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.

Last weekend my family and I were at a cookout, and some of the kids, including my 13 year old daughter, were jumping on a trampoline. My daughter sprained her ankle, but didn't tell me right away.

When we got home and she told me, I took a look at it, and it was swollen, hurting and she couldn't move it. So I grabbed my PanAway oil blend, Lavender oil, and Peppermint, rubbed them on one by one, layering on both sides of her ankle, elevated it, then put an ice pack on it.

The next morning the swelling was going down and there was no bruising, I again put the PanAway, Lavender and Peppermint on, along with the ice pack (2x each day).

On day 3 the swelling was down, there was no bruising what so ever, and she could now move it, as well as get off the crutches and walk a little.

By day 4 she was back to normal as if it never happened and there was no bruising or pain during the entire time. Thanks to these oils she had no pain, no bruising and was back to normal in less than 4 days, truly amazing.

Thank you Young Living for these wonderful essential oils, I wouldn't know what to do without them.

Supporting Scientific Study
swelling-/-swollen-/-puffy - "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
