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.

Over the past year or more, up until about 3 months ago, I was unable to get up from bed in the morning. I was also unable to go from sitting and putting full weight on my right foot. I would start walking and would hobble because it hurt so.

During that year or so, I had to give up my walking for exercise because it hurt so much. I never did go to the doctor, but in looking up the symptoms, decided it was inflammation of my plantar fascia causing plantar fascitis in my heel.

I decided to use Valor, Wintergreen and Peppermint in that order of application with a carrier oil to the bottom of my foot. I used 1-2 drops of each, layering them in that order. I knew that Wintergreen and Peppermint were anti-inflammatory and great for pain relief; and Valor was good for aligning things.

Over the several months I started using these oils, my heel issue was getting relief until one day it dawned on me that I wasn't hurting any more. What a relief to know I wouldn't have to live with this issue any more or have to consider purchasing "contraptions" for the foot for this issue.

I am so thankful for Gary Young and his dedication to giving us the very best therapeutic grade essential oils possible!
