OIls for Leg Pain? #legcramprelief

Press Sample.  All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

I've had a blood clot in my leg before, and I often get soreness and swelling in my legs as a result of that and general activity (or inactivity, as the case may be..) I don't want to always be taking pain relievers, so I've been looking at natural topical treatments for when the pain is mild.  Usually, I get relief from a magnesium oil spray, so I'm familiar with the concept.. but I was skeptical that I could get relief from a blend of essential oils.

Pure Plant Essentials Organic Formula Leg Cramp Relief is a blend of essential oils in Coconut Oil.  The two main oils, peppermint and marjoram, blend together and create the strongest fragrance.  It smells, frankly, like a Christmas Tree! I really like it. 
The two-ounce clear plastic container has a squeeze top dispenser, not a spray one as the Amazon description might lead you to believe.  The blend of oils was chosen for anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic and astringent properties to help with lymph circulation and swelling.  The oil is light, clear, absorbs quickly for an oil, and leaves no residue.  I don't think the aroma is strong - it's a sweet blend that smells subtle to me, unless I put it right up to my nose.

Every time I've used it so far, I've asked my husband to massage it into my legs so I can relax.  Something about the massage, the aroma, and the gently warming oils come together and I fall into the most delicious deep sleep!  When I wake up, my legs feel great - no pain.  I was very surprised!  I've tried it several times now, and each time is the same.  Massage - sleep - no pain!

I was inspired by the logo for this nailart! The base is Color Club Don't Kale My Vibe, and I created the flowers with a one-stroke technique using white and Sonia Kashuk Just Picked.  The yellow is Zoya Pippa, and the stem is a mix of black and OPI My Gecko Does Tricks.
For more information, or to purchase, you can find Pure Plant Essentials Leg Cramp Relief at Amazon, where it currently retails for $25.95.  They have a 365-day money back guarantee if you're not satisfied!

Have you ever used natural oils for pain relief?
