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.

My 88 year old mother had been complaining of lower back and leg pain for several days. I finally convinced her to let me apply some of my essential oils.

I started with the Valor oil blend on feet and up and down her spine. I then layered Eucalyptus Radiata, Basil, Marjoram, Vetiver, Wintergreen and Peppermint. We then applied heat. I repeated this three times the first day. She had some relief and was able to move about a little better.

The second day, I repeated the same treatment twice. She appeared to be pain free and moving about quite well. I offered to do more, but she seemed to be fine.
