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.

We have no handle on our garage door, so to close it you have a tendency to pull it down between the panels. My husband did this and miscalculated moving his fingers in time.

I practically poured the Peppermint on his two fingers gently rubbing the oil all over his fingers and the pain was completely relieved.

A few minutes later the pain was coming back, so I put more Peppermint oil on them, again the pain was relieved almost instantly. We kept applying oil until the pain quit coming back.

A couple weeks have gone by and I noticed some white patches under the fingernails of the fingers he pinched. Apparently the matrix or quick of his fingernails were temporarily damaged.

To my amazement, his fingers weren't bruised or black and he didn't lose his nails either.

Thank goodness for Peppermint oil!
