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.

headaches are a simple fact of life for me, I don't recall a day without headaches since hitting puberty, it's simply a matter of severity. After suffering a disabling stroke when I was 23 the headaches only got worse, eventually reaching migraine levels. I got some relief from drugs, more but not full from chiropractic.

Then I started hearing about essential oils and the great things they could do so I started looking into them. My research told me that Peppermint was the best thing to fight headaches. Not long after I delved into the field my sister in law/cousin (don't ask) announced that she had become a distributor for this company that deals in essential oils. Fancy that- it must be the fates looking out for me again.

The stroke was supposed to have killed me but I proved too stubborn for that. I confessed my interest in Peppermint to Erica and she offered me her pitch (I was a willing "victim"). She offered me some product but I had already decided I was getting some so I asked her to keep it for the next person in need.

I loved my Peppermint from the get go! I am a lunch lady in a private (smaller) middle school and have been for 14 years. At the end of the lunch hour I would come home, completely wiped out - head throbbing something fierce. I would add some Peppermint to my diffuser fan, plug it in next to my rocker, crack open my first soda of the day and just veg for an hour or so after which I would be as close to headache "free' as I ever get and feel energized to face the rest of my day.

So today I decided to conduct a little non scientific experiment. I wondered what would happen if I applied the Peppermint BEFORE I went to work rather than after the headache had already worsened and here are the results:

I have my Peppermint bottle equipped with a rollerball top so I applied it to my temples as well as down both sides of the back of my neck-all the areas that would normally be throbbing painfully midway into our first group of hungry students. I suppose a headache is inevitable while sitting in a concrete walled room with 100+ squealing tweenagers and I made it all the way through the day with only a very minor headache! That's never happened in the 12 years I've worked at Regis!

After relating this to Erica she asked if she could quote me. She then shared this link with me and I decided I should "quote" myself. How am I doing? Are you convinced yet? I am and I began as the eternal skeptic. I am just starting to discover oils and can't wait to find out what other miracles are out there in little glass jars with rollerball tops!
