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.

For months my husband has had leg cramps that would bring him up out of the bed they were so painful. The day after, his legs would always be very sore. We started putting Peppermint on his legs for the soreness which helped, but the bonus is the leg cramps have all but gone away. Occasionally he will have one, but Peppermint always helps.

When he rubs Peppermint on the back of his legs before bed he doesn't have cramps. And a few times he has forgot the Peppermint and still didn't have cramps.

All he does is take 2 drops of Peppermint (undiluted) in the hand, and then massage the back of his calf muscles.

Other oils known to help with leg cramps are the Relieve It, Deep Relief oil blends and Cypress, but it is always encouraging to know an oil that is more likely to be found in someone's cabinet can help too.
