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 began experiencing terrible pain in my right foot a few years ago. I realized that when I moved to Arizona and began wearing those cheap, flat (no support) flip-flops everyday, that I'd made a huge mistake. The flip-flops were quick and easy and one can wear them literally 10 months out of 12 in the Arizona desert.

Anyway, after wearing them for several years I began having terrible pain in my right foot and went to a podiatrist. Plantar Fasciitis was the diagnosis, and I needed special shoes (over $200), steroid shots in my foot to alleviate the pain (I had about 3 shots...they are painful themselves!!), and a daily dose of some kind of steroid for a year.

I changed my shoes (though I never purchased the high priced ortho shoes) and took the meds and they didn't help. My doc also explained that I needed to stretch the muscle again, and gave me some exercises to do. Since none of the pharmaceutical things that she mentioned worked, I might need exploratory surgery to see if something needed to be "corrected" inside my foot. YUCK!!

After nearly a year of taking prescribed pills for the pain and inflammation, I stumbled upon Young Living Essential Oils. And I only found them because I was searching for some pain relief for my husband's back pain! Long story short, I did some searching and saw that some folks had gotten relief from using oils to help their Plantar Fasciitis.

I began using the oils they mentioned. Twice daily I would apply RC and Valor (and later on when I found out about it, I added Wintergreen). I never went back to wearing the cheap flip-flops. I do wear sandals with more cushion...but not expensive orthotics.

After about 2 to 3 months of DAILY applications, I am telling you that the pain and stiffness was completely gone!! It's been over 6 months now that I've been pain free, literally!

Please, if you have had horrific pain in your feet due to this condition, stretch your foot regularly and apply these oils a couple times a day, more if you need to. The oils are therapeutic grade and won't hurt you. After applying and rubbing in the oils you can apply some coconut oil or the V-6 oil to keep the essential oils from evaporating from the surface of the skin.

I'm so thankful to have found these oils. I am able to walk without pain and stiffness and it's a great feeling!!
