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.


For about a year I'd been having sudden shooting pain in my right knee when standing with the knee out to a 45 degree angle, or when turning...normal activities. I'd tried chiropractic care for a year to no avail. I did not know what it was, and was on the verge of going to get an expensive MRI and hospital care.

It occurred to me to try the oils. So, first I layered 2-3 drops each of Wintergreen on the knee, then Cypress, Spruce and Fir. I topped it off with Copaiba to drive it in. I did this twice a day.

By day two in the afternoon, sitting at my desk, I suddenly felt a strange sensation, like something was shifting inside of my knee! It felt a sort of a "ka-thunk". This repeated itself about 3-4 times for the rest of the day.

After that day, my pain is gone...completely! I was astonished. I always thought of the oils providing subtle support, but there was NOTHING subtle about this.

Although I am not a doctor, I believe my meniscus was dislocated...not torn, and that the oils helped it to "relocate" so to speak, back where it ought to be.

The knee is still a little unstable, but it has improved a lot, and there is no more pain.

I LOVE the oils!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: osteoarthritis — "Ruxiang (Gummi olibanum), the dried gum resin of Boswellia carterii (BC) [frankincense], has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate pain and inflammation for thousands of years.... The data show that BC extract has significant anti-arthritic and anti-inflammation effects and suggest that these effects may be mediated via the suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines."Link
2.Associated topics: osteoarthritis — "We have demonstrated that Boswellia frereana [frankincense] prevents collagen degradation, and inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory mediators and MMPs. Due to its efficacy we propose that B. frereana should be examined further as a potential therapeutic agent for treating inflammatory symptoms associated with arthritis."Link
