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 neuropathy. I was tripping and falling. I was literally crawling up the stairs to bed at night. Then I was introduced to essential oils by a good friend of mine. The following is what I discovered that helped me to keep my symptoms under control:

I applied Peppermint oil straight on feet for two and a half months and realized I was not having the pain as I had before. I used about two bottles of the oil in this time. I had been on medication for this and after finding so much relief decided to wean myself off of it. I had been using the medication for over 8 years and I think it took me almost a year to completely wean off. I do not recommend weaning without medical help especially on certain medications. Fortunately I had that help.

Several others have tried the same as I have and with good results. I have developed a cream now using different oils that I use when I have neuropathy flare ups.

Without these wonderful oils, I do believe I would be in a wheelchair today as my neurologist had told me that is where I was heading.

I was able to retire from my job at 62 and enjoy being pain free!

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
