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.

My chiropractor took an X-ray of my neck in May 2014 and noticed two bone spurs on C5 and C6 in the front part of my neck. He said that, as they would continue to grow, eventually I would not be able to eat. So I would definitely need surgery.

I happened to mention this to my friend who introduced me to therapeutic-grade essential oils, and she said to try Idaho Balsam Fir essential oil. So I decided to try this before resorting to surgery.

I put one drop on the front part of my neck and another drop on the back part of my neck where I thought the C5 and C6 were located. I did not use any carrier oil. I did this every morning without fail.

My November 2014 X-ray, which my doctor reviewed, indicated that the spurs had diminished a little bit... not grown! So I decided to try another 6 months of the essential oil regimen.

My X-ray in May 2015 showed that the bone spurs were completely gone! My doctor and I just stared at the x-ray, as we were both shocked. He was speechless!

I plan to continue x-rays annually to make sure that the bone spurs do not return. I feel that a busy life and the bad posture I had when looking down at a computer contributed to these bone spurs.

Nowadays I take better care of my body.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: spine — "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: bones-/-osteo — "Common herbs, essential oils, and monoterpenes potently modulate bone metabolism.... we investigated several common herbs rich in essential oils (sage, rosemary, and thyme) and essential oils extracted from these herbs and other plants (oils of sage, rosemary, juniper, pine, dwarf pine, turpentine, and eucalyptus) as well as their monoterpene components (thujone, eucalyptol, camphor, borneol, thymol, alpha-pinene, beta-pinene, bornylacetate as well as menthol) and found that they inhibit bone resorption.... Our study demonstrates for the first time that essential oils and monoterpenes are efficient inhibitors of bone resorption...."Link
3.Associated topics: bones-/-osteo — "Results of bone density, bone mineral content, bone tensile strength and histological analysis also showed similar trend of results, which supported initial observations of this study. It is proposed that hydroalcoholic extract of dried clove buds has bone-preserving efficacy against hypogonadal [hormonally deficient] osteoporosis."Link
