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 had a sore wrist for some time (may be from heavy computer use) One day the pain increased and I could not use my hand. I could not move it. The wrist movement up and down and side to side was impossible due to pain and probably swelling.

I went to a chiropractor/kinesiologist and it improved slightly. I made up a blend of oils from the essential oils reference book for muscle pain and it eased somewhat.

I then decided to put Copaiba on liberally around the wrist and I also tried Idaho Balsam Fir which seemed to help a little. I still has a sore wrist. Of course the swelling went down and I could eventually use my hand again, but I still had soreness in the wrist.

One night I put on the Copaiba and Balsam Fir and decided to top it off with the 3 Wise Men oil blend for some reason. The next morning no pain at all! I thought this amazing. I had full movement and no pain. I was like new. The wrist was like this for over a month and then I opened a jar and it caused pain and I could feel the wrist starting to get to that stage it had before, with the swelling and pain and no movement.

I did my Copaiba, Balsam Fir and 3 Wise Men and the next day it was much better. I repeated this again and it is amazing how my wrist is pain free, full movement..like new. I just love these oils so much.
