Neuropathy and essential oils

Some great stories about the healing power of essential oils and neuropathy...
 So I sent my father the DDR Prime capsules. He suffers from severe neuropathy of the legs, which the doctors had told him will only get worse and worse. Nothing that can be done for this, no hope of improvement. Dad hasn't felt the bottoms of his feet for 9 years! ... After two months I was about to tell Dad to go ahead and stop taking it, when he suddenly told my mother that he has started to feel his feet! He didn't tell us for a few days because he wanted to be sure this was actually happening. IT IS HAPPENING!!! Any feeling he regains is a miracle...pure and simple...and he swears by the DDR Prime. - Kristen
A story from DoTERRA Now:
I had the greatest experience today! I met a gentleman at an expo last weekend who suffers from neuropathy. ...When he opened the door he could barely walk. His right foot was the worst and he could hardly put pressure on it. We whipped out our bag of oils and were armed and ready to go, however, we could not perform the "technique" that we had planned because it required putting pressure on the foot which he could not tolerate. Simply wiping the oils ever so softly over his foot made him jump in pain. So my friend did her best to massage the oils into his foot where he could stand it and wiping them over the part that was so tender. First she applied doTERRA's AromaTouch blend oil, second was Frankincense (which normally isn't used). After applying the frankincense he stopped her. He said he could actually feel it absorbing into his foot (we later realized that what he was feeling was the circulation he hadn't had in years) and finished with peppermint oil. This took all of 10-15 minutes. When we were done, he started applying pressure to his foot with his hands, then he stood up and put all of his weight on his right foot! He had not been able to do that for 20 years! It was very emotional for all of us.
A story on Our Oil Experience
[Wendy's] mother is 80 years old and has had cancer 3 times.  As a result she had severe neuropathy in her feet to the extent that she could hardly walk and was using a walker.  They got introduced to doTERRA and she began using frankincense & Balance oil blend on her feet daily...  Now, 2 1/2 months later she is walking without a walker.  In fact, they told us that she walked into the kitchen and one of her shoes was untied.  She stood on one foot and tied her shoe!!  They also told us that with the extra frankincense on her hands she would rub the back of her neck and neck. Results: scars from cancer surgeries gone-no more scarfs to hide the scarring!!  Wow!!
Holan's story from doTERRA Life:
I met David in 2009... At the time David was on 19 medications with diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid issues and had renal failure with dialysis. It was my start of learning the importance of living healthy, how painful diabetes is and how it affects the people around and also emotions. He was unable to walk for the most part, using a wheelchair whenever I saw him....
After Dr. David Hill used the Neuropathy Technique for ten minutes on David. You could see color of his legs come back. They called the people to feel his calf and it and is was soft. David who went to the class on a wheelchair was able to walk with a steady gait without a cane because he could actually feel his steps. From that day, his family continued to do the technique and his walking improved.
David says that he walks to the park with his newborn daughter. People go up to him and ask “Weren’t that the guy on the wheelchair?” Now David looks forward to fathering his daughter, and maintaining health is beyond him but for those around him.
doTERRA gave him more than an ability to walk. It gave him love, hope, dignity, and a mission to share with others.
Mindy at doTERRA Testimonials and Info shared the story of a friend with who has diabetic neuropathy in both feet and wears braces on her legs. See an "after" photo here.
I got a huge blister on my foot last week, caused by my metal brace. It is about the size of two dollar coins next to each other. By the time I noticed it, it was bleeding and a deep wound. In the past, I would go to the doctor, get some expensive prescription medication, including a special wound mesh that costs $100, and keep off of it for two months. Instead, I just used lavender oil and tried to stay off of it. It has now been a week and it looks so much better, I am amazed!!

I did a class one evening and a woman said what do you have for diabetic neuropathy and pain. I said, Aroma Touch blend. I put it on, rubbed up and down calf and on top and bottom of foot and around the toes that were hurting. 10 minutes later she said she could tell something was going on down there and then about 5 minutes later she said the pain had gone away. If I remember correctly the pain was gone for several hours. - Jodi
My dad is 70 and a type 2 diabetic. He had neuropathy in his legs..started rubbing DDR Prime on his legs daily and now it's gone. He does it everyday now. - Raquel
My husband forgot to refill his cymbalta for diabetic neuropathy. He was hurting bad. Rubbed some oils and massaged his calves and the bottoms of his feet and now he says he just wants to sleep. Oils helped him almost instantly. I followed this website but I couldn't find my AromaTouch blend so I used the Balance Blend. Massaged the calves then the bottoms of the feet and used cypress right after. both diluted with fractionated coconut oil. It was painful for him as I had to massage the hard bumps(crystals) and his calf was stiff, but he felt way better when I was done- Sapphire
I made a rollerball with frankincense, Roman chamomile, lavender, lemongrass, helichrysum, geranium, melalueca and fractionated coconut oil for my dad who has type 2 diabetes with neuropathy. He said he hadn't been able to feel his feet in two years. He had shooting pain with burning and itching that kept him up nights. He needed the aid of a cane and was looking into a wheel chair when I gave him the oil roller. I told him to put it on any diabetic sores and on his feet 2-3 times a day. With in two days he said he slept for the first time in ages. With in a week he was walking without a cane! He says he can feel his feet again! Even the sores that were so old he couldn't remember how long they were there went away in a short time. All of his doctors are amazed. - L.H.
Other recommendations for neuropathy:
 In addition, attributed to Dr. Hill is the following simplified procedure for neuropathy of the feet:
  • rub 2-4 drops Balance into the feet
  • rub 2-4 drops  each of Basil, Cypress, and Marjoram into one foot
  • finish with 2-4 drops Peppermint then cover with hot moist towel and perhaps a dry towel to keep the heat in for the longest time.
  • repeat on other foot.
