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 had a frozen shoulder last week. I have had it before 15 years ago and it was finally treated by acupuncture after going to a chiropractor and using supplements such as Glucosamines for several weeks.

This time I tried to see a MD but I found my insurance didn't cover acupuncture. I then scheduled an acupuncture appointment for the following week as I was willing to pay the out of pocket costs.

During the weekend I added different essential oils to my shoulder like Lavender, Cypress, Peppermint and Valor. These were oils that I had available. I also looked up in the essential oil integrated medical guide. I added the oils in layers and after that I put wet warm compress on my shoulder for approximately ten minutes. I did the procedure 3 times per day. I held my arm still and tried not to use it at all.

After two days of using essential oils the pain in the arm had gone from level 8 to level 2 and I was able to lift my arm up to my face. Before using the oils I was only able to lift my arm about 30% and it was very painful. Four days after I started the essential oils I had full range of motion in my arm and the pain was gone.

I cancelled my acupuncture appointment. I am truly impressed with the oils. I have used the Young Living brand for over seven years. Lavender works well for minor burns, cuts, skin cream and sleep. Peppermint is great for inflammation, clarity etc. Oregano helps with allergies, colds, tooth abscess, arthritis pain, etc. Lemon can alleviate bee stings, and works well in laundry, to mention a few.
