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 was in a major vehicle accident in August 1998. Another car crossed my path (I was doing 25 and she was doing 45 mph) resulting in me getting T-boned. Before our vehicles came to a complete stop, a third vehicle (stopped at a stop sign across the road) was involved in our collision. She was in a coma for 6 months-woke up and is living her life with assistance from her family. The third person has had back/neck/knee issues since then. Although I walked away, I have neck and back problems on a daily basis.

I get migraine headache's several times a week, and sometimes they are so severe that I literally can not function, can not stand any light or sound, and a lot of the time am sick to my stomach. I was prescribed some high dose medication to deal with these migraines because nothing else I tried would work. I even went as far as to having steroid shots in my neck - which were very painful and only worked for a short time. Now when I start to get a migraine, I reach for my Lavender and Peppermint Essential Oils. I apply them generously to my forehead, temples back of neck and behind the ears. Most of the time this is all I need and the migraine subsides. If my back, neck or knee are hurting, I apply Peppermint - which brings almost instant relief.
