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 been experiencing muscle pain and weakness in my right arm. Likely due to playing an instrument in our church worship group. I tried many different things -- heat, cold, OTC pain meds, rest and it got worse. I couldn't sleep at night because of the pain.

A friend gave me two pill pain relievers, but they didn't help much. Over time, the pain extended all the way into my back at the spine.

I read online where Birch oil was made for sore muscles and ordered some on Amazon. When it arrived I opened the bottle and rubbed it in (neat, not diluted) on my lower arm muscle near the elbow. Within 30 seconds the muscle pain was diminished about 85%. I thought I must be imagining things. I tried another spot, and it did the same thing. The feeling lasted at least three hours.

So I put about 20 drops of Birch and 15 drops of Lavender with some Aloe Vera in a roller bottle, and began using it.

I took this roller bottle to church and tried it on a man who had had surgery on a tendon in his lower arm. He said it was always sore and itchy -- many years after the surgery. I rubbed some on him, and told him to tell me what he thought. We both went our separate ways, but an hour later, he said: "This stuff is AMAZING", it really works. (I gave him the roller bottle to keep, and told him my preferred brand).

I have also been doing some stretching exercises on my arms, which seem to be helping quite a bit. The pain is much lessened.

Birch oil smells just like root beer (it's a very strong smell), but if you don't mind that, then you too can get muscle relief!

Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
2.Associated topics: muscle-pain,muscles — "[T]he effect of essential oils on skeletal and smooth muscle...: The first type of effect on skeletal muscle involved a contracture and inhibition of the twitch response to nerve stimulation shown by a sample of clary sage, dill, fennel, frankincense, and nutmeg; ...lavender reduced the twitch response alone."Link
3.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
