or fractured bones can occur anywhere in the body.
They can vary from simple greenstick fracture in a child
requiring minimal care to crushing injuries involving
multiple bones, tendons, and ligaments with complex
displacements requiring intense surgery, plates, screws and
months of physical therapy. There are a number of
types of fractures, we list here just a few of the common
Fracture : Bone is not broken completely through the
Fracture : in this the fracture is at a right angle to
the bone's long axis.
Fracture : in this at least one part of the bone has
Fracture : in this the fracture results in several
Fracture : It is a common overuse injury. It is most
often seen in athletes who run and jump on hard surfaces
such as runners, ballet dancers and basketball players.
Fracture : An open fracture is a fracture where the
broken bone is exposed. That is dangerous because of
increased chances of infection.
Signs that there is a fracture and medical attention
should be sought include:
pain, especially with movement of the limb
there is deformity in the limb or an open wound
there is difficulty in moving the injured limb or
numbness and tingling indicating nerve damage.
Essential oils of course cannot reposition or splint a
fracture but they can hasten the healing process and reduce
the discomfort during healing.

Karen - I am so excited to be able
to share this experience with you. I have the "Fire in
the belly" feeling now when it comes to the oils,` and I
will tell you why. Three and one-half months ago I
fell while exercising and broke my shoulder. It was
not just a "break", but an avulsion fracture. That
meant that the muscles supporting the shoulder literally
pulled the front bony part of the shoulder up (the fracture)
from the force of the fall. Needless to say, I lost
the use of my arm within minutes. After the hospital
visit and x-rays, we came home to wait for the orthopedic
surgeon to see me…in three days!!
We live in a small town. I was in shock and called my
daughter-in-law to come help me know what to do. I
have gluten intolerance, so the gut issues make it hard to
take pain meds. Guess what I had to use? That’s
right ,the oils. I thought, “This will be a real
test.” We applied Balance, then Lemongrass, then Cypress.
When I say applied, it was like putting salt and Pepper on
food. Not just one or two drops, but we shook it on. Immediately I felt better. I began to relax and spent
the next few days layering the oils every two to three
hours, my arm resting in a sling until the doctor was in.
When I got to the doctor’s office, he looked at the x-ray,
came in and explained that he needed to do surgery to put a
plate with six screws in to repair the damage so the muscles
would reattach properly. I asked him what my other options
were? He said I could wear a sling (the kind you have
to wear after surgery) for six weeks. He would x-ray
it every week, and if there was the slightest bit of
movement, we then would do surgery. I opted for that.
I used the oils frequently, according to how they smelled.
If one made me nauseous, I would use another. I used
Wintergreen for pain, Marjoram for muscle repair, Lemongrass
for ligaments, Cypress for circulation, Balance for
grounding and the emotions associated with not being able to
use my arm. I diffused Frankincense, Elevation,
and Citrus Bliss to help me be upbeat. I used Deep
Blue for everything it can do. I bathed in Lavender
and Cypress. And, the last two weeks I was able to get
Birch for bone. The power from that single oil was
amazing! I added a few drops of Helichrysum to the
Deep Blue for tissue healing.
Every week I had an appointment with the doctor and every
week he said next week we may do surgery, up until the fifth
week. At that visit he said, the bone is healed. Let
me have your sling. I want you to start physical therapy. He
then shook my hand and said I’m really glad we didn’t do
surgery. WOW! I have my testimony, I have full
use of my arm back and I have a Fire in the belly about
these amazing oils. I cannot NOT share what I know and
experienced and I challenge all of you to prove the oils for
your own selves.

My husband broke his toe. He
whimpered and hobbled around for a while and
at the end of the day chose to show me his
purplish-black swollen ugly toe. I looked
at him and shook my head as I asked why he
hadn't used any of the oils. He replied,
"OH YEAH! I guess I could do that." He
applied oils and within an hour remarked at
how the pain was gone and how he should have
used the oils immediately. 2 days later he
ran a 10k without any problems
Chris - A friend’s
mother-in-law fell and broke her shoulder. I just got a
message asking what oils and how often they should be used.
This is more complicated because she has dementia and they
are afraid she will get agitated in the hospital so she is
being sent home to heal. What would you suggest for
the shoulder and the dementia?
Tamalu - Alzheimer's and other dementia
be devastating, and can potentially complicate any
condition. Bottom line is love and patience, and our oils
can sure help with both of those! Dr Lin's Frankincense and
Alzheimer's research will be fascinating to see! I hope
everyone is planning to attend Convention!
I would diffuse Lavender or Serenity with Frankincense if
this was my mother. I would apply Balance, Deep Blue, White
Fir, Lavender and Lemongrass to the shoulder. Birch if she
has it. I'd let her recognize the pain leaving, and offer
Frankincense and Sandalwood for the cognitive issue. I would
also add Lemon to her drinking water for the cognitive
One thing that can be absolutely heartbreaking for a
family member is to see a loved one frustrated because
he/she knows that the brain and memory are not fully
functioning. Even though there are moments of total
immersion in the past or total forgetfulness, there are also
moments of complete clarity, and deep despair knowing that
something is wrong and completely out of control. When the
bases have been established, it is so much easier to keep
referring back to them "That smells so good; I can feel it
helping me", and "Can you feel it working, helping you
I remember going to trainings and being taught how to
deal with our lovely residents when they were combative or
disoriented. The best tool I found there was understanding.
It hurt me to learn that they would not know me. One day,
however, I had torn one of my contacts, so arrived at work
wearing glasses. One of my ladies stopped me right away,
asking "Did you get new glasses? I've never seen you wear
Kendra - This lady
