Five days ago my mother called, saying she had "stubbed" her littlest toe and broken it. The same toe that she had broken twice before - and from her past experience, she was pretty sure that it was once again, broken. "It turned purple and blue and swelled up like a little sausage", is what she said. She couldn't touch it, stand or apply any pressure on or near it.
Before I could comment, she said she put Young Living's "Elemi" oil on it right away, and within 10 minutes, she could touch her foot because the intense and excruciating pain had had dissipated to a tolerable level. She oiled it up again and went to bed. That next morning, she was THRILLED to be able to get a sock and supportive shoe on.
On day 3, I went over to her home, and told her that I wanted to just rub some oils on her, and on her spine as well as apply some warm, wet towels. I have never seen a Raindrop massage, but - read up on it really briefly, just to be able to try to help her. So I massaged PanAway on her back, spine and on the bottoms of her feet. I didn't really do anything "professional" or specific, mainly rubbing the spine area and doing the light feathery strokes... just trying to help relieve her pain and allow her to sleep and heal.
She suffers from insomnia, and really needed some rest. She drank some Perfect Water (micro-clustered, alkaline, oxygenated) and went to bed, to get the best sleep that she said she had in months.
Today is day 5 and I offered to put some PanAway on her toe and foot. When my mother took her shoe off, I thought it was the wrong foot! NO kidding! not only was the toe the normal size and shape, ALL of the purple and blue was gone. Just gone. I asked her if she had been icing it or elevating it and she said that all she had been doing is "slathering it in pure Lavender essential oil".
I should mention that my mother has had a chronic and painful life (fibromyalgia) with many health challenges and complications. At age 68 she is still employed at a Chiropractic clinic as a radiological technician and she is now my biggest fan of Young Living oils. She can walk normally and only experiences pain at the end of the night, if she's been on her feet all day.
She thinks the oils took the pain and inflammation out of her toe, this allowing her body to try to heal itself naturally. I still can't believe her toe is the color of skin and flesh, when the last time I had seen it a few days ago, it was black, blue and purple, with the colors extending to the bottom of her foot and across the tops of her next 2 toes. As I type this, I am in awe... Awesome! So glad to be able to relieve pain for my mom.
