My experience:

In August I began treating a sebasteous cycst on one of my poodle girls with Certified Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil.  I placed the lavender oil on the cyst twice a daily.  The oil dried the sebum in the cyst.  It is now late December and the cyst has not returned.  What a great way to heal these little pesky cysts.
