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 am a massage therapist and about the second week of my schooling every muscle in my body was aching from being in either a squat or a lunge for most of the day. I had suffered from charley horses infrequently through the years, but one night after school, I had the mother of all charley horses that lasted 18 minutes and just kept coming in waves-I know because I timed it.

I vowed right then and there that if I survived this pain, if I had to crawl (which I did) to my oils reference book, I would find an oil in there to help. My research led me to Wintergreen, which I immediately applied to the area, along with some pressure. The relief of pain was within ten minutes, but the most astonishing thing was that there was no residual pain left, which is never the case. I felt like I had not had a charley horse at all.

Wintergreen is now a permanent part of my arsenal of oils that I never leave home without.
