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.

A friend sent me this testimonial, and it is too good not to share. She wrote:

In 1997, I was thrown from my horse and broke my back in two places, crushing 7 vertebrae. I have had two surgeries. I have rods in my back from L-1 down, and the discs were removed. I was to have the second set of rods installed in 2000 but had lost my health insurance. I was waiting until I could turn 65 and then get on Medicare so that I could have the surgery. I could only lie down one way, and that was on my back; otherwise I suffered excruciating discomfort.

Then I was introduced to essential oils. Four oils in particular have completely halted all aching in my back. For the first time since 1997, I am able to lie on my stomach and on both of my sides. You have no idea how I feel after years of agony and not getting a full night's sleep for years.

I sleep with a huge square pillow under my knees when I lie on my back. If I turn over on either side, I put the pillow between my knees. When I lie on my stomach, I put the pillow under my tummy.

Back to the essential oils, I rub them on the spine area of my foot, one by one. Then I rub two of them down my spine. I also get what is called the Raindrop Technique. I have no plans of going under the knife again as long as I am free of discomfort with these essential oils.

The oils I use for my back are the Valor and PanAway essential oil blends. The four I use on the spine area of my feet are the Valor, PanAway, Raven and RC blends. I also take NingXia Red juice for my immune system. Thank you so much for these gifts of nature.
