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.

A good friend of mine just went through a heart wrenching bout with multiple myloma, a cancer that attacks the bone marrow. He spent a year going through chemotherapy and radiation treatment with an amazing attitude and humor despite the fear and physical stress this disease faces one with.

The wonderful news was that he came through it all and has been given a full remission status. Here is where this testimonial begins. This man is an extremely stoic, tough, and humorous person, so when his wife let me know that he was in terrible pain with the neuropathy in his feet that comes after chemotherapy, I suggested the oil blend that is listed in the essential oils reference book for neuropathy.

I ordered Geranium and Spruce oil and during a particularly painful time she used the blend on his feet. The very next morning, unsolicited, he described his pain as being half of what it had been for the last several months.

Actually, he said something like, "I don't know what that voodoo stuff that Julie gave you was, but my pain has been cut in half". They continued using the blend and over a few months his pain not only lessened, but the area that it covered had shrunk as well.

He is now only using the blend on an as needed basis when the pain reoccurs. When these oils bring relief to those you love, you truly understand how important they are.
