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.

In October 2004 I was walking across a major street in Denver during rush hour. Although I was doing all the right things, just like Mom taught me, I still was hit by a car. When I became aware of my surroundings again I was sitting on the street facing the car's front bumper. After all the emergency people left a friend drove me home.

My friend warned me that I would be really stiff and sore in the morning. I immediately started combining the PanAway oil blend and Ortho Ease Massage Oil and every 2-3 hours. I completely covered myself with this mix.

I finally was able to sleep for a couple of hours just before dawn the next morning and when I awoke I was able to move without major discomfort.

For many days following the accident I continued to apply the oils every few hours. I never did use any typical muscle relaxants or pain pills.

Since then I've continued to use this oil combination for the persistent soft-tissue pain (more than 2 years later) that occasionally wakes me at night.

As a result of the accident I've also had many therapeutic massages using these oils. The massages have been much more helpful when these oils are used than massages without the Young Living products.

I'm very thankful that these products were already in my home, ready to use.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: muscle-pain — "We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... 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
4.Associated topics: muscles — "In nine studies, Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) has shown effectiveness for arteriosclerosis, autism, Bells palsy, chemotherapy-induced toxicity, degenerative disc disease, detox, muscle wasting, muscular dystrophy, neuroblastoma, neuroprotection, oxidative stress, and spinal stenosis."Link
