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.
One day my two-year-old, Gabe, started to cry and complain that his foot hurt. My husband, the king of the psycho-somatic "cures" for our kids' imagined and real bumps and bruises, reached for the first thing he could grab to use as the "no owie juice," which ended up being a bottle of the oil mixture that I use to treat Gabe's diarrhea. It contained 4 drops of Ginger and 4 drops of Rosemary in 2 tablespoons of organic olive oil. He made a big deal out of rubbing a few drops on Gabe's foot, and soon he was laughing and playing again.
That night, Gabe woke up screaming in pain and pointing to his foot. I massaged it for 5 minutes or so and that helped a little, but then I ran down to get the oil. Within a few minutes, Gabe was asleep again. The next day I looked up Ginger and Rosemary, and sure enough, they are both good for relieving cramps! An accidental discovery that has helped us time and time again since that night.
Since then I have learned that many toddlers will occasionally get painful foot cramps, especially at night, and parents are advised to massage the foot for 20-30 minutes or so and the child will eventually fall back to sleep. My solution is much faster!
I also gave some of it to a friend to use on her menstrual cramps, after doubling the amount of oil that I used in the carrier oil, and she said it worked very well.
