I just had a really neat oil experience with my TMJ. I am a singer, I have had TMJ struggles since high school. About a month ago, it got SO bad that I could not lie my cheek on a PILLOW, it hurt SO bad!

I went to my chiropractor, and it took her about half an hour of massage to get the muscle relaxed enough to adjust, then she aligned my jaw. THAT felt better, but I still hurt a LOT! So, we muscle tested my oils. I had been using Balsam, Relieve It, PanAway and Peppermint. NONE of them had alleviated the PAIN! BUT, GOLDENROD oil came up as the oil I needed to be using?? I was BAFFLED, but came home and put three drops of Goldenrod oil on my jaw muscle twice a day.

After TWO applications, the pain was at about 20% of what it had been! So, I got curious, and looked up Goldenrod in my essential oil books. It is listed as an ANTI-inflammatory oil! That is why it worked so well!

Just thought I'd share!
