Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

My husband is a contractor and was opening up circular holes in the wall to install new electrical lines. He was using a large drill bit shaped like a circle -- with teeth edges as a saw -- to cut out and make perfectly sized circles in the drywall.

The blade of the saw was dull, so my husband's hand pulling the trigger got stuck after the saw stopped working and lodged into the wall. The drill tried to keep turning, but the circular bit was stuck. Yikes!

Needless to say, my husband sprained his wrist badly. He could not even use his right hand to turn on the ignition in his truck. Very painful!

After 3 days of the following protocol, my husband was able to work again with his hands:

1. Used 3 BLM tablets 2 times per day.
2. Morning and night topically applied Lemongrass and Marjoram essential oils.

My husband liked to use an ace bandage day and night on top of the essential oils to keep the oils against the skin longer and to stabilize his hand. He kept this up for 2 weeks to continue healing.

After skipping a day of this regimen, my husband noticed that the pain would come back; so several weeks were needed on this protocol for complete healing.

It was amazing how my husband progressed so fast to feel more function in using his hand again!
