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.

One day the week before Thanksgiving 2007 I woke up to find my wrist in terrible pain. I hadn't done anything the day before, so I was sure that I had just over-extended the muscle. I felt sure it would go away in a few days. This was not the case.

I had heard about essential oils and even had friends using Young Living, but I wanted to get something less expensive so I researched and went to the local health food store and bought the oils.

I started using them with very little change. I bought a brace, went to my local acupuncturist with some relief, but still not gone. He did not x-ray.

After the 1st of the year, I decided to go to my Dr. and she did not x-ray, but explained that by the symptoms I described, I had tenosynovitis. Basically, it is an inflamed tendon encased in the synovium tissue. She also stated that it could go away quite quickly if I just did nothing, otherwise, it could take as little as 6 weeks or as much as 2 years.

Of course, it was my right hand and I'm right handed, I work part-time and I have children at home still, so me doing nothing was just not an option.
I lived with it for almost 2 months and then decided that I would use the Young Living oils.

I invested in PanAway and put 2-3 drops 3 times a day along with wearing my brace. Within 2 weeks, I was able to remove the brace during the day and wear it only at night. By the end of one month, I could completely leave the brace off.

Every once in a while I get little twinges, probably from sleeping wrong, but I just put the PanAway on it; or sometimes I now use the new roll-on "Deep Relief" and my pain goes away.

I'm still learning about the many uses of Young Living Essential Oils and their benefits, but as far as I'm concerned, they are a great benefit for any and all and well worth the extra expense.
