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.

I recently had a nagging pain in my hip area, believing it was some form of osteoarthritis.

It was the kind of pain that you could feel every time you got out of the car and started walking. I have difficulty with movement in general.

My symptoms also include inflammation, stiffness and decreased range of motion.

I tried applying several drops of Palo Santo to the area with Grapefruit oil as a cover up for the scent (as Palo Santo is a bit strong).

After about a month I noticed it was improving. Today I've ceased applying the oils with the hope its been removed forever.

We shall see. Just wanted to add this as others have talked about the successes with Palo Santo and pain.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: osteoarthritis,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
2.Associated topics: osteoarthritis,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
