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 husband was injured at work over 30 years ago. About ten years ago, it had developed into a disc problem in his lower back.

He is very diligent about using the oils on his back every day. He's been doing this for the past seven years.

He has avoided surgery which his doctor offers as an option many times. He still has some pain but many days it is manageable and using essential oils is the reason why.

He uses a variety of oils and blends - Deep Relief is always in his briefcase. And I combine oils for him that we call our pain relief blend.

I put about 20 drops of each of these oils into an empty bottle:

Lavender, Basil, Cypress, Peppermint, Lemongrass, Copaiba, Wintergreen, Marjoram and Helichrysum.

This blend has also helped my discomfort from tendonitis.
