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've already had knee surgery on one knee (for a torn meniscus) so when my knee started to really bother me during zumba classes about a year ago, I was frustrated. I couldn't step out to the side, or twist my knee at all without it hurting. I was training to become a zumba instructor, and stopping class was not an option for me.

The doctor told me I had "crappy female knees" - his official diagnosis. Said I would need physical therapy at the very least.

I went to therapy for one session but decided to try the oils alone first. Based on testimonials from this site, I decided to try a multi-oil approach.

At night, I put Palo Santo, Lemongrass, Cyrpress, and Wintergreen on my knee. I also put Lemongrass on the soles of my feet.

During the day, when I remembered, I put Clove, Ginger, and Nutmeg on the knee, too.

WIthin a few days, the pain was alleviated. WIthin about 2 weeks, the pain was completely gone, even though I was doing more zumba than ever. I stopped using the oils about 2 weeks in, and still no pain.

In the last 6 months, the pain has not returned, perhaps a twinge here or there, but I just use the oils once more and it goes away. It is so refreshing to know that I have something to try if the knee acts up again.
