Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I have had fibromyalgia for 10 years. When I get really bad flares, the pain is so bad I can hardly move, and it is like having a terrible headache all over my body (plus actually having a terrible headache too, that is part of it).

I purchased Young Living's Nutmeg to help with the muscle spasms, and I have found that it works beautifully for local topical application if there is a spasm that will not release with anything else (including massage). You just put a drop or two neat on the knot or spasm, and rub it in, in most cases, the knot releases within minutes.

I have also used it internally when I am flaring all over, as topical application under those circumstances would be impractical. If the flare is really bad, I use 3 or 4 drops of Nutmeg in a veggie capsule, and I use a similar amount of Peppermint in a separate capsule. I have tried putting them in the same capsule, but for some reason, do not get the relief when I do. So the trick is to have them in separate capsules.

I have tried all kinds of remedies, stretching, moist heat packs, theracane etc., and when these all fail on the bad days, the Nutmeg and Peppermint can work wonders.
