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.

My horse stepped in a gopher hole and badly sprained his hind leg around the fetlock and cannon area. It was so swollen he couldn't walk on it.

The vet told me to put an anti-inflammatory on it and wrap it in cellophane and he would check on it next week.

I did as he said but I also put OrthoEase, Wintergreen, the Aroma Siez, Relieve It oil blends and Peppermint on it - in that order.

Within 1 day he was off the bute, within 2 days he was walking on it, although limping.

Within 3 days the swelling was down and there was just a bit of heat left in the leg.

Within 4 days the swelling was gone, there was no heat and he was walking normally.

On the 5th day he galloped all the way from the pasture up to the barn and never missed a beat.
