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 case anyone needs a recipe, my husband has been suffering with gout. His ankle was huge. The doctor told him it was tendonitis in his Achilles tendon and gave him pain killers.

For 3.5 days, he kept his foot elevated and took the pain meds. There was no relief, and the meds just knocked him out. He did get some relief with essential oils for inflammation, but it was not enough relief.

I thought more had to be going on, considering my husband's sensitivity and level of pain. So I looked up various oils for gout and started applying the following:

Palo Santo
Balsam Fir
Peppermint (to drive the other oils in)

You can apply them in a mix or just layer them. The number of drops depends on the size of the area, the severity, and how many oils you're using. You can use a carrier oil.

I used 3 to 4 drops of each oil with extra-virgin olive oil (for spreadability) to cover the entire ankle, heel, front of the foot, big toe, and ball joint area. You can do this a set number of times a day or just when the pain comes back.

This regimen quickly made a huge difference for much needed relief. The pain meds (which weren't helping in the first place) were kicked to the curb! My husband has been coming to me and asking for the oils! Praise the Lord for His healing touch and for these essential oils!
