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 sciatica for almost 20 years and was told I would just have to learn to live with the excruciating pain that accompanies this physical challenge. My sciatica has been eliminated by using Cistus, Peppermint and the Valor, PanAway oil blends.

That does not preclude or diminish the benefits of seeing a good chiropractor and a good massage therapist, or getting help from Raindrop Technique. But when I needed immediate relief in order to be mobile enough to make use of that help, I had to do something to reduce the pain, and these oils were miracles for me.

I used to go to a chiropractor 2-3 times a week. I did that for many years. There were times when I had to go in a wheelchair. There were times when it took me 10 minutes to get from my car to the waiting room, even with the aide of my husband. None of that changed until I started using Young Living oils. Now I see the chiropractor once every couple of months.

I haven't had sciatic problems for years. Pain free mobility was restored through God's grace manifest in these wonderful oils. I was an adamant skeptic, but I gave the oils a chance and they proved themselves. I know the oils work.

May you also experience the miracle of healing they offer and get started on your return to perfect health, which God intended for each of us from the beginning of creation.

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

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
