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.

In October 2010, my husband fell off a roof and broke 2 vertebrae in his lower back. Since that time, he has suffered greatly with low back pain. He had several rounds of physical therapy and while he got relief, it only lasted for a couple of months. Due to a sensitive stomach and fear of pain med addictions, he avoids pain meds and thought he needed to live with the pain.

In the fall of 2013, I started using Young Living's essential oils for other purposes. The first night of my kit arriving, I suggested using the PanAway oil blend on my husband's back. He permitted me to do so but was skeptical. I put a drop or two on his lower back and massaged it in.

The next morning, the first words out of his mouth were, "I think your oil helped." He used to wake up each night because of pain and would try to get comfortable. That was the first night he woke up without pain and was able to fall right back to sleep.

While he thought the PanAway helped, he wasn't completely "sold". However, in the last 4 months, whenever I apply a drop of PanAway on his lower back, before bed, he sleeps great and doesn't have pain! Praise God!!!

While he hasn't been completely healed, he is managing the pain naturally and we've avoided additional physical therapy. (since we only have major medical insurance, that is a huge savings!) We are profoundly grateful for Young Living oils and are now holding classes in which my husband helps to lead!!
