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 knee has bothered me for 20 years, and I am only 47 years old! If I were to sit with it bent for too long, like at a movie or on an airplane, it would begin to ache so much that I would have to extend it and pop it. It would literally make a cracking sound.

My mom applied some PanAway essential oil blend around my kneecap the night before I was to fly on an airplane and again the next morning. I did not pay any attention really because I did not have any hope that it would work.

It was the day after the trip that I realized that I had traveled in complete comfort for hours without ever having to get out of my seat to pop my knee!

Now I take Sulfurzyme daily (only two capsules a day does it for me) because my mom said that it helps with her arthritic hip. I saw the results by the next day. I still like PanAway too but do not want to use it all up if I can take Sulfurzyme as a preventive.

If I miss a day of the Sulfurzyme, my angry knee comes back within two days. Otherwise, I have two happy knees and finally feel confident about getting older.

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."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
