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 been a patient of a rheumatologist for over 6 years. They say it takes one big infection or other incident to sometimes set it off. Mine was cellulitis in a finger when a grass burr caused an infection in my finger. My sed rate (ESR) is not super high -- but enough to cause me problems.

To get some desperate relief for my arthritis, I learned that Celebrex caused my hemorrhoids to go in overdrive, Plaquenil started affecting my eyes, I found out I am allergic to Enbrel and Humira, and finally, Xeljanz did nothing.

So I started using Frankincense and Peppermint essential oils, as well as the PanAway, Valor, and Thieves blends. This resulted in better -- but not great -- results.

I then added Copaiba oil and did see better results. However, not until I added Idaho Balsam Fir oil and the NingXia Red juice to my regimen did I really see results in diminishing my discomfort.

I am now virtually free of pain most days that I apply my concoction twice a day. At the very least, and when I am rushed, I use the "morphine bomb", which is a homemade blend using an equal portion of Frankincense, Copaiba, Idaho Balsam Fir, Valor, and Thieves oils.

Essential oils have made life good again!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: autoimmune-diseases — "DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link
2.Associated topics: allergic-reaction — "Lavender essential oil displays the stronger antioxidant activity against lipid peroxidation in a linoleic acid model system and good antibacterial activity against four rhinitis-related bacteria including staphylococcus aureus, Micrococcus ascoformans, Proteus vulgaris, and Escherichia coli."Link
3.Associated topics: autoimmune-diseases — "Immunomodulatory activity of frankincense oil: Biologically, the oil exhibited a strong immunostimulant activity (90% lymphocyte transformation) when assessed by a lymphocyte proliferation assay."Link
4.Associated topics: joints,rheumatoid-arthritis-(RA),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
5.Associated topics: joints,rheumatoid-arthritis-(RA),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
6.Associated topics: autoimmune-diseases — "Anti-inflammatory, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antimicrobial, antioxidant, carminative [flatulence] and immunomodulatory properties of caraway suggest that it might exert beneficial effects on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).... CHE and CEO [caraway essential oil] at all doses tested were effective in reducing colon tissue lesions and colitis indices and the efficacy was nearly the same when different doses of plant fractions were administered p.o. or i.p..... These data suggest that caraway fractions are both effective and possess anti-colitic activity irrespective of the dose and route of administration."Link
7.Associated topics: autoimmune-diseases — "Pycnogenol [French maritime pine bark extract] could be useful for second-line therapy to reduce the inflammatory feature of SLE [systemic lupus erythematosus]."Link
8.Associated topics: allergic-reaction — "[L]avender oil inhibits immediate-type allergic reactions [anaphylaxis] by inhibition of mast cell degranulation in-vivo and in-vitro."Link
