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.

After five years of taking medication due to a stroke my former boss, Mike, did not get any better. He was in constant pain and he spent a lot of money on prescription medications trying to heal. Here are the essential oils that I combined for him: Frankincense, PanAway, Peace & Calming, and Peppermint. I had him apply these to the soles of his feet 2x daily, mid - afternoon and at night before going to bed.

From Jan 8, 2013 to Feb 7, 2013 approximately one month later, he applied the oils 2x daily. Now Mike is off his prescription neuropathy medications and is completely pain-free. He only uses the oils 1x daily at night before going to sleep.

Caution: I informed Mike that he needed to consult with his doctor so he knew what he was doing. It is too dangerous to just stop taking any prescription drugs without the help of his doctors, so he agreed and worked with his doctor who weaned him off his meds in 19 days.

Mike's internist was so impressed with Mike's pain relief and his results. He told Mike he would like to meet with me because he was interested in the oils too. He explained that he would like to start recommending them to his other patients who also suffer with neuropathy pain, as the prescription meds don't work for them either.

Mike said he can't wait to go and play golf this summer and it's the first time in over 5 years since he first had his stroke that he has had absolutely no pain in his feet. He tells everyone that I'm his angel, but I told Mike it wasn't me, it was the essential oils. I was just God's messenger who delivered them to him.

I am now currently working with Mike to help him with his high blood pressure using the combination of NingXia Red juice and oils. Mike stated that he would like to be off those prescription medications too. He said he has faith that with time it will happen also, because these oils helped his neuropathy when nothing else could. He is a true believer in the oils, because when all else failed, the oils proved to do what they claimed they could do.

Mike took me to lunch for my birthday and it the best gift I could have ever received, hearing him say how happy he is now because he is no longer in pain. All I can say is that my heart smiled that day and has every day since!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: hypertension — "The ylang ylang oil caused a significant decrease of blood pressure and a significant increase of skin temperature. At the behavioral level, subjects in the ylang ylang oil group rated themselves more calm and more relaxed than subjects in the control group. These findings are likely to represent a relaxing effect of the ylang ylang oil and provide some evidence for the usage of the ylang ylang oil in aromatherapy such as causing a relief of depression and stress in humans."Link
2.Associated topics: hypertension — "Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
3.Associated topics: heart,stroke — "Myrtle oil (MO) exerts hypoglycemic as well as mild hypotriglyceridemic activity in diabetic animals. The reduction in blood glucose level may be due to the reversible inhibition of alpha-glucosidases present in the brush-border of the small intestinal mucosa, higher rate of glycolysis as envisaged by the higher activity of glucokinase, as one of the key enzymes of glycolysis, and enhanced rate of glycogenesis as evidenced by the higher amount of liver glycogen present after MO administration."Link
4.Associated topics: nerve-pain,numbness-/-tingling-(Neuropathy) — "The patient was successfully treated with topical peppermint oil [for postherpetic neuralgia, a complication of shingles].... The authors believe this is the first evidence of peppermint oil (or menthol) having a strong analgesic effect on neuropathic pain."Link
5.Associated topics: nerve-pain,numbness-/-tingling-(Neuropathy) — "Ameliorative effects of Ocimum sanctum [holy basil] in sciatic nerve transection-induced neuropathy...."Link
6.Associated topics: heart — "[I]dentifying... the effects of YYA [ylang ylang aroma] on blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) is important in order to demonstrate the effectiveness of YYA. The present results demonstrated that inhalation of YYA significantly decreased the systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Inhalation of YYA also significantly decreased the HRs in 10 leads.... In the present results, YYA caused a reduction of HR and BP, and a relief of the arousal level in healthy men. The present results show a sedative effect of YYA, and this study provides some evidences for the usage of YYA [as a] medicinal agent."Link
7.Associated topics: heart,hypertension — "Aromatherapy... [consisting of] a blend of oils of lemon (Citrus limonum), lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), and ylang ylang (Cananga odorata)... is effective in lowering systolic blood pressure and sympathetic nerve system activity... of heart rate variability."Link
8.Associated topics: nerve-pain — "Topical high-concentration L-menthol is the only established human experimental pain model to study mechanisms underlying cold hyperalgesia. We aimed at investigating the combinatorial effect of cold stimuli and topical L-menthol on cold pain and secondary mechanical hyperalgesia. Cold detection threshold and cold pain threshold (CPT) increased after L-menthol and remained high after the cold rekindling cycles.... Skin blood flow increased after L-menthol and stayed stable after cold cycles. Repeated application of cold on skin treated by L-menthol facilitated and prolonged L-menthol-induced cold pain and hyperalgesia."Link
