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 mom was in the middle of packing for a trip to see her brother in AZ when she had a spasm in her back. She could not move about without stabbing pain. She called me to tell me of her situation.

Being very new to using the oils but having learned what others have used for pain I grabbed the oils and drove over to see her. On the way there I saw a street called Balsam and I knew there was a reason that I packed my Balsam Fir oil!

As soon as I arrived I started putting essential oils on her back. I went with the essential oil reference book suggestions and my own intuition. We used the PanAway and Deep Relief oil blends, Balsam Fir, and Frankincense.

At the end of the visit I had her say a prayer while she smelled the oil blend of Believe. The prayer was that the oils would work to alleviate her pain and allow her to go on her trip to see her brother in Arizona in 2 days. I left her with a Deep Relief roll on in case the pain came back. She didn't even have to use it.

One application of oils made her feel better and able to make her long awaited trip to visit her brother. So glad that I could share the power of the oils with her and now she is very excited to tell people what these "exceptional oils", as she calls them, did for her.
