Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I have stage 4 chronic kidney disease. Consequently, I occasionally get leg cramps that are not particularly painful, but my muscles just will not release.

As soon as I flex my calves to stretch out my shins, my calves cramp up. And if I try to stretch my calves, my shins cramp up, etc. You get the picture. While this is not extraordinarily painful, it does make it difficult to sleep at night.

So I put a few drops of Peppermint and Lavender essential oils in my hands and rubbed them on my shins and calves. Within a few seconds, my legs stopped cramping altogether, and I was able to get to bed.

I am somewhat new to essential oils, so I was really excited to experience the effects firsthand!
