Sorry, I haven't tried the oils, but I have decided to pay for a massage every few weeks as it helps so much. Mine is the myofascial type, and I try to be regular as I can really backslide if I'm not. I use my doctors compounded cream which I take with me. I have also used magnesium oil, and my friend recommends Epsom Gel Cream. She says it works really well for her. I guess you will just have to try whatever oil you feel is worth giving a go. Much luck @A MyFibroTeam Member 💜
