Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I had been taking another product and developed what I believe was about to be a full blown bowel obstruction. The day my Young Living oils arrived at my house I was in intense pain in my upper right quadrant around where your gallbladder would be (except I don't have mine anymore).

The pain was so bad I thought I'd have to call my husband to come home. I also was very nauseated.

As soon as my oils arrived I grabbed the Peppermint...took a couple drops and rubbed it on the area and on my abdomen and also put a couple drops in water and sipped on it.

Initially the pain increased but I knew that meant the Peppermint had gone straight to the source. I grabbed the PanAway...took two drops and rubbed over the area and immediately is calmed down. I also sipped on my distilled water in my 64 oz cup with two drops Lemon in it.

I was uncomfortable the rest of the evening but not early as bad as before. That night before going to bed I had my husband massage my feet and over my abdomen with the Peppermint, Lavender, Peace & Calming and PanAway...I cannot remember if we used anymore of the oils out of our Kit or not.

The next morning the swelling in that area was gone along with the pain!
