Soothing, Cooling, Relaxing Blend of 9 Essential Oils
St. Jude’s Miracle Oil® is under the U.S. Trademark and Patent Office and protected under Trade secret law. The oil is soothing to the skin while providing a pleasing coolness.
Thank you for your interest in St. Jude’s Miracle Oil! This is the same product used in the documentary Got Pain? We have received hundreds of emails on the positive effect of our product. Thank you so very, very much!
Always consult your health care provider before starting any new treatment. We do not promise a cure or complete relief of pain.
We used the word ‘miracle’ due to our oils fast action and many uses. We obviously cannot promise miracles, those only come from God!
We recommend using the oil as an adjunct to other therapies such as stretching, massage, chiropractic and physical therapy. While the oil can reduce inflammation and decrease pain, it cannot correct structural misalignments or substitute for stretching overly tight tendons and muscles.
Animals and essential oils
Although we have photos of dogs that owners used SJMO oil product on, and we have articles relating to animals, we do not prescribe for animals, as many have different metabolisms of the kidneys such as cats. Dr. Janet Roark is a veterinarian and has dedicated herself to educating others about the safe and effective use of essential oils for animals.
Many times there are studies that discuss or suggest toxicity, organ failure and other suggestions with essential oils. And online speculation vs. research is important. For example, Lavendar was found in a rat study to not cause estrogen levels to raise.

There are articles regarding concerns of high levels of methyl salicylate in Wintergreen regarding animals. Mainly ingestion can cause severe poisoning and death.
Regarding research, Veterinarian Dr. Ken Tudor has research on essential Oils and Arthritis in Dogs. In one article, Dr. Tudor mentions Wintergreen oil. He even refers to a dog with cancer and his usage of Cassia, Cinnamon and Wintergreen:
Applied to painful areas, the combined effects of these oils have potent pain relieving qualities. One of my clients that used our Well Dog proprietary blend said that it was very helpful making her brother’s terminally ill dog much more comfortable in its final days. Applied to the belly skin, it relieved the pain of his abdominal cancer.
He also mentions Cassia, Cinnamon and Wintergreen can be very irritating to the skin if used undiluted. And animals are different. Cats have a different metabolism than other animals and should generally not be used on them.
Regarding actual scientific data, from Pet Health pharmacy, peppermint is attacked as being toxic or harmful to dogs.
This is challenged by a paper published in the Journal of Medical Mycology in April 2014 on Malassezia Dermatitis, a fungal infection of the skin that causes itching in dogs, reported on the effectiveness of a mixture of essential oils, coconut oil and sweet almond oil.
The blend of essential oils included lavender, bitter orange, oregano, marjoram, peppermint and Helichrysum italicum (a flower in the daisy family). The animals treated for one month with the blend of oils showed the same clinical improvement as the control group, treated with conventional medication.

For any types of pet food, supplements, or use of essential oils, please consult with your local Veterinarian.
Back to people
While the effects of the oil can be long lasting, they will wear off, as with any pain treatment. We recommend application 2-3 times a day. Applying down the spine before bed can be a significant help for pain and sleep. The oil may feel cool or warm after application. The oil has a strong smell, which most people enjoy. Occasionally people who smoke, use heavy perfumes or have olfactory issues due to spinal stenosis may not like the smell. Diluting with a carrier oil may decrease this, but may also decrease the effectiveness in pain relief.
