Sprains, Strains & Essential Oils
It was a scene directly from Home Alone where the bad guys are being duped by Kevin. He sets out his hot wheel cars and they rush into the room, unaware that he has set the trap, and they step on the little four wheeled monsters to fall flatly on their backs.
After 6 years of having little boys in my house, I finally relived this scene in my own home. It was bound to happen so WHY AM I SURPRISED? Instead of falling on my back, I fell forward with my knee and wrists catching the brunt of my fall. I fell so fast, that I was kind of in shock as to what actually happened. Then I noticed the hot wheel car and it all clicked. Within an hour I was sore. My entire right side of my body was in pain from my neck and back, to my wrists and on down to the ankles. My right wrist was giving me the most pain, so much so that it was difficult to dress myself, cook dinner and apply make-up for my date that evening. My husband was worried I may have fractured it. That’s when I went on the hunt for some relief from my Essential oils kit. Panaway to the rescue! PanAway® was created by Gary Young following a severe injury to the ligaments in his leg. PanAway is soothing to the skin while providing comforting warmth to muscles after exercise. It feels a lot like IcyHot when applied.
The main ingredients are Clove, Helichrysum, Peppermint and Wintergreen. Wintergreen essential oil is often used for massage, and similar to cortisone. Clove contains eugenol which is used by Dentists to numb gums and Helichrysum soothes local discomfort. It’s like aspirin in a bottle without the side affects.
Uses for this amazing blend of oils include massage, injured joints and muscles, growing pain relief, back and spinal pain, head pressure and it can even be used on pets for joint discomfort.
I applied 1-2 drops of Panaway to my right wrist 6 times within a 24 hour period and by the next evening I was using my chef’s knife, slicing raw sweet potatoes. I was pain free! Even though I am a distributor of Young Living oils and believe in their effectiveness, I was literally amazed at how fast and how permanent the results were.
