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.

My 83 year old father was in severe pain this past Christmas when visiting us. He would wince each time when rising from or lowering into a chair. Dad had been recently diagnosed with 7 bulging discs in the lumbar region. His pain had become so severe that he wasn't eating and wouldn't even go outside for his mail.

I offered to do a Raindrop Technique on him. He was willing to try anything and agreed. I measured him before and used the nine Raindrop oils. I did not have any extra oils on hand but thought it might help him. When measuring at the end, his spine had decompressed almost 1/2 inch. I was very surprised that he would change that much at his age!

After leaving he said he felt much better than before the RT. I checked with him again the next morning and he said that he felt "like a new least 80% better". He said there were a few twinges but nothing severe.

I have since ordered Helichrysum (first recommendation in essential oils reference book for bulging discs), PanAway and Deep Relief. He uses the Deep Relief roll-on daily as needed along with a roll-on of Helichrysum (20 drops + V-6 to fill the 5ml bottle). I feather 1-2 drops of Helichrysum and PanAway on his spine each time I do the weekly Raindrop . We have been doing this for 4 weeks and he has resumed all his previous activities and is back to normal.

He had already scheduled a visit to a spine doctor who recommended cortisone injections to help relieve the pinched nerves but after the visit he decided to cancel the procedure and will instead do the Raindrop Technique weekly.

I am very thankful to Young Living for these oils!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: spine,back-pain — "We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
2.Associated topics: nerve-pain — "The patient was successfully treated with topical peppermint oil [for postherpetic neuralgia, a complication of shingles].... The authors believe this is the first evidence of peppermint oil (or menthol) having a strong analgesic effect on neuropathic pain."Link
3.Associated topics: nerve-pain — "Ameliorative effects of Ocimum sanctum [holy basil] in sciatic nerve transection-induced neuropathy...."Link
4.Associated topics: nerve-pain — "Topical high-concentration L-menthol is the only established human experimental pain model to study mechanisms underlying cold hyperalgesia. We aimed at investigating the combinatorial effect of cold stimuli and topical L-menthol on cold pain and secondary mechanical hyperalgesia. Cold detection threshold and cold pain threshold (CPT) increased after L-menthol and remained high after the cold rekindling cycles.... Skin blood flow increased after L-menthol and stayed stable after cold cycles. Repeated application of cold on skin treated by L-menthol facilitated and prolonged L-menthol-induced cold pain and hyperalgesia."Link
5.Associated topics: helichrysum-oil — "...its flowers and leaves are the most used parts in the treatment of health disorders such as allergies, colds, cough, skin, liver and gallbladder disorders, inflammation, infections and sleeplessness... In vitro studies characterized Helichrysum as an antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory agent. Its flavonoids and terpenes were effective against bacteria (e.g. Staphylococcus aureus), its acetophenones, phloroglucinols and terpenoids displayed antifungal action against Candida albicans and its flavonoids and phloroglucinols inhibited HSV and HIV, respectively.... Regarding Helichrysum italicum in vivo activity, the highlight goes to ...the anti-inflammatory properties exhibited by its flavonoids, acetophenones and phloroglucinols, as seen in animal models."Link
