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.


Lavender Oil: I use this daily after my injection of Copaxone. I ice the site first and then put Lavender oil one to three times after to stop pain and heal the injection site. It works SO phenomenally...I've not had "injection site issues" like the paperwork says I could have.

Wintergreen Oil: Anytime I have a muscle spasm coming on...I get my Wintergreen out and rub it up and down the affected muscle and it stops it for me. I've had others with MS try it and claimed it did not work. However, they also swear that only Docs know what they are doing. So I keep Wintergreen oil handy as well.

Peppermint Oil: Always handy as well, flu-like symptoms are a side effect of Copaxone. A drop of Peppermint oil on my stomach has saved me so many times, the nausea just goes away. I also take NOW Peppermint gels, which include Fennel and Ginger oils. I can't imagine not having them! And for headaches, which are a "normal" thing, I'll run a drop under my nostrils, across the back of my neck, and/or on my temples (Be VERY careful to never get it in your eyes) and suddenly no headache.

Helichrysum: When I fall and cause some bruises...I'll use this....It helps with tissue regeneration.

There are a couple of blends I use as well. I have a basket full of oils, but keep Lavender, Wintergreen and Peppermint close by as well...and I travel with those ones FOR SURE.
