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.

A sharp pain in my heel began suddenly. After visiting a podiatrist once or twice a week for a month for whirlpool and taping of my foot without success. His only recommendation was a cortisone shot or anti-inflammatory drugs.

I wanted neither, so I asked a friend who does kinesiology to "ask my body" what it needed. My body said Cistus, and she gave me a few drops with massage oil in a 5 dram bottle. I applied it that evening and the next day and was pain free in less than two days. This was over ten years ago and I have not had a recurrence.

I sent some to a friend who got painful heels after playing tennis on a hard court. She had almost immediate relief. I sent a small sample to another friend who has been seeing doctors for two years with spurs in both heels.

I saw him five days later and he told me his heels were 95% better and that it was the first day in two years that he was not wearing gel cushions in his shoes.

1.Associated topics: bones-/-osteo — "Common herbs, essential oils, and monoterpenes potently modulate bone metabolism.... we investigated several common herbs rich in essential oils (sage, rosemary, and thyme) and essential oils extracted from these herbs and other plants (oils of sage, rosemary, juniper, pine, dwarf pine, turpentine, and eucalyptus) as well as their monoterpene components (thujone, eucalyptol, camphor, borneol, thymol, alpha-pinene, beta-pinene, bornylacetate as well as menthol) and found that they inhibit bone resorption.... Our study demonstrates for the first time that essential oils and monoterpenes are efficient inhibitors of bone resorption...."Link
2.Associated topics: bones-/-osteo — "Results of bone density, bone mineral content, bone tensile strength and histological analysis also showed similar trend of results, which supported initial observations of this study. It is proposed that hydroalcoholic extract of dried clove buds has bone-preserving efficacy against hypogonadal [hormonally deficient] osteoporosis."Link
