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 have had chronic arthritis pain in my neck for several years. This pain will become a severe headache and then a migraine if I don't stop it right away. I had been taking over the counter pain drugs such as Advil and Tylenol several times a week for years.

Prior to my arthritis, acupuncture treatments stopped chronic headache pain for a year. But I got tired of going to apppointments. I searched high and low trying various alternatives.

FINALLY! Young Living oils have cut my use of over the counter drugs to less than 1/8 of the time I may have to use Advil/Tylenol if I don't catch it in time. However I'm still experimenting and may find something that helps even when the pain as already spread.

In the meantime, at the tiniest onset of twinge of discomfort in the area of concern (neck/head) I saturate the area with the oils. I have successfully used Deep Relief, Peppermint, PanAway, and Clarity. Yes, Clarity. If you read which oils are in the "blends" you will see that there are oils you can use for a variety of concerns. So clarity takes care of my brain fog, sinus pressure, and neck-arthritis pain. I was very concerned about my taking over the counter drugs so often and harming my liver and kidney. I'm no longer concerned.

In addition I take the Ningxa Red drink. The good thing about the oils is if it doesn't work for you for one symptom, try the oil for something else. It is definitely bound to help with something else.

My dad is using the Peace & Calming and RutaVala to help with sleep. He said they are helping!

For bronchitis relief, I gave a neighbor Marjoram and Clarity. She said they helped!
