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.


Two years ago, I was suffering from sciatica nerve pain in my right leg. I was diagnosed with 2 herniated discs. I underwent spinal surgery, doctors put in 6 screws to separate the vertebrae.

After 10 months, I underwent a second surgery because one of the screws broke which doctors removed to implant bone screws instead of screws. From the beginning, back pain was intense. After learning about essential oils, I started using them and the results have been remarkable.

Eight months later I used some of the oils contained in the extraordinary Raindrop Technique every day, like the PanAway, Valor, Aroma Siez oil blends, Wintergreen, Cypress, and also I included Frankincense oil too.

If I had known essential oils existed I would never have surgery. For moments of tension and stress working long hours at the computer, sitting or standing for long periods of time, I use the RutaVaLa, Deep Relief and Stress Away Roll-On blends which help to relieve the pain.

Thanks to Gary Young for all your valuable knowledge!
