently the bumps got larger. I have about 50 of them. I've been panicked over what to do and scheduled an appt for the smooth beam laser. I'm supposed to go and have the laser done tomorrow. However, on Saturday I read a post on this site on peppermint oil and decided to try it. I dabbed it on all of the spots...a slight burning sensation for a few minutes but tolerable. I've been putting it on twice a day and diluted it a little with water and added apple cider vinegar (another amazing skin product for inflammation). Well, I am blown away!! By Sunday morning they reduced by half and now 48 hours later many are barely visible. My ski. Is!! I am so excited!! I'm thinking I'll cancel my laser appt. I have a few stubborn larger bumps but think I'll wait a week to see how they respond. This is an amazing discovery!! I even had several compliments today on how beautiful my skin looks today.
