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 am happy to report that Frankincense released my seized neck muscles with one application. After months of searching I found a fellow oiler's testimonial about Frankincense releasing tight neck muscles, so I decided to try it. I applied 1-2 drops just below the collar bone to behind my ear.

Prior to this, I tried the Deep Relief, Aroma Sieze, and PanAway blends in additional to Peppermint. All amazing oils, but none of them released the locked muscles on either side of my neck. My pain radiated from below my collar bone to behind my ear. Some movements cause shooting pain, but mostly it has been a major pain in the neck. I've had to back off all activity, which has been very difficult.

I've tried massaging the area myself, but the muscle was so tight, it was very ineffective. Last week my chiropractor tried to lengthen the muscle. This caused intense pain in my upper frontal lobe!

I've read many articles about how to unlock muscles that are seized. Basically, the muscle has to relearn how to relax. Its called muscle memory. Muscles that are in a tense state for a long duration will stay tight until they relearn how to relax. I am so happy to say that Frankincense has "taught" my muscle how to relax! Now I can cancel tomorrow's appointment with my chiropractor and spend time with my kids.

Its time to order more Frankincense! I love Young Living Essential Oils!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: muscle-pain — "We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
2.Associated topics: muscle-spasm — "Peppermint oil is harmless and acts locally to inhibit GI [gastrointestinal] smooth muscle contraction.... Peppermint oil solution administered intraluminally can be used as an antispasmodic agent with superior efficacy and fewer side effects than hyoscine-N-butylbromide...."Link
3.Associated topics: muscle-spasm — "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
4.Associated topics: muscle-spasm — "Anti-inflammatory, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antimicrobial, antioxidant, carminative [flatulence] and immunomodulatory properties of caraway suggest that it might exert beneficial effects on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).... CHE and CEO [caraway essential oil] at all doses tested were effective in reducing colon tissue lesions and colitis indices and the efficacy was nearly the same when different doses of plant fractions were administered p.o. or i.p..... These data suggest that caraway fractions are both effective and possess anti-colitic activity irrespective of the dose and route of administration."Link
5.Associated topics: muscle-spasm,muscle-pain — "[T]he effect of essential oils on skeletal and smooth muscle...: The first type of effect on skeletal muscle involved a contracture and inhibition of the twitch response to nerve stimulation shown by a sample of clary sage, dill, fennel, frankincense, and nutmeg; ...lavender reduced the twitch response alone."Link
6.Associated topics: muscle-pain — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
