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 have had restless leg syndrome for many years. I have used an over-the-counter medicine, by Hyland I think, and it works pretty good, but it takes a while to kick in. I also use melatonin and I'm going to try to get off that with the oils too -- which is actually what prompted my curiosity about the oils.

So last night, I rubbed the PanAway oil blend on my shins and calves as that was what was one person suggested. Then I put the Peace & Calming oil blend on the bottom of my feet. Usually my twitching legs kick in a bit after I get in bed.

I kept kind of waiting for it, but nothing. My legs never even had a hint of a twitch. And it has been REALLY bad lately, to the point I want to cry sometimes it is so frustrating. What a blessing!! TRULY. Even though it still took me quite some time to fall asleep, I was so much more relaxed because I wasn't struggling with my legs.

I told my husband that even if it was a placebo effect, which I don't think it was, I don't care because it worked.

Thanks!
