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 patient, who is also a fitness instructor, dropped a table on her foot. The pain was severe enough that it sent her to the emergency room (ER). The only thing they could do for her was to give her crutches and advise her to do RICE (rest, ice, compression, and elevation).

She contacted me, and I suggested oiling four times a day with essential oils that she had on hand. PanAway was first, then Valor, then Peppermint, then Deep Relief Roll-On, then Lavender, and then Purification (because of the Lemongrass in it). She also added some Frankincense for the discomfort and drank a few shots of NingXia Red.

In one day she experienced enough relief from the discomfort and swelling that she planned on teaching (without participating) the next day!
