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.

My precious mother is 79 years old. She has served most of her life as a minister and missionary, giving her absolute all to the point of literally wearing out her shoulders. Due to a brainstem stroke approximately 10 years ago, she has had to use a walker/wheelchair for mobility.

The orthopedic doctor said that her left shoulder socket area is completely worn away and needs to be replaced; however, due to the use of a walker to ambulate, she cannot have replacement surgery. My mother's other shoulder has a rotator cuff injury due to overuse; however, once again, she is not a candidate for shoulder surgery because of the walker use to ambulate.

The doctors are not able to do much, other than give injections in her shoulder every 3 months. After the pain from each injection goes away after a day, it does bring relief for approximately 3-5 days.

In trying to remove all chemicals from her body, I started researching and trying different essential oils. I applied the Deep Relief Roll-On, and she said the pain was gone in just a short time -- like it has never been relieved before! In fact, my mother woke me up early one morning to come put some more of "that stuff" on her shoulder, as it took the pain away almost immediately.

We have gone through many bottles and wish we could order in a vat size so I could just dip my mother's whole body in it to bring her relief and more joy. We are thankful that we have found something that works and that is promoting healing in her body. With the removal of the pain, other issues are coming in to balance now, and she is able to do more.

My mother tells everyone who has aches and pains about the Deep Relief Roll-On and what relief it has given her. I am thankful and praising God for bringing us something to help her gain back at least some of her physical ability and to be able to think clearer with the pain gone.

As my precious mother says, "Deep Relief... it's not just a name on the bottle. It's the real deal!"

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: bones-/-osteo — "Common herbs, essential oils, and monoterpenes potently modulate bone metabolism.... we investigated several common herbs rich in essential oils (sage, rosemary, and thyme) and essential oils extracted from these herbs and other plants (oils of sage, rosemary, juniper, pine, dwarf pine, turpentine, and eucalyptus) as well as their monoterpene components (thujone, eucalyptol, camphor, borneol, thymol, alpha-pinene, beta-pinene, bornylacetate as well as menthol) and found that they inhibit bone resorption.... Our study demonstrates for the first time that essential oils and monoterpenes are efficient inhibitors of bone resorption...."Link
2.Associated topics: bones-/-osteo — "Results of bone density, bone mineral content, bone tensile strength and histological analysis also showed similar trend of results, which supported initial observations of this study. It is proposed that hydroalcoholic extract of dried clove buds has bone-preserving efficacy against hypogonadal [hormonally deficient] osteoporosis."Link
3.Associated topics: joints,arthritis — "Ruxiang (Gummi olibanum), the dried gum resin of Boswellia carterii (BC) [frankincense], has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate pain and inflammation for thousands of years.... The data show that BC extract has significant anti-arthritic and anti-inflammation effects and suggest that these effects may be mediated via the suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines."Link
4.Associated topics: joints,arthritis — "We have demonstrated that Boswellia frereana [frankincense] prevents collagen degradation, and inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory mediators and MMPs. Due to its efficacy we propose that B. frereana should be examined further as a potential therapeutic agent for treating inflammatory symptoms associated with arthritis."Link
5.Associated topics: joints — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
6.Associated topics: anti-inflamatory — "...its flowers and leaves are the most used parts in the treatment of health disorders such as allergies, colds, cough, skin, liver and gallbladder disorders, inflammation, infections and sleeplessness... In vitro studies characterized Helichrysum as an antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory agent. Its flavonoids and terpenes were effective against bacteria (e.g. Staphylococcus aureus), its acetophenones, phloroglucinols and terpenoids displayed antifungal action against Candida albicans and its flavonoids and phloroglucinols inhibited HSV and HIV, respectively.... Regarding Helichrysum italicum in vivo activity, the highlight goes to ...the anti-inflammatory properties exhibited by its flavonoids, acetophenones and phloroglucinols, as seen in animal models."Link
