My sister-in-law was in a motor vehicle accident which resulted in a thoracic vertebrae compression fracture. The hospital Emergency Room sent her away with Tylenol with Codeine.
When I saw her a few hours after the accident she was sitting on the couch moving her upper body from side to side and back and forth. She was in much pain. I asked her if she would let me put some oils on her back, much to my surprise, she said "yes". I used the blend of Young Living oils called the Magic Relief blend. This blend is great for muscle tissue, bone regeneration, and a wonderful analgesic. It includes 8 drops of Spruce and Sandalwood, 7 drops of Idaho Balsam Fir, 5 drops of Hyssop, 4 drops of Lemongrass, 5 drops of Helichrysum, 4 drops of Wintergreen, 2 drops of German chamomile and 1 drop of Blue Tansy mix in 1 oz of V-6.
We placed the oils in the exact order given above (although we did not have the German chamomile or the Blue Tansy on hand). I had her lay on her tummy and I proceeded to feather (with my fingernails) the oils up her back, keeping the feathering close to her spine. Then I very SLOWLY and LIGHTLY moved the palm of my hand up her back, on her spine. When I got to the compression fractured vertebrae, she requested that I leave my hand on that spot because it felt so good. I left it there for a while, but began again to move my hand slowly up her spine. I did put a little more of the oil on my palm when I needed it to move fluidly up her spine.
After about an hour and a half she got off the table and was doing things to get her children ready for bed. I put more of the magic relief blend on her back before she tucked in for the night.
When I woke in the morning, I didn't know what I would find when I went downstairs to see her. I found her sitting at the dining room table with her laptop. She looked up at me with a big grin and said "Good morning, I have no pain." She kept the blend and would have her husband or one of her children apply the oil to her spine once a day for about one week after. Never did the pain return.
I would also like to mention that she was visiting us when this accident happened. She rode 6 hours home that afternoon- with no pain.
