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.

Yesterday morning my husband, who is in his early 80's, got up with a very painful foot and ankle filled with fluid. An injury might have occurred the previous day when he was playing tennis.

I applied a generous amount of Cypress oil and some Lemongrass oil and massaged it. Within minutes I could begin to see his ankle bones and the skin on his foot began to loosen. The pain began to subside. I did another application before bed and this morning all of the swelling is gone and only a slight sensitivity on the outside of his foot remains. What a blessing our Young Living oils are!
