Warning: 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 grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I was using a weed trimmer and began cutting down a thick clump of high weeds. Suddenly the trimmer swung out of control and hit my left ankle, leaving eleven deep lacerations in the seconds it took to turn the trimmer off. The ankle swelled up immediately to three times its size. I limped into the house, sat down on the floor, and applied PanAway and Helichrysum every ten or fifteen minutes at first, covered it with an ice pack, and prayed over the injury. An hour into this, I was only applying one or the other oil about every thirty minutes, and following with the ice pack. After about three hours, the swelling was down, and my ankle area felt better. I went back outside and finished the job.

It took some time for my ankle to heal completely. Even then, the area was especially sensitive when touching anything. So I applied Trauma Life morning and evening for two weeks, after which my ankle has been feeling normal.
