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 have two herniated discs in my spine. The damage is irreversible, unless I undergo surgery, a very risky procedure which does not guarantee a total recovery and introduces foreign objects into my body. When this was diagnosed, the pain I suffered was excruciating, to the point of paralyzing me.

I am a single mother of three boys, who were toddlers 5 years ago, so it was impossible for me to rest. I tried many physical therapy treatments, went to see chiropractors, started on specialized exercises to strengthen my back and nothing seemed to work. I was doomed and the physician thought surgery was the only way out.

My finances were in crisis, I could not afford keep up that expense, especially because I wasn't feeling better. Miraculously this was when my mother bought some therapeutic grade essential oils, as an alternative, and began using Cypress oil on my back and feet.

Long story short, it's been 5 years, I did not have the surgery. I am pain free and Cypress has helped me to sooth the pain and eliminate my daily excruciating agony.
