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.

I just had to share this! After the Young Living convention, and hearing about the huge benefits of the combination of Frankincense and Idaho Balsam Fir oils, I was just waiting for the opportunity to try them out together.

Well unfortunately/fortunately I got my wish. My son in law walked into a bar on the floor and broke at least his pinkie toe. He probably broke another small bone or two in the top of his foot as well, due to the way it immediately turned black and swelled up, so much that he couldn't put a shoe on. He could not walk on it all day and was ready to go to the hospital. He is a tree-trimmer and could not even put his boot on to work.

I went to the store and bought those toe-tubes (a tube like bandage that you cut and slide over the toe for bunions). I turned it inside out and saturated it with Lavender, Frankincense and Idaho Balsam Fir oil.

Then I turned it back and had him put it on the toe and we wrapped it with tape to hold it in place. That was three days ago. I've done this the last two nights before he went to bed.

My daughter just called me and they are so excited. No more bruising, no more pain, he can bend his toes/foot, and he can even wear his sneakers. They are both amazed at the speed of recovery.

I'm still amazed that it is taking them so long to catch on that ESSENTIAl OILS WORK!

1.Associated topics: bones-/-osteo — "Common herbs, essential oils, and monoterpenes potently modulate bone metabolism.... we investigated several common herbs rich in essential oils (sage, rosemary, and thyme) and essential oils extracted from these herbs and other plants (oils of sage, rosemary, juniper, pine, dwarf pine, turpentine, and eucalyptus) as well as their monoterpene components (thujone, eucalyptol, camphor, borneol, thymol, alpha-pinene, beta-pinene, bornylacetate as well as menthol) and found that they inhibit bone resorption.... Our study demonstrates for the first time that essential oils and monoterpenes are efficient inhibitors of bone resorption...."Link
2.Associated topics: bones-/-osteo — "Results of bone density, bone mineral content, bone tensile strength and histological analysis also showed similar trend of results, which supported initial observations of this study. It is proposed that hydroalcoholic extract of dried clove buds has bone-preserving efficacy against hypogonadal [hormonally deficient] osteoporosis."Link
