On the weekend my husband played golf and found the back of his arm and elbow were rather sore. So after a couple of applications of Deep Blue Rub he could fully stretch his arm out with out any discomfort at all. This a rather surprising to him as he has been a bit skeptic about how my oils can do what I say they do. But he has had a few experiences now and I think he is really coming around to knowing they are safe and have great results. I even heard him mention to our neighbor how good the rub had worked and suggested that he use it too.
I have another friends husband has used the oil on a slipped disc in his back. And his physio asked him "What he was doing the help himself as the work he was doing shouldn't have improved his back as quickly as it was". When he told his physio it was "An Essential Oil" the physio told him "to keep doing what he is doing and he will be back to normal before he knows it". My friend did comment that her husband was back at squash only 3 weeks after he hurts his back, thanks to the help from this awesome essential oils rub.
Ive also used this rub on another friends ankles. She has torn the ligaments in both of them and could no longer wear heels and could hardly walk let alone go up and down the stairs she needs to in her house, So after a week of using this rub a couple of times a day and with some physio she is walking easily on the stairs and she mentioned yesterday that she went out the other day with a small heel and was surprised that she went all day at work with these shoes and no issues with her ankles. The big test for her will be on the weekend as she is the Step Mother of the Bride and will try wearing a med size high heeled shoe. Good Luck Kate, Rub up with Deep Blue.
