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 tweaked my lower back yesterday morning while getting ready for work. I knew that I had my PanAway essential oil blend on me and planned on applying it once I got to the office.

But once I got to my office, I searched my purse -- multiple times -- all morning for the bottle of PanAway. I finally broke down and took acetaminophen around 11 AM.

Well, that helped with the headache that developed throughout the morning and kind of eased my back... but not much. So I suffered through the rest of my day with an aching back until I got home later that night.

I still did not find my PanAway, so I grabbed my essential oils reference book and found Peppermint essential oil listed for pain and discomfort. I applied it right before bed, and within minutes I felt my back easing up.

I woke up this morning with no discomfort in my lower back! Oh, and by the way, I just found my PanAway... just 2 seconds after opening my purse. LOL!
