Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I suffer from horrible bouts of sciatica that I developed during my second pregnancy and which never went away. It has been over four years, and it still comes and goes.

Recently I woke up in a lot of agony and was suffering all day, but I didn't take anything for it. My daughter and I fell asleep that night on the couch snuggling, and I woke up around midnight in terrible agony.

After struggling just to stand up, I was about to run to find something to bring relief. However, since I had just received my Premium Starter Kit and the oils were closer, I decided to give it a try. I will admit that I was a bit skeptical about how essential oils would work for me personally.

I opened my PanAway essential oil blend for the first time, dropped 5-6 drops in my palm, and rubbed it neat (undiluted) on my lower back, on my right hip (over the sciatic nerve that affects me), and down the top right butt cheek (sorry, TMI). I also inhaled it on my palms about 2-3 minutes (mostly because, after washing my hands twice, that bad boy still smelled strong).

I kid you not, within 6-7 minutes my discomfort was completely gone... like 100% better. I was walking and sitting fine. I am amazed at how fast it worked and that it actually worked!

I am so happy to be going to bed free of discomfort, and now I am wishing I had thought to do this earlier in the day. I will definitely be keeping PanAway on hand!
