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 first introduced to Young Living Essential Oils in 2004. At that time I was taking 25 Advil a day and using an ice pack just to tolerate the pain I was having in my lower back, specifically at the L3, L4 and L5 segments. I had already had cortisone shots that only worked for approximately 24 hours each time.

When the PanAway essential oil blend (1-2 drops) was applied to my back, the pain was gone within minutes. I didn't care what the cost was, I knew I was going to get whatever that was what she was putting on me.

As I began using it I noticed the pain would come back within 30 minutes or so, however, learning that there was nothing in the oils that could hurt me I would reapply the oil. As I continued using the oil blend, I began to notice that the time between uses began to get further and further apart.

Today, September 2011, I still have residual pain from my back. However, I have found that if I use the oils ahead of a situation that would ordinarily cause pain that I can PREVENT it from happening.

Other oils I have used: the Valor and Exodus II oil blends and Peppermint - I apply a few drops of these oils over the L3, L4 and L5 areas also.
