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.

About 3 weeks ago, I started having pain radiate down my left leg. I am very familiar with sciatica pain, I had surgery 20 years ago for the same problem, only on the right side.

I used the Ortho Ease lotion on my left leg, from my hip to my ankle and was amazed to see that it relieved the pain for a couple of hours at a time.

An MRI revealed a protruding cervical disc, so I am also receiving care to help straighten a curved spine and using the Raindrop oils to help keep it straight!

Once I started using the Raindrop oils, I slept much better at night -- at least an hour or two longer than I had been before the pain would wake me up again.

I'm slowly but surely seeing the nerve pain leave, and I am very thankful that I had the knowledge and the oils when this happened! It truly got me through the weekend.

I also added NingXia Red juice for the inflammation!

I love these oils!
