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.

After three visits to my primary care physician, I had a diagnosis of Morton's neuroma (a.k.a. Morton neuroma, Morton's metatarsalgia, Morton's neuralgia, plantar neuroma, intermetatarsal neuroma, and interdigital neuroma) along with nonspecific inflammatory arthritis in the great toe of the same foot.

I have used the Thieves Spray for skin irritations such as bug bites, calluses, and ear pain over the last year. So after several weeks of painful stair climbing and dog walking, I tried the Thieves Spray on my foot at night while sleeping, along with my prescribed nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication (NSAID). I noticed overnight results in the reduction of both pain and swelling symptoms.

Looking back on my foot history, I can see that I have had this neuroma developing for several years, as I do not wear proper arch-supporting shoes and overuse my feet during exercise. It is a very simple condition, according to my physician, that can successfully be managed by caring for one's feet.

Thanks to new athletic shoes and some simple treatments, I am back at my routine of dog walking, being an emergency room triage volunteer, and taking my stairs at home okay.
