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.

When my son was just a few months old, hardly old enough to sit up alone, he toppled back, but in the process managed to pin his arm directly behind him. Meaning, instead of his arm being directly in front of his chest, along the breast line (which would be okay), it was directly BEHIND him, in that horizontal position! Total new mommy panic.

The first thing I thought of was "Chiropractor in a Bottle", which the Valor Blend is tenderly known as among oilers.

I used the Valor blend, a few drops in my hands (okay I admit many drops!) And held my hands around his shoulder. I did not attempt to move his shoulder in any way, as my intention was to do Quantum Touch, a form of energy work.

He sat in the lap of my mother, his grandmother. To our utter amazement, within the first 5-20 seconds of my holding this oil around his shoulder we heard 4 distinct pops in a row, then a few seconds later another pop.


I did a visual and palpated his shoulder, and sure enough! It was in!

I continued to use Frankincense and Lavender oil, along with the PanAway oil blend and Lemongrass. The Frankincense is always a good choice, the Lavender to help with all the tissues, the PanAway for the pain, and the Lemongrass for the tendons and soft tissue.

No swelling or bruising ever occurred. He cried initially, and definitely was fine after the popping. We took him to the chiropractor and he said his shoulder was just a little bit out of alignment, but fine.

Thanks Gary Young for making the Valor oil blend!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: joints — "Ruxiang (Gummi olibanum), the dried gum resin of Boswellia carterii (BC) [frankincense], has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate pain and inflammation for thousands of years.... The data show that BC extract has significant anti-arthritic and anti-inflammation effects and suggest that these effects may be mediated via the suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines."Link
2.Associated topics: joints — "We have demonstrated that Boswellia frereana [frankincense] prevents collagen degradation, and inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory mediators and MMPs. Due to its efficacy we propose that B. frereana should be examined further as a potential therapeutic agent for treating inflammatory symptoms associated with arthritis."Link
3.Associated topics: joints — "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
