Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I have had a lipoma on my back for over 4 years that has continued to grow and had started causing a strange sensation. It felt like it was pressing on a nerve and radiating throughout my back.

In July I decided to have it looked at. It measured 10x7 centimeters. Because of it's size, it was going to require an outpatient surgery and me to be put to sleep. I have lost enough brain cells and really didn't like the idea of being put to sleep again.

PLUS, the cost of outpatient surgery just was not feasible at that point. I was supposed to schedule the surgery for October. Instead, in September I decided to diligently try my oils.

I combined 7.5 ml of the Citrus Fresh oil blend and 2.5 ml of Ledum in a roller bottle. I applied the blend at a minimum of twice per day after my shower and changing into my pajamas.

Yesterday, I returned to the doctor just for the documentation! I already knew the size had reduced, the hardness had softened and I was no longer receiving the radiating sensation on my back. Drum roll just 3 months time it shrunk down to 7x6 centimeters!

The doctor was having difficulty defining the outer edge of the lipoma this time. She was totally amazed at how it had shrunk and I no longer was having pain associated with it. She said to keep it up!

My goal is to have it totally gone and I will update this testimonial accordingly.

4.Associated topics: nerve-pain — "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
