    I use this oil for any pain and the effect is immediate relief. I mix black pepper for circulation. Wonderful oil.

    It took a while to use this because the smell is not terribly appealing to me, even though it's kind of minty. However, the rewards far outweigh that minor issue. It has a substantial and fairly immediate effect on severe aches. I've used it for peripheral pain and muscular pain with outstanding results.
