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.

Two years ago I had a meniscus tear in my right knee. The surgical repair didn't provide relief, so I had to follow up with a uni-compartmental knee replacement. I've had pain and swelling since and my physicians have been unable to find a medical cause.

I decided to treat it as a possible hypersensitivity to metal, thinking that my leg might be reacting to the implant itself. I had much improvement using Lavender, Melrose, Peppermint and Frankincense, but the days I had to be on my feet a lot were still miserable.

After using the normal oils on one of the difficult days, I tried adding spikenard and Myrrh out of desperation. I was greatly relieved to have most of the inflammation subside and to know that I could have more active days as long as I'm careful to mitigate the strain on my leg with the appropriate oils. Without them I would have to live a much more restricted life.
