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 tendons, especially those in my hands, have needed a health boost for almost 17 years. For the most part, I have just put up with the discomfort and have tried to accept it as is.

Then, on the very day that I received my Lemongrass essential oil in the mail, I decided to try some on my legs for vein health. But I experienced an exciting side effect: I felt instant relief in the hand in which I had placed the drop of essential oil!

Now anytime I feel like the tendons in my hand or anywhere else need it, I put a drop or two of Lemongrass essential oil on the area and massage it in. And it feels so good afterwards!

I love that God has given us the tools to live a healthier, more enjoyable life.

2."The patient was successfully treated with topical peppermint oil [for postherpetic neuralgia, a complication of shingles].... The authors believe this is the first evidence of peppermint oil (or menthol) having a strong analgesic effect on neuropathic pain."Link
3."Topical high-concentration L-menthol is the only established human experimental pain model to study mechanisms underlying cold hyperalgesia. We aimed at investigating the combinatorial effect of cold stimuli and topical L-menthol on cold pain and secondary mechanical hyperalgesia. Cold detection threshold and cold pain threshold (CPT) increased after L-menthol and remained high after the cold rekindling cycles.... Skin blood flow increased after L-menthol and stayed stable after cold cycles. Repeated application of cold on skin treated by L-menthol facilitated and prolonged L-menthol-induced cold pain and hyperalgesia."Link
