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.


One of my co-workers was coming down with a migraine headache which she suffers from due to an automobile accident (so it is not a disease) I shared one drop of Peppermint oil with her and this is the result and her testimonial:

I have had migranes headaches for almost ten years. I have tried all kinds of things over the years, including preventative prescription drugs, massage, exercise, meditation, yoga, and always as a final resort, pain medication. My migraines last from 2 to 3 days. They are excruciating and debilitating.

Today, October 20, 2004, marks a truly incredible breakthrough for me. I woke up this morning with a headache that had the warning signs of an impending migraine. I tried my prescription of which you can only take 2 in a 24-hour period, and they have to be 12 hours apart. The headache persisted through the afternoon. Although I was very skeptical, I tried one drop of Peppermint oil on my tongue at the urging of a friend, Jan Gridelli. Within minutes my headache was gone. This has never happened before.

I had given up hope of anything helping other than my current regimen. I am ecstatic, and thankful beyond expression!
