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.


My husband first began suffering from the pain of neuralgia about two years ago. As you can imagine, the pain is sharp, swift and can cause him to fall to his knees, in tears.

He has been undergoing acupuncture for some months, especially in the colder months (we live in Canada). For most of the summer, say from May to the end of September, he is relatively pain free.

A friend of mine introduced me to high quality essential oils, which I began to use in our home.

Then in May of this year, my husband suffered from another attack. I knew that Peppermint is an essential oil to use on pain, so I applied a drop on his brow, where the pain was most intense. Both of us were totally taken aback when within 20 seconds the pain was totally gone.

The acupuncture and essential oils both assist with the management of the pain of neuralgia, keep it at bay and, hopefully, will be a thing of the past.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: trigeminal-neuralgia — "The result for the primary end point was validated by the amelioration of the following secondary end points: headache on bending, frontal headache, sensitivity of pressure points of trigeminal nerve, impairment of general condition, nasal obstruction, and rhinological secretion.... In patients with acute nonpurulent rhinosinusitis, timely treatment with cineole [a.k.a. eucalyptol... found in eucalyptus, camphor laurel, laurus nobilis, tea tree, mugwort, basil, wormwood, rosemary, sage, and cannabis] is effective and safe before antibiotics are indicated."Link
2.Associated topics: trigeminal-neuralgia,nerve-damage,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
3.Associated topics: nerve-damage,nerve-pain — "Ameliorative effects of Ocimum sanctum [holy basil] in sciatic nerve transection-induced neuropathy...."Link
4.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
