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.

This year when we went to the mountains, at the end of October, 2012, I took as many oils with me as I could so I would be prepared for anything and I was so glad I did.

Not long after we arrived I fell, after tripping over the threshold between the kitchen and dining room. Strange how many thoughts go through your mind when something like this happens.

First I felt my body weight fall on my knees, then my chest and then slapped the floor with the lower part of my hands. My first thought was I couldn't believe I did that and oh my goodness how I hurt. Let me tell you first, I am no skinny minny, and at 60 years old well I was surprised nothing was broken.

Once I got over the initial shock of having fallen I realized that my knees were really hurting so I went and got my oils and oiled first with PanAway, Exodus II, and Lemongrass, then I iced for 15 minutes, then removed the ice.

It was already after 6 p.m. however, I repeated these steps at least twice more before going to bed. I left the oils next to the bed so as I woke up during the night I could apply the oils if necessary.

I was pretty sore during the night however, the next morning I found I wasn't as bad as the night before. I oiled and iced all during the next day, even while we were riding around site seeing. After that it was as though I hadn't even hurt my knees.
