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.


My friend had severe body trauma, with many of the bones on her right side crushed. Among other remedies, surgery repaired her shoulder and arm with plates and screws.

Fortunately she regained some movement in her right hand but, a little over 2 months later, the back of her right hand was still numb. She had no feeling perception. The medical doctors expressed that there might be radial nerve damage.

She applied a few drops of Lemongrass oil to that area 3 days in a row. On the 4th morning, she called me to tell me that it "hurts" when she pushed her fingernail into that skin.

Let that sink in for a minute. Two months of feeling nothing then, 3 days after applying Lemongrass, she is experiencing pain from a fingernail applied to the formerly numb area. That's great progress in restoring sensitivity!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: nerve-pain,numbness-/-tingling-(Neuropathy) — "The patient was successfully treated with topical peppermint oil [for postherpetic neuralgia, a complication of shingles].... The authors believe this is the first evidence of peppermint oil (or menthol) having a strong analgesic effect on neuropathic pain."Link
2.Associated topics: nervous-system,nerve-pain,numbness-/-tingling-(Neuropathy) — "Ameliorative effects of Ocimum sanctum [holy basil] in sciatic nerve transection-induced neuropathy...."Link
3.Associated topics: nervous-system — "Aromatherapy... [consisting of] a blend of oils of lemon (Citrus limonum), lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), and ylang ylang (Cananga odorata)... is effective in lowering systolic blood pressure and sympathetic nerve system activity... of heart rate variability."Link
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
5.Associated topics: nervous-system — "[N]utraceuticals derived from such spices as turmeric, red pepper, black pepper, licorice, clove, ginger, garlic, coriander, and cinnamon target inflammatory pathways, and thereby may prevent neurodegenerative diseases."Link
