On my last trip to visit my children, my ankles and feet got very swollen to the point they were painful to move, it even hurt to walk. I had not brought my full contingent of oils or supplements with me, so began using what I had on hand, which was Cypress, ortho ease and doubled my intake of omega blue, NingXia Red and Sulfurzyme. The pain would be gone by morning after having my feet elevated in bed, however, it never took too long for severe swelling and pain to return.

I had the pocket reference with me and saw that Tangerine was listed as one of the oils that could help. I did not have any with me, but my daughter had some, so I used her bottle of Tangerine and dripped about 6 drops in each palm and put it on my legs from my knees down and all over my feet before I went to bed.

At around 3:30 in the morning I had huge pressure to go to bathroom to urinate, which I did, and experienced lots and lots of fluid releasing. When I woke up in the morning, the swelling in both ankles and feet was gone! So was all the pain! I was thrilled and astonished and so very thankful. I really only used the Tangerine one more time in the same way, while I was at my daughter's, as the symptoms were all gone.

Truly amazing these oils.....I have been with Young Living now for 14 years, and continue to be surprised. I am truly blessed to have these wonderful products in my life and thank you to Gary Young for sharing his knowledge, time, energy and love.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: edema — "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
2.Associated topics: heart — "Myrtle oil (MO) exerts hypoglycemic as well as mild hypotriglyceridemic activity in diabetic animals. The reduction in blood glucose level may be due to the reversible inhibition of alpha-glucosidases present in the brush-border of the small intestinal mucosa, higher rate of glycolysis as envisaged by the higher activity of glucokinase, as one of the key enzymes of glycolysis, and enhanced rate of glycogenesis as evidenced by the higher amount of liver glycogen present after MO administration."Link
3.Associated topics: heart — "[I]dentifying... the effects of YYA [ylang ylang aroma] on blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) is important in order to demonstrate the effectiveness of YYA. The present results demonstrated that inhalation of YYA significantly decreased the systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Inhalation of YYA also significantly decreased the HRs in 10 leads.... In the present results, YYA caused a reduction of HR and BP, and a relief of the arousal level in healthy men. The present results show a sedative effect of YYA, and this study provides some evidences for the usage of YYA [as a] medicinal agent."Link
4.Associated topics: heart — "Aromatherapy... [consisting of] a blend of oils of lemon (Citrus limonum), lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), and ylang ylang (Cananga odorata)... is effective in lowering systolic blood pressure and sympathetic nerve system activity... of heart rate variability."Link
