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.


After learning that there are no "right or wrong" ways to use the oils, I was compelled to apply a few drops of the Joy essential oil blend to my lower back.

I have constant low back pain nearly all the time and sometimes it goes down into my right hip. I've tried using the PanAway oil blend, Peppermint and even Lavender from the Essential 7 Kit. Some relief but nothing great for me.

So I applied Joy one day and immediately had some "movement" back there in my spine. I felt the need to bend and stretch out my back. As I did, it made all sorts of cracking and popping sounds. In a few minutes my back no longer ached.

Now I rub a few drops of Joy to my lower back area every day!

I am not 100% pain-free, but it makes a HUGE difference and I hate to go one day without it!

1.Associated topics: muscle-pain,sciatica,back-pain — "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: sciatica — "Ameliorative effects of Ocimum sanctum [holy basil] in sciatic nerve transection-induced neuropathy...."Link
3.Associated topics: muscle-pain,muscles — "[T]he effect of essential oils on skeletal and smooth muscle...: The first type of effect on skeletal muscle involved a contracture and inhibition of the twitch response to nerve stimulation shown by a sample of clary sage, dill, fennel, frankincense, and nutmeg; ...lavender reduced the twitch response alone."Link
4.Associated topics: muscle-pain,muscles — "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
