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 was electrocuted in 1986 and my left arm was disarticulated. I suffered with pain in my left shoulder ever since.

In February 2012 the nerve pain escalated tremendously. I was also experiencing severe tendonitis in my right arm (from 26 years of overuse).

By July I was taking 3600mg of Neurontin and 30mg of Percocet daily. I was also using narcotic pain patches. I was mentally compromised by the prescription meds and yet received almost no pain relief.

In October I was introduced to the Copaiba essential oil. The owner of the local health food store started massaging the oil into my right arm and I received almost immediate relief from the tendonitis pain. She also started putting Copaiba into capsules to take by mouth. I gradually noticed relief from the nerve pain in my left shoulder.

By February 2013 I was off the narcotic pain patches and was able to reduce my daily dosages of Neurontin to 800 mg and Percocet to 15mg.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: nerve-pain — "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
2.Associated topics: nerve-pain — "Ameliorative effects of Ocimum sanctum [holy basil] in sciatic nerve transection-induced neuropathy...."Link
3.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
