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 decided to start walking mornings for exercise a few years ago. On doing so I managed to irritate my lower back. Pain became intense and didn't go away so after a few days I went to have an x-ray done to make sure I hadn't done some serious damage. The problem turned out to be inflamed muscle putting pressure on the disc which the x-ray showed I had advanced degenerative arthritis.

The doctor prescribed hydrocodone & diclofenac for the pain and inflammation. The drugs did help, they eased the pain and after a week or so everything was back to normal, the occasional discomfort but bearable. This became an ongoing thing over the years now, always the same problem, same solution, and same results.

This summer when it happened again before doing anything else I looked up possible natural solutions to arthritis and back pain. I had recently purchased the 9 Every Day Oils starter kit from Young Living and thought why not. I applied Valor, PanAway & Lavender three of the oils that come with the kit and a couple drops of Balsam Fir that I had ordered specifically for another pain issue and the pain relief was instant. I mean no pain at all.

These oils are truly amazing.
