I bought Palo Santo because I have plantars fasciitis in my foot. The Dr. was talking about give me a steroid shot in my foot. The pain was so bad that I was having a problem walking and I'm only 42 years old. It was embarassing to be limping all the time.

I started applying the oil, at first about once every hours. It would help but the pain would come back. After about a week I was using the oil once every 4 to 6 hours and then once in the morning and once in the evening. Now after 6 weeks I use it only occasionally.

My mother in law has been in serious pain with her lower back. The Dr. was talking about doing surgery. It was sad to see her in so much pain. One Sunday morning, my father in law asked the church to gather around and pray for her. While we were praying, I felt impressed to give her my bottle of Palo Santo. She began using it at the same time that she was using an inversion table. She talked about how well the table was helping, but never mentioned the oil. She stopped using the oil and kept using the table. The pain began to get worse.

She started on the oil again and I have now ordered her a bottle. She cried while telling me what a miracle it has been for her. She isn't completely well yet, but it's only been a month. She gets out and walks again and we thought we were going to have to get her a wheel chair. Praise God for His oils He has provided.
