My daughter is in a marathon class and had progressed up to running 6 miles per day. Then one day she hurt herself and could barely walk. X-ray did not show the problem but dr. said it was a torn Achilles tendon and that she could not run/walk for 6 weeks or more.

She got a splint and used crutches. We started putting on Palo Santo, Valor, Pan-Away, peppermint and Ortho Sport on it, and in a week she could walk with minimal pain. Running did take longer of course. Still it was an amazing recovery, she is totally sure it was the oils, and told me to tell you about it. LOL :)
