A shadow cast from the front door window had me misjudge the bottom step at my office one night last November when I was locking up for the evening. I fell on the floor so hard I think the whole building shook. My right knee was first to hit the floor; my right ankle twisted as I fell. The pain was so intense that at first it was hard for me to breathe. I lay on the floor, near tears, wondering what on earth I was going to do. My phone was upstairs in my office and I was the only one in the building.

After a few minutes of rest I managed to stand and make my way to the bannister on the stairway. I pulled myself up the steps, opened my office door, sat back down and opened my essential oils reference book. PanAway was a recommended oil for bruising and for sprained ankles - and it happened that I'd gotten a Young Living delivery that very day with a 15 ml bottle of PanAway. I opened the child proof cap and slathered my knee and ankle with oil.

I tucked the bottle in my pocket and made my way carefully down the back stairs to my car.

After arriving home I made my way to my bedroom by leaning on various pieces of furniture. I applied more oil, said a prayer and tucked myself in for the night.

In the morning I peeled back the covers and put my ankle out from under. I gave it a test - by slowly rotating it clockwise. No pain! That was a surprise. Next I stood and looked down at my knee. There was only the slightest bit of bruising - and no pain.

There was no reason to expect such a wonderful outcome. It certainly would not have been the case for me in years past. Incidents such as these are uncomfortable at best - and yet I find I don't mind them so much. They add to my growing experience of and appreciation for the magnificence of nature's gifts to us, by way of Young Living.

With love and gratitude,
