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 a lower back/hip injury that resulted in so much pain that I couldn't do aerobic exercise, do yard work or continue to do my job testing construction and mining equipment.

After months of physical therapy and rebuilding my leg and back strength, I was still left with daily pain that kept me from most physical activity and pain at night that kept me from sleeping soundly. I could feel tight muscles in my back and left hip that would not relax no matter how much I stretched and moved.

I started soaking in a tub at night, adding a couple of drops of Frankincense and Release to the water. I could feel my muscles start to relax even before getting into the tub. I used a plastic knob-type massage tool to encourage my hip muscles to relax. I put Helichrysum and Peppermint oils on my hip and lower back at night right before sleeping.

After the first week, I could sleep through the night without pain. I repeated the Frankincense and Release tub soak occasionally when my back or hip would feel tight or painful and applied Helichrysum and Peppermint only if I felt pain after soaking in the tub. In less than six months, all back and hip pain was gone.
