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.

I had surgery on my knee in my early 20s due to many sports injuries. My friend told me that if I would Vita Flex the Longevity oil blend into my knee, my arthritis and pain would improve. I don't Vita Flex it into the joint too often, BUT I did take 5 drops internally every day.

In October, I went out of state to teach classes about the Young Living oils. I had taken a brand new bottle of Longevity with me because my old bottle was almost gone. Well, I ended up selling the new bottle to a gal who came to my class. Because I was traveling and waiting on my next order, it was about 2.5 weeks before I got my new bottle of Longevity again. My knee was really screaming at me!

When I got my new bottle, I took 5 drops twice a day for a couple of days just to really saturate my body with the oils again. After about a day and a half, the pain had greatly reduced and after a few days, my knee was back to its "new Young Living" normal - almost totally pain-free!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: joints,arthritis — "Ruxiang (Gummi olibanum), the dried gum resin of Boswellia carterii (BC) [frankincense], has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate pain and inflammation for thousands of years.... The data show that BC extract has significant anti-arthritic and anti-inflammation effects and suggest that these effects may be mediated via the suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines."Link
2.Associated topics: joints,arthritis — "We have demonstrated that Boswellia frereana [frankincense] prevents collagen degradation, and inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory mediators and MMPs. Due to its efficacy we propose that B. frereana should be examined further as a potential therapeutic agent for treating inflammatory symptoms associated with arthritis."Link
3.Associated topics: joints — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
