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 brother has been suffering from back pain for years. He has a business doing construction work and was getting so bad he wasn't sure how much longer he would be able to do it.

In December 2015, I took a roller bottle filled with 15 drops of Copaiba, and 20 drops each of Wintergreen, Peppermint, and Idaho Balsam Fir (which I had read a testimonial about it being used to dissolve bone spurs). Then I filled the rest of the bottle with grape seed oil. Finally I prayed that these oils would work for him.

Immediately after he applied it he said his back felt fine! He had been to a chiropractor who said he wasn't able to adjust part of his back - he wasn't getting any movement. After using the oils, he is now able to adjust the area where there was no movement before.

It has now been 4 months and he said he is still pain free! He has since shared the oil combination with others (after praying over them) and it has also helped them too!

I am a licensed massage therapist and it was frustrating not being able to help him since we live over 700 miles away.

I thank God that He gave a way to help!
