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 daughter who is 12 was at school and got the muscle right above the knee (quads and tendons) pinched in-between the metal bars of the lunch table.

When she got home from school, the diameter of the bruise was about the size of a tennis ball. It was black and purple and just looked like it was bad. From about an inch or two above the knee and an inch below, from front to back, the tissue was hard, red, and a little inflamed.

Now my first thought was that I wanted her to heal and be without pain but not be on high doses of ibuprofen.

I took out my Balsam Fir, Wintergreen, and Frankincense. I used 2 drops each with coconut oil and massaged gently all around the knee. We did this 2 to 3 times a day. This took away the swelling and pain almost instantly.

By Sunday evening she was walking almost normally, and the bruise that should have turned into a disgusting sight was almost gone completely.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: muscles — "[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
2.Associated topics: muscles — "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
3.Associated topics: muscles — "In nine studies, Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) has shown effectiveness for arteriosclerosis, autism, Bells palsy, chemotherapy-induced toxicity, degenerative disc disease, detox, muscle wasting, muscular dystrophy, neuroblastoma, neuroprotection, oxidative stress, and spinal stenosis."Link
