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 elderly father has gout in his ankles, and when it flares up his ankle joints get feverish and swollen.

Once this would happen, we would have to call his rheumatologist and get him on a 20-day course of steroids ASAP that would of course have side effects. Then it would repeat again after a month of being off the drugs.

This has been a vicious cycle that has not done any good for my father at all.

He was at my home during Thanksgiving for a visit when he had a flareup. So I looked up gout and essential oils and decided to try what my book suggested.

I put Lemon and Frankincense essential oils on his ankle. By morning, the swelling was gone, and there was no more discomfort. My dad has now been applying those two oils once daily and has not had a problem in over five months!
