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.

For more than 10 years I have experienced lower back pain -- every day of my life -- that I originally got from a hairline fracture from a car wreck I was in when I was 17. At one point it got so bad that I was taking 4 Lortab every day just to get through the pain.

Guess what?! I was a walking zombie! I never felt good, I was always tired, and I never had any energy. So nowadays they call that depression. Doctors put me on medication for depression. It worked a little but not enough to fix anything. So then I was on two medications.

About a year and a half ago (in June 2013), I was introduced to Young Living essential oils for a headache. My B.E.S.T. doctor allowed me to borrow her Peppermint oil, and it helped alleviate my headache within minutes. So naturally I was surprised.

I used Frankincense and Orange on my back before bed for 2 weeks, and I also started using Deep Relief (now my favorite).

Though essential oils are not a replacement for prescription medications, since September 2013 -- when I officially became a part of the Young Living family -- I have not felt the need to take any other pain meds. And now that I am out of pain, I no longer feel depressed, so I have no need for the depression meds either.
