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.

After trying everything to ease the discomfort caused by my herniated disc, a friend linked me to What a lifesaver!

I have a herniated disc (L5-S1) causing severe sciatica. The pain was so intense that my body rebelled. My foot actually went numb to protect me from the torment!

I tried chiropractic care every other day and acupuncture weekly, in addition to taking hydrocodone. Nothing seemed to help. For two full months I had foot drop (a.k.a. drop foot), as well as total numbness (a.k.a. peripheral neuropathy) in my foot!

Then one day I tried the "morphine bomb", which is a homemade recipe of therapeutic-grade essential oils. Seriously, how amazing is this? Within only 3 days, the feeling came back into my foot! This is amazing!

The morphine bomb recipe calls for equal parts of Copaiba, Frankincense, and Idaho Balsam Fir. I simply bought the three bottles of essential oil and mixed them together in an amber jar.

Then, using gelcaps or vegetable capsules, I simply made 2 capsules a day, one for morning and one for night. I did not make too many at once, as the capsules tend to disintegrate and leak.

My sweetie even tried the morphine bomb for his muscle strain, and overnight his discomfort was gone too. We love this totally natural relief and will never be without this remedy again!

I would like to eventually have another MRI to compare and see if these essential oils have improved my herniated disc, but I do not have the funds at the moment. In the meantime, I can walk again, and I can feel my foot... finally!

If you are in agony, give it a shot. What do you have to lose?
