Note: 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. 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.
My husband suffered from carpal tunnel for several years as a result of his job (drywall) and lifting weights. When I started using essential oils in 2014, I had my husband start using a drop or two of Basil on his wrists every day, to see if that would alleviate the pain of carpal tunnel.
Within a month, his pain was gone and he was able to stop taking the prescription Meloxicam (used to help with the carpal tunnel previously). At present, he still doesn’t have any carpal tunnel pain even though he’s not in the habit of using Basil on his wrists at this time.

|3.||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|
