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.

My husband was working in the yard and that night had back pain. We assumed it was just a muscle ache. When it continued for two days nonstop and the pain kept getting worse and worse, he was in agony, we went to the doctors.

They diagnosed inflammation of his sciatica (nerve root ends) and gave him hydrocodone & diclofenac. The only thing these did was help him sleep; they did not help the pain.

After a week we went back to the doctor and they gave him a refill and a shot of morphine. The morphine eased the pain for a couple hours, before evening the constant pain was back. We were desperate at this point, nothing was helping prescription or over the counter.

I had heard about the Essential Oils from a friend so I called her. With a few oils that come in the basic Starter Kit and a bottle of Idaho Balsam Fir his sciatica completely calmed. Just a couple drops of Valor, Balsam Fir, PanAway and Lavender completely eased it, I mean COMPLETELY, no pain at all. We were amazed.

Each time it started to ache over the next couple days I applied the oils, then we noticed he needed them less and less. Within a week he was back to normal, the sciatica had calmed. We continued to apply the oils first thing in the morning and at bed time as a precaution for a few days but he did not have a recurrence, he was pain free.

Now occasionally when it flares we just apply a couple drops of the oils and the pain is eased instantly. If he is going to be doing a lot of walking or yard work we don't wait for the sciatica to become inflamed or irritated, we put the oils on before as a precaution.
