I started using the Everyday Oils Kit daily according to their respective chakra points. I was using Thieves and Lemon in my water and Abundance on my wrists and chest.

After a while I realized that I was no longer taking pain medications every day for my lower back pain/sciatica and tension headaches. Although the pain wasn't totally gone, it was at a level where I didn't need the pain medication with codeine of which was not doing myself or my body any favors, especially when taken long-term. There seemed to be something here that was working so I started doing some more reading and getting some books on essential oils.

Inflammation seemed to be something I should tackle to improve my health and well-being so I started on the Young Living Core Essentials Program in April 2012. My back pain, stress and tension headaches reduced even more and I dropped 10 kg to boot. I also noticed my energy levels picked-up. I felt kind of like I had gotten a little younger and even my family from the US, on our weekly Skype call, said I was looking younger.

Well, that's how I started and my experience so far. I haven't had any pain killers since and have kept the 10kg off! My energy levels are much better and I just love my oils. I can't say what they might be able to do for you, but that is what they have done for me.

Specifically, I herniated the 2 discs from S1 to L4 in 2001 and had been on pain killers to deal with the pain ever since. I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease (DDD). My current regime includes Young Living Core Essential Program every month, I use s 50/50 mix of Peppermint and V-6 oil in a roller bottle and apply on my temples and neck as required when I feel a headache due to stress and tension coming on.

My back pain routine uses a 30/60 mix of Sacred Frankincense and V-6 oil which I apply to my lower back before bed and a 50/50 mix of Relieve It and V-6 oil I apply to my lower back in the morning. I use the Sacred Frankincense because I read somewhere that it has been shown to possibly regenerate disc tissue.
