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.

Off and on for a couple years I have given my wife different Young Living oils to try and help with her lower back pain and pain in her discs. Some like Deep Relief & Copaiba helped for a while but the back pain would came back after a few days.

I e-mailed my upline about the problem and she said one word, Frankincense. I looked it up in the essential oils reference book and had read through it many times but do not remember it saying anything about relieving pain. So, my wife tried it.

After using one bottle (couple times a day on lower back) I asked her how much better she felt. She said 40%. After a 2nd bottle 90-95% better. She had tried acupuncture, massage & a chiropractor before using the Frankincense but their treatments only lasted a few days each.

She is on her 3rd bottle now and is still feeling 95% better, and using the oil on a maintenance level, every 2-3 days. I might add, she has an occupational hazard problem of sitting too much as a court reporter. We try to walk every day, but with her work load that doesn't happen.

Thank you Gary.
