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 have been an avid tennis player for over 60 years and have finally succumbed to plantar fasciitis, which is a painful inflammation of the fascia running from the heel to the toes on the bottoms of the feet. I have gotten to the point that I cannot even walk anymore, and so I have had to stop playing tennis for over one month now.

I finally went to the doctor. At first he helped me with a cortisone shot (which I normally would never do), but it only helped for the short term.

Then I decided to start treating myself with therapeutic-grade essential oils. I remembered that Peppermint, Wintergreen, and Lemongrass were all good for nerve pain, so I started applying them topically. Additionally, I have found that Lavender essential oil helps to relax the nerves.

I have definitely improved 85% and will continue with the oils with the goal of getting back onto the tennis courts. I will continue doing this protocol until I am completely well again.

I would definitely recommend to others to use essential oils as much as possible, especially before bedtime.
