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.

Recently I had severe back pain. I am not sure what caused it but believed it was from pulling a muscle while lifting my very heavy 2 year old. I had hoped the pain would fade within 24 hours, but 24 turned to 48 and then 72. By the third day the pain became so bad I could not lift anything, I could not bend, I could not turn and was having problems standing straight.

I decided to call my doctor for an appointment only to find I could not get in right away. As such, I used the oils I had on hand to treat the pain. Here is what I did:

I applied Lemongrass oil to the site and it felt much better but the pain did not completely fade. The next time, I decided to apply the Lemongrass again and topped that with Peppermint oil. Within a few minutes the pain was completely gone and I could function normally. The pain stayed away for up to 12 hours.

By day three, I decided to religiously apply the oil 3 times every day to deal with the pain before it started. This completely combated the pain and I did not have any back pain. At day five, I no longer had any back pain but decided to keep applying the oils until I reached a full week of application.

After day seven I stopped applying the oils all together. The last time I applied the oil was three months ago and to this day I still have NO PAIN!
