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.
While I was on vacation visiting my daughter and playing with my four grandchildren, my daughter would have me drink 2 ounces of NingXia Red every day. I was able to keep up with the kids and help my daughter with the housework even though I have had rheumatoid arthritis (RA) for 26 years.
I did not think much of it... but then I got home. After a week without NingXia Red, I knew that I had to order the Premium Starter Kit and a 2-pack of NingXia Red.
Since then I have had the energy to keep my house clean. We are rural folks, so I have been very busy helping my husband outside too. We transplanted eight trees yesterday, and I dug as much as my sweet husband did.
I no longer have to give up and go sit down because I am hurting or because I am tired. I no longer hurt all of the time, and I am no longer stiff. It does not hurt to walk, and I am able to do everything that I want to do.
Within the second week of starting NingXia Red, I was able to go out in the garden, sit on bent knees, and plant four rows. I have not been able to do this for 26 years! It has been raining all week, and I have literally danced in the rain... no kidding.
In less than a month, I have been able to drop one milligram of prednisone. That may sound small, but I have been trying to drop prednisone even this much for several years. I have no doubt that my immune system is greatly improved because of NingXia Red, and I know that the inflammation is under control.
People who know me are amazed at the improvement that I have had. I used to be the biggest skeptic, as I used to work in healthcare. I really did not even believe that essential oils could work!
I love that I am not using drugs that will go through my liver. I know that I have a fatty liver, and my cholesterol is very high because of damage from all of the harsh drugs that I have had to take over the years. Fortunately, I do not take ibuprofen anymore. My liver is getting a rest.
I have one stubborn thumb that hurts still sometimes. I use Wintergreen essential oil on it, and the discomfort goes away for hours. I am also using Lavender and Cedarwood essential oils to improve my sleep, and I have been shrinking warts with Lemon essential oil.
I hope that others can enjoy the benefits that I have enjoyed from these products.

|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.||"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|
|3.||"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|
