Buyer beware.

A few months ago I hurt my shoulder. It felt like it needed to be adjusted so I went to the chiropractor. The next day I carried some bags of salt downstairs. After that I was hurting. I went to my original chiropractor after the weekend and he asked me what I had done.

He did kinesiology and found 6 torn muscles all around my shoulder. I had to stay in bed to keep the pain down. I never take aspirin, advil or anything like that. I am 39 and was not over doing it so I thought. I hurt so bad from my hand all the way to my neck and around my shoulder.

I took capsules of oils and rubbed my arm with oils. I also did cold laser therapy. I iced 20 minutes, heated 20 minutes, 10 minutes ice, 10 minutes heat. I did this twice a day and it started to soothe my arm.

The chiropractor gave me a nerve formulation of Wintergreen, Peppermint, Roman Chamomile and Frankincense. It worked great but I needed it to be more cost effective since I used a lot. So I changed the formulation and mixed it in a 15 ml bottle:

* 70 drops of Elemi
* 55 drops of Cypress
* 70 drops of Roman Chamomile
* 45 drops of Peppermint
* 65 drops of Wintergreen

I put 6 drops of the oil mix in a capsule and took when the pain came back which was every hour for the first few days. Then I rubbed the Valor oil blend and this formula all over my arm. It took 1 month to totally heal. I had lost muscle strength and had terrible nerve upset. This oil formula was amazing! I always keep it on hand now.

1.Associated topics: muscle-pain — "We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
2.Associated topics: muscle-pain — "[T]he effect of essential oils on skeletal and smooth muscle...: The first type of effect on skeletal muscle involved a contracture and inhibition of the twitch response to nerve stimulation shown by a sample of clary sage, dill, fennel, frankincense, and nutmeg; ...lavender reduced the twitch response alone."Link
3.Associated topics: muscle-pain — "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
