My opinion for birch oil is positive★★★★★
Being an old one, I suffered a lot from joint pains. The days were very torturing. One day my son came with birch oil in his hand in order to cure my joint pains. For few days, he used to provide me gentle massage with this oil and finally I got rid of the problem. Now, I donâ€™t feel any kind of pain in my joints. All credit goes to birch oil. By: Howard
