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 went to see an energy healer for a session. She noticed that my jaw muscles were very tight. She asked if she could put Basil essential oil on my Temporomandibular joints to relax them. She gently rubbed a drop or two on each side.

About 10 minutes later, I thought my jaws were swollen. Instead, the Basil had relaxed my muscles completely. They felt swollen because I wasn't used to them being so relaxed. This lasted for six or eight hours!

I started buying essential oils at health food stores, because I was so impressed. Those oils did not do much. I later learned that not all oils are therapeutic grade, and the Basil used on my TM joints was from Young Living Essential Oils.

I now only use the Young Living brand. Basil, the Peace & Calming and Stress Away blends are my favorite TMJ oils.

I now only need them if life is particularly stressful and I start clenching.
