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 damaged the meniscus of my right knee some 18 months ago. An orthopedic knee brace and glucosamine helped but I still had severe pain. I could not put full weight on the knee by standing while lifting the opposite leg off the ground or putting weight on it by kneeling. Also, my big toe joint on my right foot seemed to be locked with arthritic-like pain that I was unable to curl the toe inward and the pain was severe and affected my walking gait.

I ordered the Young Living 9 Essential Oils Kit as a new member, knowing little about essential oils other than testimonials I read at this website. I learned of benefits to others of PanAway and Peppermint oils so tried them immediately upon receiving the kit.

Within two days my pain in both areas had improved about 80%. I continued to use for a few more days--the toe seemed to require more attention. I still apply a little oil to the areas about every 2 weeks, as a peace of mind insurance rather than a necessity.

I am now able to kneel on the right knee and stand with full weight on it while balancing with my left leg raised completely off the ground (first time in over 18 months!). I have no pain in the toe joint and can do a full curl as for any unaffected toe.

I can also walk long distances without pain and without a brace, or cane, and no more cost of pain relief pills of Tylenol, Ibuprofen, and glucosamine.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: joints,arthritis — "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: joints,arthritis — "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
3.Associated topics: joints — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
