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 have had sciatic pain for many years and have also had physical therapy for it. It never has seemed to disappear and if it did it would always come back. Well about a week ago it started up again. It can get so painful sometimes it is hard to walk.

OUT COME THE OILS! I looked in my essential oils quick reference guide to see what it said and I did a combo of things.

First I used 2 drops of PanAway essential oil blend and rubbed it on my right shoulder, rubbing it in one direction. Then I used 2 more drops of PanAway on my lower back and rubbed it up my spine.

Then I used 2 drops of Valor essential oil blend on my lower back and concentrated on the painful area. I then used two more drops on the top and bottom of my feet. I then layered 2 drops of Peppermint on top to increase circulation and to drive the other oils deeper into the tissue.

I am happy to say I have NEVER had this kind of relief from my pain!

After just two minutes I felt relief and have had it ever since. If the pain does reoccur, I know what oils I will be using!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: spine,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: 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
