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 have a lower back issue which, when it gets bad, causes me to have a hard time standing up straight. I walk 5 miles every day, and, when I get home and cool off, my back really starts giving me fits.

I go to a chiropractor religiously and have been doing so for the last 5 years. About a month ago I made an essential oil rub consisting of:

10 drops PanAway
10 drops Copaiba
10 drops Valor
10 drops Peppermint
1/4 cup coconut oil

Since using this twice a day -- in the morning after I shower when my back is still warm and at night before I go to bed -- I can really tell the difference. I noticed that I am not seizing up and can walk straight again.

When I told my chiropractor what I was using, he told me not to stop. I love, love, love essential oils!
