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.


About a year ago when I was 60 I broke my wrist (first time ever with a broken bone). From the beginning and including just before casting, I began to douse the area with therapeutic grade essential oils like Helichrysum and Wintergreen for pain, Lemongrass for circulation, plus a sample I had gotten from a friend of a new oil from Ecuador called Palo Santo we'd heard was excellent for bones.

It is closely related to Frankincense and comes from the same botanical family (Burseraceae) as Frankincense, although it is found in South America rather than the Middle East. It’s botanical name is bursera graveolens.

I dripped a few drops of each of all these oils down the cast every day, and in only three weeks, the cast came off. I never had any itching or odor or pain,and my skin stayed in great condition. The doctor wasn't convinced of the oils connection, but his assistant said she had never seen bones knit so quickly, especially in a 60 year old woman!

I also had a small ganglion cyst on that same wrist, plus a little arthritis, plus a "trigger thumb" (repetitive motion condition) - all of which were also gone when the cast came off and have not returned!

Over time of using the oils on wrists, ankles, and taking internally (therapeutic grade oils only), I am pleased to say I have no problems with arthritis anywhere.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: bone-regeneration,bones-/-osteo — "Common herbs, essential oils, and monoterpenes potently modulate bone metabolism.... we investigated several common herbs rich in essential oils (sage, rosemary, and thyme) and essential oils extracted from these herbs and other plants (oils of sage, rosemary, juniper, pine, dwarf pine, turpentine, and eucalyptus) as well as their monoterpene components (thujone, eucalyptol, camphor, borneol, thymol, alpha-pinene, beta-pinene, bornylacetate as well as menthol) and found that they inhibit bone resorption.... Our study demonstrates for the first time that essential oils and monoterpenes are efficient inhibitors of bone resorption...."Link
2.Associated topics: bone-regeneration,bones-/-osteo — "Results of bone density, bone mineral content, bone tensile strength and histological analysis also showed similar trend of results, which supported initial observations of this study. It is proposed that hydroalcoholic extract of dried clove buds has bone-preserving efficacy against hypogonadal [hormonally deficient] osteoporosis."Link
3.Associated topics: arthritis — "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
4.Associated topics: arthritis — "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
