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.

I belong to a knitting, crocheting, and prayer team at Times Square Church in NYC. Our team has produced more than 800 hats, scarves, and sets for the homeless veterans in the VA as well as the victims of Hurricane Sandy on Staten Island and in Far Rockaway in 2012. I also belong to a knitting team at the Goddard Riverside Community Center who create knitted/crocheted items for sale in November 2012 to raise funds for the Senior Center.

Recently I knitted a batch of children's hats to donate for a 2013 Fund Raising effort for Maa Sa-Akhi, Ltd. Performing Arts Academy in Brooklyn, celebrating the success of over 1,000 students trained in percussion, piano, guitar, dance, voice, composition, and music theory.

It's now 2013. I have yarn all over my house and all kinds of ideas floating in my head for male/female/children hats, scarves and headbands for this year's donations and fund raising efforts. In the past few weeks I've become a human knitting/crocheting machine.

I recently experienced pain in the thumb, fingers, wrist and lower arm leading from my right hand. I assume is from too much repetitive motion, pulling, and tugging of yarn. This was the last thing I expected, as knitting and crocheting are both very relaxing and therapeutic for me; too much to let discomfort stop me from completing all the projects I have in mind for this year.

I recently read that Palo Santo was good for pain and inflammation. I read that Copaiba was also good for pain and inflammation. Since I had both oils in my closet, I decided to apply the Palo Santo neat first massaging my throbbing thumb, fingers, wrist and lower arm. I then covered the Palo Santo with an application of Copaiba neat on the same areas.

To my amazement, I not only had a very sound night's sleep, but the pain had diminished dramatically by the morning. So I am going to repeat this routine tonight. The more I read about and use therapeutic grade essential oils, the more excited I become over the miraculous ways they seem to act upon and benefit injured parts of the body.

Once again I am grateful to the Lord for this evidence of healing; appreciative of oilers who don't mind sharing their personal healing testimonials with the rest of us; and indebted to the technical staff that make access to these testimonials on the this website possible. I recommend using the basic search options feature of the website and putting in the keyword pain to see how others have used Young Living products with great success. If you're not afraid to act on the suggestions that apply to your problem, you too can be blessed by the results.
