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.

I made a homemade cream with essential oils using the following ingredients:

1/4 cup coconut oil
10 drops PanAway
10 drops Valor
10 drops Peppermint

I originally made it to help with sore muscles. However, I have been able to use it for much more and have had great results with it!

I had the flu last weekend and had horrible body aches, and this cream was a lifesaver for me! I applied it 3 to 4 times a day, massaging it into sore areas, and I noticed results within a few minutes.

I have been using it to help with tendinitis in my wrist as well, massaging it into my wrist twice a day or as symptoms occur. I notice results within a few minutes and am able to go about my day normally.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1."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
2."[T]he effect of essential oils on skeletal and smooth muscle...: The first type of effect on skeletal muscle involved a contracture and inhibition of the twitch response to nerve stimulation shown by a sample of clary sage, dill, fennel, frankincense, and nutmeg; ...lavender reduced the twitch response alone."Link
3."We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
