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 wife Peggy has been disabled for over ten years with many different symptoms, but recently diagnosed with MS. At times, her pain was so bad she was taking hydrocodone (generic vicoden) twice daily. This situation went on for many years.

Looking for answers, I read a testimonial here about essential oils providing an alternative approach. After experimenting, we found that a few drops on her feet of any of Young Living products, like PanAway, Relieve It, Valor, Peppermint and other oils brings relief in less than 20 minutes.

It has allowed her to significantly reduce her dependency on these pain medications.

While she still is suffering the effects of MS, her quality of life has tremendously increased.

1.Associated topics: nerve-damage,nerve-pain — "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

3.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
