I've used essential oils on myself (for tendonitis/nerve damage in both arms) and it did work. They relaxed the muscles and eased the pain. However, the oils alone would not have solved my problem, though they were helpful.
I used lavender, chamomile, and comfrey for relaxation, arnica for the nerves, valerian, clove, peppermint, spearmint, and one other that I can't remember for pain and ache. I've not used essential oils with animals, but I'm sure it would help. I've heard of them working well with dogs.
