Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

My dad has taken and continues to take several medications for various conditions. He says that he is now getting slight swelling in his feet with associated pain. You can see the swelling, but it's not very large.

In a moment of inspiration, I took some extra virgin olive oil in my palm and put in a few drops of Peppermint. I massaged his feet and then told him to leave them up and elevated. Within 10 minutes he said his swelling his diappearred but the pain remained.

The next day he called me to say the pain had gone. He applied the oils once a day for a few more days and now 3 weeks later he doesn't have the pain or the slight swelling...that and my mom stole the bottle!

I'm going to leave him a bottle if needed in the future, but it is remarkable how fast it worked and that he didn't need to continue taking it!
