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 received the following testimonial from my friend, Chris Kendall:

"I had reconstructive back surgery on July 20, 2012. I have been taking somewhere between 5-12 pain pills per day since that time. I still had pain that was somewhat manageable with the medication but not completely controlled. I was not able to sit, stand, move about for any length of time or sleep comfortably for the entire night.

On June 4, 2013, I applied some Thieves oil to my back as the pain was unbearable and the medication was not touching it. I applied the oil with doubts about its ability but within an hour, pain I lived with for almost a year was gone.

I have continued to apply the oil to my back daily and as of June 7, I have not taken a pain pill for anything. I am also able to move about and do things without the fear of pain coming on or being immobilized the next day. I still have my limitations as I no longer have my lower spinal bones but a titanium cage in my lower back, attached to my hip bones and on top to the spinal bones in my mid back.

This Thieves oil has been an amazing relief to me."
