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 jammed my ring finger playing basketball and had to remove my wedding ring due to swelling. It took 6 months for my ring to be able to fit again due to residual swelling. (As a Physical Therapist, I've noted this lingering pain/swelling to be common in the fingers due to the relative inability to rest the affected area)

Sometime later I jammed my thumb in a similar manner. I applied Lemongrass oil (diluted 5-1 in carrier oil) daily for 2-3 weeks. This time the finger healed in less than a month with no pain or residual swelling noticeable.

Additional keyword(s) assigned by the editor: finger, jammed, , thumb.
