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.


My first introduction to essential oils was in 2006 at a meeting for business women. She ordered a cup of hot water and proceeded to drop Peppermint oil in it. The aroma filled the area and I questioned her about it.

She asked if I would like to try it. Of course I did and I was hooked. Peppermint is so soothing to the digestive system. I've been using oils ever since and have my own essential oils reference book to look up protocols for whatever ails me or those that I know and love.

At night, within 30 minutes of falling asleep, I awake to my legs kicking and jumping. I just happened to have a bottle of Ortho Ease oil on my nightstand and started giving myself a leg massage. It seemed to calm the legs down a bit.

The next day I did some research and added the Aroma Siez oil blend to the Ortho Ease oil. I applied it all over my legs, top of feet and massaged on bottom of feet as well. In 10 minutes, I was fast asleep until morning.

I hope this helps someone who suffers from restless legs at night.
