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've never been shy about sharing that my husband Allen and I are recovering addicts. 💉 In fact, being in recovery is one of the reasons I am passionate about finding Young Living essential oils. 🎉 Let me tell you why...

Allen has, for some as yet unknown reason, started to have seizures. In the process he has fractured several vertebrae in his low back and is in a LOT of pain. His doctor prescribes him hydrocodone. 💊 Unfortunately it doesn't control the pain and concern over becoming addicted to the pharmaceutical painkillers.

So I started researching alternatives and found a DIY recipe for "morphine bombs" in an online essential oil group. I made up some capsules for Allen to try, like 50 of them!

HE JUST CAME TO ME AND ASKED ME TO MAKE HIM SOME MORE BECAUSE HE HAD USED THEM ALL!!! How awesome is that? 🎉 So here I am ready to make him more.

An added benefit is that he is much more pleasant to be around when he is not in constant pain. 💘

I use Copaiba, Frankincense, and Idaho Balsam Fir. Just put five drops of each in an empty 00 vegetable gelatin capsule. He usually takes two every 4-6 hours.
