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.


I was scheduled to have surgery a few months back to fix a slap tear/rotator cuff tear in my shoulder that was causing me lots of pain and preventing me from training (I'm a former college swimmer that now swims with a Master's team).

A friend of mine that has been using the Young Living oils for several years suggested I try Lemongrass oil before having the surgery. I started applying this oil to my shoulder before and after swim practice with some V-6 oil on top to prevent skin irritation. I'm happy to report that after one month of using Lemongrass on a daily basis, my shoulder was feeling so good that I have postponed my surgery indefinitely. Thanks Young Living!!!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: muscle-pain — "We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
2.Associated topics: muscle-pain — "[T]he effect of essential oils on skeletal and smooth muscle...: The first type of effect on skeletal muscle involved a contracture and inhibition of the twitch response to nerve stimulation shown by a sample of clary sage, dill, fennel, frankincense, and nutmeg; ...lavender reduced the twitch response alone."Link
3.Associated topics: muscle-pain — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
