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.

"I thought you'd like to know that Mom is feeling better. She says she was already starting to feel better before you put the oils on her; but, I'm here to tell you that there was a remarkable difference the day after you put them on."

I received this short note from my cousin, Linda, just two days after I visited my 64-year-old Aunt Martha. She had been having dreadful pain in her lower back which started two weeks earlier after she twisted around too quickly in her bathtub. She felt something twinge and then the pain became excruciating.

When I heard that she had been in pain for two weeks, I shared with Linda, her daughter, the exercises that had been shown to me when my own back "went out". Linda showed Aunt Martha how to do them and she performed them three times a day for two days, then on my first Saturday off work, I grabbed my case of oils & went to see her. I applied Peppermint, then PanAway, (both neat) and she lay down on the couch to rest. We visited for a while and she didn't seem much better. I left for home that evening feeling somewhat dejected because I didn't think I helped much (except that we did have a nice visit).

So you can imagine my pleasure on the following Monday to receive the message above from Linda. There's got to be something to it! Linda blamed her mother's improvement on the oils, not the exercises. So, now I feel all better now too!

Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
2.Associated topics: muscle-pain,muscles — "[T]he effect of essential oils on skeletal and smooth muscle...: The first type of effect on skeletal muscle involved a contracture and inhibition of the twitch response to nerve stimulation shown by a sample of clary sage, dill, fennel, frankincense, and nutmeg; ...lavender reduced the twitch response alone."Link
3.Associated topics: muscle-pain,muscles — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
