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.

Recently, I went to the hospital for swelling, pain, and movement problems with my arm. It turned out to be tendinitis. The doctor prescribed the usual medicine (naproxen sodium) and sent me on my way.

After talking to my pharmacist (who had a list of my medications and knowledge of my health history); she suggested a topical solution instead of the oral medicine due to possible conflicts and reactions.

She referenced a few over the counter non-prescription creams for pain and inflammation. I mentioned the oils to her. She didn't think they would conflict with anything.

So after a little research through an essential oils reference book, I ended up using the combination of a couple of drops of each of Basil and Lavender on my arm. I massaged it in twice a day. It worked like a charm! In less than one week, the symptoms went away.

These oils are amazing and essential!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: nerve-pain — "The patient was successfully treated with topical peppermint oil [for postherpetic neuralgia, a complication of shingles].... The authors believe this is the first evidence of peppermint oil (or menthol) having a strong analgesic effect on neuropathic pain."Link
2.Associated topics: nerve-pain — "Ameliorative effects of Ocimum sanctum [holy basil] in sciatic nerve transection-induced neuropathy...."Link
3.Associated topics: nerve-pain — "Topical high-concentration L-menthol is the only established human experimental pain model to study mechanisms underlying cold hyperalgesia. We aimed at investigating the combinatorial effect of cold stimuli and topical L-menthol on cold pain and secondary mechanical hyperalgesia. Cold detection threshold and cold pain threshold (CPT) increased after L-menthol and remained high after the cold rekindling cycles.... Skin blood flow increased after L-menthol and stayed stable after cold cycles. Repeated application of cold on skin treated by L-menthol facilitated and prolonged L-menthol-induced cold pain and hyperalgesia."Link
