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 am a 62 year old reasonably fit male, and 6 weeks ago I slipped on dry grass, fell and badly buckled my left knee, hyper-extending the knee joint. I heard a distinct "pop" in my knee and suffered instant and severe pain. I could not straighten my leg at all and had to be assisted inside.

I immediately used ice on the knee for about 20 minutes while elevating the leg. I then dried the knee and applied Helichrysum for internal bleeding, and then applied a support bandage.

The next morning the knee was badly swollen so I applied a fresh comfrey compress for 12 hours which reduced the swelling by around 80%. I could not raise my leg off the floor or bend the knee and was unable to drive a manual vehicle. I had to be assisted when getting into bed in the evenings, dressing and showering.

For the next 5 weeks I applied the following oils morning and night and kept the knee supported in a bandage.

-Cypress
-Vetiver
-Wintergreen
-Lemongrass

My knee became more and more flexible over these weeks, my mobility steadily improved and the pain subsided daily. I now have full flexibilty back in the left knee, no pain at all, the joint is stable, I can do a full squat and rise again without any assistance and I have no pain whatsoever.

I was advised by a friend who has been an orthopedic nurse, that if I had sought conventional medical treatment, I would still probably be in a plaster cast! Thank God and Gary Young for the amazing gift of these oils!
