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.

I suffered for 6 months of having sore feet, especially after exercise and first thing in the morning, before seeking advice from doctor. She diagnosed my condition as plantar fasciitis, and recommended stretching and massaging exercises.

For the first three weeks I diligently did the stretching exercises and used a small massage ball, several times a day. This did help, but feet were still stiff and sore in the mornings.

I saw on this website others had tried RC and Wintergreen oils. So for the past two weeks I have used RC every morning combined with my massage ball to assist stretching. My feet are so much better, especially in the mornings.

Additional keyword(s) assigned by the editor: foot, inflammation.
