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 have several nerve injuries that lead to daily chronic pain, sometimes very severe. I first started using a drop or two of Peppermint essential oil diluted in lotion applied to the areas that hurt. Within a minute or two the pain started to go away for me. It always lessened if it did not go away completely. Peppermint oil is very strong and can be hot on your skin. Always dilute the oil if needs be.

Having chronic pain leads to much inflammation in our bodies. I made a hydrosol solution (oil diluted in distilled water) in a glass spray bottle. I spray this on my areas that cause me pain at least once per day. It has taken the inflammation down greatly and I do not hurt as often. In this solution I use Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Lavender, and Helichrysum essential oils. I use 4 drops per 6 ounces of distilled water.

Remember water activates the oils. If you accidentally get any in your eye add any oil like olive, almond, grape seed, etc to your eye to dilute it. I was taking pain medication or pain patches daily. With these oils I use it has eliminated the need for these medications for me.
