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.

A doctor's visit without insurance cost us $55, and the medical advice was to wrap the knee with an ace bandage. Ugh! That didn't stay on, so we purchased a compression sleeve for $49. We saw no improvement for two months; it just worsened!

I called my sponsor and asked what we could do. She suggested we purchase the Starter Kit that I should have had from day one. It had everything we needed to start the essential oil treatment that she recommended.

I wish I would have taken a picture, because at its worst it looked like a baseball sticking out from the front/side of his knee. After a week, the swelling started to go down. He applied morning and evening a layer of 3 drops of the Valor oil blend, 5 minutes later 2 drops of Peppermint, and then 2 drops of the PanAway oil blend.

This is our first experience with treating an ailment. The swelling was completely gone in less than 3 weeks! We since have incorporated Young Living essential oils in our daily life. These are incredible oils.

Thank you Gary!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: joints,osteoarthritis — "Ruxiang (Gummi olibanum), the dried gum resin of Boswellia carterii (BC) [frankincense], has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate pain and inflammation for thousands of years.... The data show that BC extract has significant anti-arthritic and anti-inflammation effects and suggest that these effects may be mediated via the suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines."Link
2.Associated topics: joints,osteoarthritis — "We have demonstrated that Boswellia frereana [frankincense] prevents collagen degradation, and inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory mediators and MMPs. Due to its efficacy we propose that B. frereana should be examined further as a potential therapeutic agent for treating inflammatory symptoms associated with arthritis."Link
3.Associated topics: joints — "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
