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.

My wife had suffered for many years with arthritic like flare-ups in her right knee with attending pain and feverish tissue. She would get mixed results in seeking relief by using Advil and Aspercream. Additionally, as a child she had surgery on her left foot and ankle as a result of polio complications. Whenever she stood and walked for long periods during the day, the ankle would swell and hurt.

When I became a Young Living member and received my 9 Essential Oils Starter Kit, I learned of the benefits of PanAway and Peppermint and used them successfully for a knee and toe problem that had plagued me. In spite of the help I had gotten from the oils, my wife remained skeptical until she had a knee flare-up. She asked me to put the oils on her knee and the next morning the pain and fever were gone.

I didn't know if the oils would help her surgically repaired ankle or not, but she was now open to trying the oils, so we began applying PanAway and Peppermint oils to the ankle. Within a couple of weeks, she showed me her ankle after a particularly long day of walking. She was delighted---none of the usual expected swelling she had lived with for years.

We continue to put the oils on the ankle fairly regularly, but will begin to taper off to see if the effects can be maintained with less oil application. But for over a month now, she has had no knee or ankle problems.
