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 have been diagnosed with Keinbock's disease. It is necrosis of the lunate bone in the wrist. The bone is deprived of blood flow and as a result the bone begins to die, and then shrink. When this happens, other bones in the wrist begin to shift causing extreme pain in that area.

If left untreated or diagnosed too late, it can result in severe arthritis and deformity. If caught early enough, they usually fuse the bone, but still you are left with almost no mobility in that wrist.

Fortunately, I was diagnosed when the symptoms first started to appear. I basically was told to limit certain activities to help preserve the bone and not cause further damage.

It started with an acute flare up of the wrist and I could not bend or move it from side to side. I could only move my fingers!

I was put in a cast for about a month to keep it stable and hopefully allow for some blood flow to that area.

After the cast came off, I was told to be very careful! No hyperflexion of the wrist, pounding, etc.

I started to develop mild arthritis, a dull ache in that spot. And it would get really sore sometimes radiating into the rest of my hand.

I recently found out about essential oils and investigated which ones to use. I put a few drops each of Wintergreen for bone pain, Cypress for circulation and Lemongrass for ligament and tendon.

I was diagnosed with Keinbock's in 1999. And had severe pain almost everyday, especially on rainy days for the last 8 years.

I can happily say, so far, that I haven't had anymore pain in that wrist since I used the oils.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: 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: 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
