During ballet class was when the bursitis flared the most and that seriously can be unbearable. I'd massage deeper rub on my knees before and after every class and had little to no problems with the pain. If I ever had a tough practice or rehearsal and would feel any muscle soreness I would also apply this oil to the muscles and find sweet relief. Another way I used this oil was for really bad menstrual cramps; I started to apply Deeper and that helped a ton.
Here is the write up from the book, "Butterfly Miracles with Essential Oils" by Laree Westover
INGREDIENTS: birch, eucalyptus, helichrysum, fir, lemongrass, myrrh, peppermint, spruce, wintergreen
AFFINITY FOR: muscles, bones, nerves
APPLICATION: LeDeeper should be diluted whenever it is applied to the skin. This is an excellent oil for use in the bath.
PHYSICAL ASPECTS: LeDeeper contains penetrating, anti-inflammatory oils which aids in relieving pain that is deep in the tissues and nerves. It is useful for sciatica, arthritis, osteoarthritis, the pain of osteoporosis, sprains, and injuries where there is bruising and/or nerve damage.
LeDeeper increases blood and lymph circulation to the extremities, making it an effective choice for neuropathy and fibromyalgia. This blend often brings instant relief when applied to the abdomen and back for pre-menstrual cramps. Other important uses for LeDeeper are pain relief with shingles and bursitis.
Since my own family is prone to injuring themselves seriously and regularly, this blend has been worked with and "tweaked" until it is near perfection, in my opinion.
