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.

While putting away my very large and heavy pot, it slipped out of my hand and the corner of the bottom of the pot slammed onto the top of my foot hitting the bone pretty hard. In alot of pain I hopped to the freezer and grabbed and ice cube to put on it (before any swelling, etc occurred). However, coldness added to the pain. I threw the ice in the sink and ran to my room to cry. That's when I remembered the Peppermint and Lavender.

I quickly put 1 drop of each rubbing the spot a little since it was sensitive. In seconds the pain was gone. I went back to my husband who was looking for advil (which I would not take). Never did I feel anymore pain & not one bit of swelling or discoloration. I was more than amazed and I decided then to become a distributor. That was the 1st time I used the oils. I was a new member and thought maybe I should return the bottles, but not after that positive experience!

Supporting Scientific Study
swelling-/-swollen-/-puffy - "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
