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.

I found myself almost unable to walk one evening because of pain in my upper thigh. I had noticed a twinge during the day but had been able to ignore it. By late afternoon, I was in considerable pain. When I touched my outer thigh, it was really sore, almost too sore to walk.

I did a little research and found that the probable cause for my pain was my sciatic nerve in my lower back. I really needed to be able to walk the next day; I couldn't afford a day in bed.

I remembered the Valor oil blend being a good choice for back problems. I got ready for bed, rubbed Valor on my lower back and down the side of my thigh. I followed up with Wintergreen for the pain. With a hot water bottle and a lot of prayer, I laid down to sleep.

I slept well and to my amazement, my pain was gone the next day. I was able to walk and function without even a twinge of pain. The true physician is the Lord; I am thankful that he gives us tools like the essential oils to help ease our pain and suffering.
