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.

In October of 2012 I helped lift a person off the ground and felt a pain in my shoulder that got increasingly worse. In December I had a sudden onset of severe shoulder pain in my right shoulder and moderate pain in my left shoulder. I could not dress myself, lie on either side, carry my grandchildren, clean my house etc. I eventually went to physical therapy and that helped to a point.

In April of 2013, I heard about essential oils that helped a man whose shoulders were severely injured by a horse. He used a mix of oils called "Patsy's Mix." (Clove, Copaiba, Frankincense, Idaho Balsam Fir, the PanAway oil blend, Wintergreen and about 2 ounces of Ortho Ease).

So I put 1/2 bottle of each of the oils with the Ortho Ease in an Ortho Ease bottle and put 1 squirt of the mix on my shoulders every morning and night and sometimes in the afternoon. It was probably the end of June when I began to forget about the pain and was able to lie on my sides some, hold my grandchildren, etc.

After I started the oils, I saw a orthopedic surgeon, who said there was nothing that could be done for my shoulder, but a replacement. I hope to hold off on surgery and maybe never need it. I have also used a few drops of each of Peppermint and Lemongrass on my injury.

The pain has been reduced using these high quality oils!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: osteoarthritis — "Ruxiang (Gummi olibanum), the dried gum resin of Boswellia carterii (BC) [frankincense], has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate pain and inflammation for thousands of years.... The data show that BC extract has significant anti-arthritic and anti-inflammation effects and suggest that these effects may be mediated via the suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines."Link
2.Associated topics: osteoarthritis — "We have demonstrated that Boswellia frereana [frankincense] prevents collagen degradation, and inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory mediators and MMPs. Due to its efficacy we propose that B. frereana should be examined further as a potential therapeutic agent for treating inflammatory symptoms associated with arthritis."Link
