It increased the blood circulation and relaxed the pain. I can't say if it is actually useful for pain relief, but it is great for massaging.
I am in love with this oil. As I am a busy woman so that stress is always here. I use it on my body when aching, headache, sleeplessness. When I'm tired it just throws away all my tiredness and helps me sleep sound. This is my second time I purchased, will purchase again and again.
