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.

For years after a car accident, I lived with low back pain. Sitting, standing, driving, the pain was always there. Night time was especially difficult to find a comfortable position even after upgrading two different mattresses.

Stretching, walking, simple yoga, steroid injections, alternating heat and ice all helped, but nothing ever eased the pain for very long. Prescription pain medicine gave me headaches, nausea or that "snowed" feeling and did nothing for the pain.

I use essential oils and heard about the "morphine bomb" and decided to try it. I put 6 drops of Frankincense and 6 drops of Idaho Balsam Fir in a vegetable capsule and within 30 minutes, had relief from the gnawing pain. I use this on an as needed basis and have a better quality of life.

By not focusing on the pain I can focus on remedies with the help of these amazing oils.
