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.

Two days ago my husband had an operation. The doctors removed a massive screw from above his knee. This kept a rod in place in his femur after his accident, going back nearly 20 years. They had difficulty finding the screw as per notes; what that really means we are not sure of.

However, after the operation his knee was swollen and painful. He could still walk on it though. The protocol we used around the covered wound and swelling was the to apply a few drops, in this order, of the following oils neat: Clove, Wintergreen, Lemongrass, Lavender, Peppermint and Cypress. We used these oils 4-6 times a day.

By next day evening the swelling was reduced, however it was still very painful.

Then a wonderful friend helped me out with the Deep Relief and Copaiba oils. The protocol changed to the following: A few drops of Deep Relief, Copaiba, Lavender, Wintergreen, Lemongrass, Peppermint, and Cypress.

We started with this altered protocol the first evening after the operation. The following morning the swelling was gone. No more pain and my husband said it felt a little itchy inside. Yay! We shall keep up with this protocol for few more days no doubt.

May you be blessed with abundant total health!

1.Associated topics: surgery-(Post-operative-recovery) — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
