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.
Whenever I have back or leg discomfort I have found a great combo of four oils:
* Aroma Siez
I simply apply 2-3 drops of each oil (in that order) to my lower back, behind my knee and on my ankle. Usually within 10 minutes the discomfort has subsided or, if really bad, then it at least becomes tolerable for me.
I leaned this regimen from an experienced friend for a similar issue and it really keeps me going from month to month. I have recently utilized Aroma Siez in place of the PanAway, Deep Relief and Relive It oil blends as my new "go to" oil for discomfort.
Occasionally to drive the oils deeper I will apply a wet, warm rag on top of the oils and lay a dry towel over top to really get the oils in quick! This could also be achieved by getting into the tub for 15-20 minutes after applying the needed oils.

|4.||Associated topics: muscle-pain,muscles — "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|
