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 granddaughter got her foot stuck in a fold down couch and really did a job on it. Not only was she traumatized but when I saw the foot, it made me very scared. It was starting to swell and there was a very angry looking red mark on both sides of the foot. There was also an indentation which, when I saw it, I thought it to be crushed or broken for sure.

I got the oils out right away and applied Lavender oil and the PanAway blend. I held her for a moment to comfort her and when I looked back at the foot the swelling was gone and that awful red mark was just a little pink mark. I asked her if it hurt anymore. She said no, and tried standing on it. Wow, it didn't bother her at all! In fact we went down to the beach and played for about an hour.

That night I put more oils on and, in the morning, I made the blend up for bruising that is in the essential oils reference book. We were likely able to prevent any bruising or pain, and she hasn't had any trouble playing and jumping around. Also there has been no swelling.

I don't know what we would do without the oils. I will never be without them. You really have to see them in action to believe what they can do.

Supporting Scientific Study
swelling-/-swollen-/-puffy - "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
