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 woke up in the middle of the night with my left thumb hurting. As I tried to flex it, it snapped, and I could not figure out what was going on. When morning came I wanted my husband to see what my thumb was doing, and nothing happened --just a normal bending thumb.

A couple of days later it did it again. It sure surprised the heck out of my husband as well as myself when it snapped as I bent it. In fact it was kind of funny because we had never seen anything like that happen. It would come and go. Then a month later my right thumb started doing it, and it just got worse and worse until it would lock in a straight position. When I used that hand sometimes the thumb would bend and lock in a bent position, and I would have to snap it back into place; that did not feel good!

One day I was in a store when it locked, and I had my other hand full. I asked the lady behind me if she could snap it back into place for me because it was hurting. When she pushed the thumb up it snapped, and It about set her off running. She could not believe what she saw or heard.
Then the thumb got to a point where I could not bend it at all, and, if it did bend and lock, it was very painful to get it straight; but it hurt worse to leave it bent. I used all kinds of oils on it, and nothing would relieve the pain or stop the thumb from locking up. Soaking it in hot water was the only relief, but that would help only for a short time.
It had been locking up on me for over a month when I found the right oil to use.

One night I had my Deep Relief and decided to put it on both of my thumbs as I went to bed. In the middle of the night I got up to go to the bathroom, and, as I pulled the covers back, my thumb locked. Reaching to unlock the thumb, it straightened on its own without any pain. Wow! I couldn't believe it happened that easily. I was able to flex it freely as it snapped back and forth. I was so excited about that, so I applied the Deep Relief again. When I woke up the next morning I was able to bend it freely -- except there was just a gentle snapping of the thumb -- and the pain was gone.

I kept applying the Deep Relief off and on all day, and it was like it never happened; it just acted like a normal thumb should. Wow!!! That was exciting to have my thumbs back to normal in such a short time, especially when the research I did on locking fingers and thumbs. It said it could take weeks to get back to normal.

This happened in October 2012. I have not had any more trouble with my thumbs since. It just took one day of using Deep Relief, and it's like it never happened! What more can a person ask for?
