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 mother has occasional strong leg cramps. They come on unexpectedly and do not go away on their own. She takes plenty of calcium, magnesium, and other supplements which have been known to help with muscle cramps--and she is faithful with taking them--but none of these stop the cramps from coming. It is one of those things that elderly people often deal with. In the past, the only thing she had found to calm her cramps was something called Quinine Sulfate, which took an excruciating 20 to 30 minutes to work and then gave her side effects.

One day she was in my kitchen when one of these crippling cramps came on, so we grabbed our handy essential oil reference guide and looked up "cramps." For muscle cramps there were three oil blends listed. Two had no immediate effect, but Relieve It began to calm the cramp literally within seconds. Within a minute the cramp was gone. She was absolutely amazed! We applied V-6 Mixing Oil over the Relieve It to trap the essential oils next to the skin, and the cramp did not return.

She now keeps a bottle of Relieve It with her at all times. She has had several more cramps since that day, and Relieve It has calmed her cramp within seconds every time. She is so thrilled to have something natural and side-effect free to use on those debilitating cramps! She says that many older folks struggle with leg cramps as she does, and that everyone with cramps should know about these oils!

Putting V-6 or some other pure vegetable oil over the Relieve It does seem to help keep the cramp from returning.
