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.

My friend is not diabetic but has been troubled with neuropathy of his feet/toes for over 3 years. He has see different doctors for this problem as it gives him severe sharp shooting pains in his toes and feet. He was prescribed on several medications none of which did anything for the pains. I used a blend of Cypress, Wintergreen and Helichrysum. Which gave some relief but he needed to use it every 3-4 hours, which was difficult during the day at work. As I was reading in my essential oils reference book, I came across information that included Nutmeg as a help for "nerve pain".

I gave him some Nutmeg and he rubbed it on his feet/toes every night with the OrthoEase. He also started taking the Nutmeg 2-3 drops in a capsule every AM. After 3 days he no longer had any pain in his feet/toes. He now uses only the one capsule of Nutmeg daily and once a week a foot soak then applying the Nutmeg with the OrthoEase. He has not had any; not even one episode of the pain since the 3rd day he started this regimen. Such a wonderful relief after years of painful feet. The Nutmeg like the other Young Living oils are pure and do not cause any 'side effects'.
