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.
