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 had an important concert performace and had been practicing all week. However, 2 hours before the performance I got terrible menstral cramps and was doubled over in pain. I tried Lavender and Peppermint on my abdomen and back, but they didn't do much. I was contemplating some strong pain killers, however there were none in the house. I felt like I needed to be near a bathroom to either throw up or empty my bowels. I decided that the pain was too great to perform. In one last attempt, my sister insisted I try a few drops of Basil on my ankles, as it had worked for her cramps.

She had to literally place the Basil oil in my hands as I was not moving. I barely had the strength to reach down to my ankles. However, within minutes I felt a difference and could move from the fetal position.

Halfway through the concert, my sister asked how I was feeling and by then I had almost forgotten that I was inso much pain just hours before. Thank you God, Gary Young and Young Living for these therapeutic, EFFECTIVE natural painkillers.
