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 dad had a severe accident with one of his many injuries being that he injured and broke his left leg. Almost three years since his accident and surgery, he has had to tolerate neuropathy on the entire bottom of his foot (major tingling sensation). The pain was so bad that it made it very difficult to do anything with his foot, like putting on a sock and shoe and even washing it while in the shower.

After searching this website, I came across one person that had some relief with similar symptoms. So we tried applying 3 drops of Nutmeg along with a few drops of OrthoEase carrier oil on the bottom of his foot once a day. After about 2 weeks, my dad said his nerve pain was reduced to about half!

I then added about 5 drops of Nutmeg to a Young Living capsule (again, per another testimonial), and had my dad take one capsule a day (in addition to rubbing his foot with the Nutmeg and OrthoEase every day). His nerve pain has reduced now to about 75-80%. He is so excited about the relief and very impressed with these oils!

He can now have someone touch his foot and he doesn't even flinch. And as a perk, his skin on his foot looks wonderful and healthy! We love the Young Living oils!
