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.

While working at my computer quite a bit on Friday evening I must have laid on my elbow too long and in the wrong position and bruised my tendon and/or nerve because I woke up in the middle of the night in such pain and my right arm actually felt paralyzed at the elbow.

I got up and put some PanAway and Peppermint on my elbow and then went back to bed. I woke up the next morning still in a lot of pain and with no strength or mobility in my elbow, plus it was very swollen.

I continued with the 1-2 drops of PanAway and Peppermint (put on top) and then followed with some ice for about 15 minutes. I did this about 4 times throughout the day with 1 application of Aroma Siez and the rest of the day I applied Ortho Sport and just rested.

I woke up this morning feeling so much better! The swelling is practically gone, I have about 90% mobility back in my elbow and the pain is non-existent unless I extend my elbow too far or in the wrong direction.

Because of Young Living and these beautiful God-given oils now I don't have to cancel my Young Living Open House event that is set for this afternoon! :-)

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: nerve-pain — "The patient was successfully treated with topical peppermint oil [for postherpetic neuralgia, a complication of shingles].... The authors believe this is the first evidence of peppermint oil (or menthol) having a strong analgesic effect on neuropathic pain."Link
2.Associated topics: nerve-pain — "Ameliorative effects of Ocimum sanctum [holy basil] in sciatic nerve transection-induced neuropathy...."Link
3.Associated topics: nerve-pain — "Topical high-concentration L-menthol is the only established human experimental pain model to study mechanisms underlying cold hyperalgesia. We aimed at investigating the combinatorial effect of cold stimuli and topical L-menthol on cold pain and secondary mechanical hyperalgesia. Cold detection threshold and cold pain threshold (CPT) increased after L-menthol and remained high after the cold rekindling cycles.... Skin blood flow increased after L-menthol and stayed stable after cold cycles. Repeated application of cold on skin treated by L-menthol facilitated and prolonged L-menthol-induced cold pain and hyperalgesia."Link
