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.

With her last pregnancy, my wife developed severe restless legs syndrome (RLS). We tried direct massage, which would often provide temporary relief. At the time we were not using essential oils.

After 16 months has passed since my son's birth, my wife only has sporadic problems compared to when she was pregnant. Last night was one of those nights.

My wife applied a few drops of both the Valor oil blend and Peppermint oils with about a quarter-size amount of carrier oil (fractionated coconut oil) directly over the area where she was experiencing discomfort.

Within 5 minutes, she said she was experiencing relief from the discomfort and slept soundly without being awakened by it.

I only wish I had those essential oils when she was pregnant because I know the RLS drove her crazy and kept her awake many nights.
