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 hurt my back lifting a sofa that I had no business moving. The pain was horrible - a 10 on the pain scale - it was in my lower back as well as my hip and it radiated down my left leg. I tried the warm bath soak and it only made things worse.

I remembered a friend telling me that Idaho Balsam Fir oil is often used to reduce inflamation. I got my bottle of oil out and slathered it on my lower back, both hips and down my left leg very generously. It did not totally relieve the pain, but it did reduce it to a 4 or 5 on the pain scale. I used it three times a day until the pain was gone.
