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.
In June 2013, I caught my foot in a long skirt and fell hard into an asphalt parking lot. My right ankle bore my full weight as it caught on the curb. By the time I took a bath, I could barely get around.
As a young mother with 4 children, I immediately looked to my Young Living's essential oils for relief. I first tried the Deep Relief roll on, which wasn't very effective. Next I tried Cypress and Frankincense together (about 3 drops of each), and I could feel some relief as it worked into my joint. I did this about every hour until bed.
When I awoke the next morning, my ankle was still swollen and painful, but being somewhat concerned about cost, I switched to Cypress and Elemi (poor man's Frankincense) again every hour and saw the pain and swelling Improve throughout the day. By 36 hours after my fall, I could walk normally.
I credit the oils for my quick recovery. However, I wish I had realized how jarred my ribs were. My ankle pain was the most intense, but I wish I had used the same regimen on my ribs. I still have some discomfort where they are not quite right. I believe that using oils frequently with intense situations, such as an injury or the beginning of an illness, works well.
