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.


I started suffering from sciatica about 3 months ago. I am seeing a chiropractor and am benefitting from his care.

About six weeks ago, I started using a blend of oils from a company that I find to have good quality oils. The blend has Basil, Helichrysum, Peppermint and Marjoram in a base of fractionated coconut oil. I apply 7-8 drops to the area of my L4 and L5 twice a day.

I had been using this for about a month when I ran out and went four days without it. By the fourth day, I was suffering terribly and wondered how I was going to make it thru the workday. Fortunately, my order arrived that day and I couldn't wait to get my shower and apply my blend!

The next day I was fine and have continued to be pain free. Now I must add, I am taking Meloxicam, which has been working great, but it is mainly addressing a different area of pain, not necessarily the sciatica. I won't run out of my nerve support oil again!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: sciatica — "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: nerve-pain — "The patient was successfully treated with topical peppermint oil [for postherpetic neuralgia, a complication of shingles].... The authors believe this is the first evidence of peppermint oil (or menthol) having a strong analgesic effect on neuropathic pain."Link
3.Associated topics: nerve-pain,sciatica — "Ameliorative effects of Ocimum sanctum [holy basil] in sciatic nerve transection-induced neuropathy...."Link
4.Associated topics: nerve-pain — "Topical high-concentration L-menthol is the only established human experimental pain model to study mechanisms underlying cold hyperalgesia. We aimed at investigating the combinatorial effect of cold stimuli and topical L-menthol on cold pain and secondary mechanical hyperalgesia. Cold detection threshold and cold pain threshold (CPT) increased after L-menthol and remained high after the cold rekindling cycles.... Skin blood flow increased after L-menthol and stayed stable after cold cycles. Repeated application of cold on skin treated by L-menthol facilitated and prolonged L-menthol-induced cold pain and hyperalgesia."Link
