Note: 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. 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.
I have used PanAway, Deep Relief and Ortho Sport massage oils to calm the great aching in my lower back. I applied a few drops of these oils topically and breathed into the discomfort.
I sometimes alternated between these oils mentioned above for daytime and evening times. I also used the Valor oil blend as a layer oil. I would apply PanAway and then put Valor on top.
I also used a heating pad made up of rice and essential oils. This was a wonderful support! I used it a lot at night and it was so helpful. The key is to re-apply the oils when you need to.
I love being able to move freely again.

|3.||Associated topics: muscle-pain — "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|
