Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

Ever since a young age, I had a bad habit of holding my sneezes. I actually thought as a child that I should hold my sneezes to not spread germs. Many years and sneezes later in 1997, I held a sneeze back, popping a disc out in my back. Ouch!

What happed next was one of life's learning experiences. With the disc out in my back, I could not stand up anymore and walk. I was in a chair to sleep at night for several days since I could barely move; the pain was unbearable!

After going to the chiropractor who told me he could not help, I went to the hospital. The surgery was a success, and I was told to never hold my sneezes again.

Many years and a few unwanted pounds later, I started having back pain again. I lost a few pounds, but I still would have difficulty getting up in the morning.

In 2012 a coworker's wife talked to me about Lavender essential oil for sleep problems due to my back pain. This was my first introduction to essential oils. I tried Lavender and liked the smell, but I was still waking up many times during the night.

In March 2014 I received a CD by mail, set it aside to listen to in my car, and then unfortunately forgot about it. Then a few months ago I saw that CD that I had put aside, and I finally listened to it. Wow! I immediately ordered the kit from Young Living, which included Stress Away essential oil blend.

The next day my back was killing me, and I had a hard time even walking! So I saw the Stress Away and decided to try it. What did I have to lose at this point? I put a drop on my wrist, and 15 minutes later my pain went from a 10 to a 3.

Now I do not claim to treat, cure, prevent, or mitigate any disease, but this essential oil blend helps me a great deal. I still wonder why Stress Away helps me, but I am grateful that it does. I guess you never know what your own body may need!

On this note, I want to thank those who put up this website, What a wonderful concept! I also want to thank Monica Edwards for your patience and our long talks.

And blessings to you, Gary Young, for all that you are doing to help us all live better in our time of pain. And thank you, Lord, for showing me the path! Amen.
