I have just mixed up some DMSO for a friend... 70% DMSO and 30% Olive Oil.
Unfortunately she has recently been diagnosed with Cauda Equina Syndrome after undergoing spinal surgery on her lower back. She cannot feel the outside of (most of) her left leg, and 'saddle area'.
She suffers from neurological pain, along with loss of sensation (and control) of various body functions.
--> I am therefore trying to find out what the best substance to mix with DMSO would be, for her condition... ? (Aloe Vera, Arnica, etc.)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
