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.

Last week I accidentally triggered sciatica nerve pain after doing a yoga exercise. I had overstretched my left leg too far back after not doing this exercise for a long time.

The pain shot down to my left buttock and thigh. A slight movement to walk or to sit down was painful. If it got worse I would have to get an appointment right away to see my osteopath.

I was not sure which oils to use, so I did some research on this website and found a success story of using essential oils for a sciatica problem. The oils that were recommended for sciatica pain were to be layered (3-5 drops of each) in this order are: the Valor oil blend, Clove, Idaho Balsam Fir, the PanAway oil blend, Frankincense oil, Copaiba and Lemongrass.

I had all the oils except for Clove. So I massaged the oils on my neck, spine and left thigh. In addition, I put 1 drop of Valor on the crown of my head and on the brain stem.

Next morning when I woke up I noticed a significant reduction in the sciatica pain. I continued to apply the oils for another 2 days, morning and evening.

By the 4th day, the pain had completely disappeared and I could walk normally again. Furthermore, I found that I could sleep deeply and soundly after using these oils.

Another positive outcome that I experienced after using these oils is that it had stopped my leaky bladder, a condition which I had developed about 3 weeks ago.

It's wonderful that these oils work so well. And thanks to my friend for sharing her experience.
