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.

I have had two back surgeries and have been depending on drugs from the pharmacy to deal with the discomfort for the past three years.

Starting with the Joy oil blend, Lavender, and then Peppermint, I use 2 drops of each essential oil on the foot Vita Flex point for the spine twice a day. I also use 5 drops each of Copaiba, Idaho Balsam Fir, and Frankincense in a gelcap. Additionally I use 2 drops of the PanAway oil blend twice a day.

I was very skeptical, as I was in a wheelchair. But within one week I was out of the chair and walking on a daily basis. I have been able to reduce the medicine from the pharmacy by 2/3 and hope to no longer have a need for it in the near future.

So not only have I felt less discomfort, but I am also not in need of mood enhancement anymore because I can now walk without discomfort and am less dependent on alternatives. I am thankful for therapeutic-grade essential oils.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: spine,back-pain — "We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
2.Associated topics: surgery-(Post-operative-recovery) — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
