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.

My mother-in-law has suffered with the loss of sensation in her feet for MANY years. She is very seldom without her walker.

I asked if she would be open to trying something different, and she agreed. I mixed up a blend of Frankincense and Lemongrass essential oils in a base bottle of Ortho Ease Massage Oil and sent it down to her. (NOTE: I added about 35 drops of each to the bottle of Ortho Ease. When mixing up an additional batch I also added 30 drops of Cypress essential oil.)

After applying it twice a day regularly to her feet and calves -- about 2 weeks in -- she was in the grocery store with her walker. About halfway through, she said she had awful pain in her feet... AND SHE WAS SOOOO EXCITED! She has not had feeling in her feet in so long.

The next day she brought her walker into the kitchen with her in the morning and left it there the rest of the day. Her feet felt so wonderful she didn't feel she needed it!

As some wonderful side effects... the horrible discoloration on her calves has disappeared, and the horrible scaliness on her legs is completely gone on one leg and close to gone on the other!
