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.

After serveral pregnancies and my second c-section I was left with very painful, damaged abdominal muscles. I was told by my doctor they would never heal or be the same and that they were unable to repair them during the c-section. This was my 8th pregnancy and the first c-section had been an emergency, all in 9 years. I was in a lot of pain and the pain killers they gave me didn't seem to take away the stabbing, burning pain in my abdominal area, it hurt to sit, stand, lay down, just everything. It finally subsided after a few very long and miserable weeks.

When I was blessed with our 10th child a year later through c-section, I had been introduced to Young Living oils and had just got my Everyday Essential Oils kit 2 days before I went into premature labor. I was fearful of the weeks of pain I might experience afterwards again. During the surgery they told my husband that my abdominal muscles were pretty much completely, and irreversibly damaged to the point that a future pregnancy could cause my organs and uterus to herniate out. Needless to say recovery was gonna be tough and painful.

When I got released from the hospital and that stabbing pain began, I immediately would put on PanAway, within less than 5 minutes I had complete relief. I could go about doing things (within reason as I was recovering from a c-section), riding in a car, walking in the store, etc. and not fee the excrutiating pain. Anytime the pain would start to come back I would put more on. I even quit using all the prescribed pain killers 6 days after my c-section and just used my essential oils.

I am so thankful for PanAway, it truly was a gift from God that it arrived right when I needed it most.
