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.


Due to an automobile accident, I fractured my 4th lower lumbar, had nerve damage in my neck, and three bulging discs in the cervical and thoracic area of my back. My cervical discs were dehydrated.

For the first three and a half years after the accident I was in incredible amounts of pain. Migraines plagued me daily along with fibromyalgia and arthritis pain throughout my spine. Numbness in arms and hands were caused from nerve damage from my neck injury. Bone spurs forming on my vertebrae, would eventually fuse my spine together.

My appointment (June of 2000) with the doctor was very disturbing. The doctor said I would be in a wheelchair by the time I turned forty. The daily migraines and back pain made life difficult, let alone adding extra therapy and exercise to my then current regimen. I left his office frightened and frustrated ... but determined to find a solution! My neurosurgeon discussed surgery when the nerve block injections in my back didn't work.

Exhausting many avenues of conventional medicine, I was finally open to other avenues which could regain my health. Then Young Living came into my life! Gary Young's personal story gave me MUCH hope. If Gary Young could walk after spending 13 years in a wheelchair, I could stay out of one! And there began my wonderful and amazing journey with Young Living.

I began with Sulfurzyme and a few essential oils (Peppermint, the RC oil blend, and Wintergreen). Within a month or so my pain was drastically reduced and migraines were a thing of the past. Within six to eight months the pain was GONE! My son Mikol learned the Raindrop Technique and performed this when needed.

I gained my life back ... PAIN FREE! I exercise daily and can even bend backwards! I reached the great age of FORTY (40) in June of 2004 and in no way will I ever need a wheelchair because of the effects of that accident! I am as healthy now as I was at 20 years old!

1.Associated topics: spine,general-pain — "We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
2.Associated topics: fibromyalgia-syndrome-(FMS) — "Lavender, mint [peppermint], orange, rose, chamomile, rosemary, and sage were used.... Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link
3.Associated topics: general-pain,migraine — "Peppermint and its active ingredient menthol have long been used for the treatment of various pain conditions including headache.... Menthol solution can be an efficacious, safe and tolerable therapeutic option for the abortive treatment of migraine."Link
4.Associated topics: general-pain — "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
5.Associated topics: general-pain,migraine — "Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
6.Associated topics: migraine — "We report on a patient whose severe post-ECT headaches responded completely to methyl salicylate [wintergreen] ointment, applied to the area of his temporalis and masseter muscles. Topical methyl salicylate is generally well tolerated and may be a viable option for some patients with post-ECT headache."Link
7.Associated topics: migraine — "This controlled study showed for the first time that a 10% peppermint oil in ethanol solution efficiently alleviates tension-type headache. Peppermint oil thus proves to be a well-tolerated and cost-effective alternative to usual therapies."Link
