Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions.

When I started using oils, my husband was supportive, but did not really like most of the smells. One night he was playing basketball and came down really hard on his ankle. It was getting worse by the time he got home. I was still pretty new to using oils. I got out my essential oil reference book and read about what to do.

He laid down on the bed. I propped his foot up on a pillow. While he slept off and on, I applied Peppermint, Relieve It and PanAway about every thirty minutes to an hour all night long along with an ice pack.

In the morning there was no swelling and he could walk. This made a believer out of him about the power of the oils. He knew there was no way he should have been able to walk the next morning. He knew how hard he had come down on his ankle. He put on his shoes, went outside and worked in the yard all day. He thanked me for knowing what to do to help him. I was grateful that I could help.
