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.

One night several years ago after getting off work about 2 AM, I walked up one set of stairs to get to my place, I slipped on something that fell from a tree. My ankle had turned outward and I heard a pop and experienced excruciating pain. I hopped up the stairs. I immediately put on an ice pack.

Later that morning, I made an appointment to see my doctor to make sure it wasn't broken. He referred me to the Ortho clinic and I was given a splint to wear, crutches, told to ice it, keep it elevated and prescribed a pain medicine which I didn't take.

There were no breaks in the bone, but three torn ligaments two on one side and one on the other with swelling. I was told that these injuries take a long time to heal.

I got home and read my essential oils reference book to find what I needed for ligaments and mixed Wintergreen and Lemongrass and put on 3-4 drops on the area and massaged it in. I did it for 2 weeks, 3 times a day.

After the 1st week I was walking without a limp, swelling or pain. After the 2nd week, I didn't realize that I had an injury. Several people who had the same experience told me that they still had problems a year later.

To this day there is no pain. If I'm on my feet for several hours I may have minor swelling but nothing else.
