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.

I helped a friend to move and, in the process, stumbled on something. It pulled the muscles/tissue in my foot from second to last toe, to underneath the knuckle on my ankle bone. It was sore, but not unbearably so. I put PanAway on it for about 2 days, 3 times daily, and then the soreness was gone.

Three weeks later, my foot swelled up badly and was sore in the same area. A friend who is a massage therapist said I probably had soft tissue damage that doesn't show up right away. She said I would have to stay off of my foot for several weeks for the tear/pull to heal. I wasn't into doing that!

So I put some Lavender and PanAway along the top of my foot for a couple of days, and then I had the brilliant idea of doing a mini Raindrop Technique on the bottom of my foot. I used all the nine oils twice daily for 3 days. The swelling went completely down and the soreness was gone after a few days.

I did put the oils all over my foot, not just underneath, and I must say I had a bit of an allergic reaction on the thin skin on top, but I just put some Lavender and coconut oil twice a day and that redness disappeared quickly. Just be careful with the strong oils!

No crutches or walking stick for me!
