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.

About a year ago I began treatment of Osteoporosis with Forteo, HCTZ and dietary modification. I searched here and found several suggestions for essential oil treatments, which I have followed. The first is applying Cypress and Wintergreen to the Vita Flex points on my feet each night. The other two were blends I made following a recipe, which I alternated and applied in the morning and massaged into the Vita Flex points.

My primary area of application was my arch, which corresponds with the spine. After a year of these combined programs, my DEXA bone density scan results improved in my spine from -3.0 to -2.3, while maintaining the -1.5 in my hip. As my oil application was focused the spine flex points, I attribute some of the improvement to the essential oils.

I am now also including my heels when I do my twice-daily applications.

1/18/2015: update:
I only use these on the flex points on the feet - Blend 1 in the morning, Blend 3 at night.

Previously posted online elsewhere, I guess I should just type them in here so everyone can review for possible use.

Blend 1 - I make up a batch of 4 or five times the quantities:

10 drops Wintergreen (substitue Birch, Deep Blue or Eucalyptus)
4 drops Helichrysum (substitue Frankincense)
2 drops Lemongrass
3 drops Cypress
4 drops Ginger
2 drops Vetiver

When I'm making my batch, one set will have the substitutes - Eucalyptus for Wintergreen and Frankincense for Helichrysum. I also add 1-2 drops of rosewood per batch, since this oil is very powerful and activates all the others.

Blend 2 - I don't use these

- Apply Wintergreen (or Eucalyptus or Deep Blue) and Cypress at night before bed
- Apply Helichrysum (or Frankincense), Oregano and Balance in the morning, using a carrier oil

Blend 3 - another one I make up "in bulk" with 20 drops of each
- Combine equal parts of Lemongrass, Clove, Eucalyptus and Melaleuca*. Apply on location.

Since these were designed for broken bones, I will apply to flex points on both feet.

* For #3, I use Melaleuca Alternifolia.

P.S. I use Melaleuca Quinquenervia as a muscle cramp preventative - calcium supplements can trigger tight muscles, particularly at night. I am applying a magnesium oil to my thighs once or twice daily to increase Mg levels, and helps prevent the cramps.
