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.


I am a cancer survivor currently under treatment for breast cancer that has metastasized to my bones. As the disease progresses, the pain throughout my body intensified to a point that I needed strong narcotics to function.

However after having a rod placed in my left femur, and radiation to follow, I had side affects that left me weak, in constant pain, even taking morphine and wanting God to call me home.

The week before Thanksgiving, I awoke Sunday morning with severe swelling throughout my body. I made a decision to go cold turkey, stop ALL prescription medications, all supplements, everything. I went into severe withdrawal.

I am over the withdrawals, and have not taken any pain medication except a vegetable capsule filled with five drops each of: Balsam Fir, Frankincense, and Copaiba. I take this three times a day, and I massage a combination of essential oils on my legs to help relieve bone pain.

As I pray daily, thanking God for His grace and mercy, continue to cleanse my body of toxins and use essential oils, my outlook on this earthly life has increased immensely and I look forward to the holiday's celebrating the birth of the Christ Child!! He has relieved my pain using these quality oils.
