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.

I have battled neck pain for years. Before learning about the oils, I was going to the chiropractor 1 to 3 times per week, and I was taking OTC drugs such as ibuprofen and Aleve and prescription Flexiril daily just to survive. My chiropractor said I have some arthritis in my neck plus a wearing down of the cartilage.

I started using the oils in November 2012, specifically PanAway and Valor. Since then I've done lots of research on pain management and reversing arthritis using the oils.

I've added Sulfurzyme, BLM, NingXia Red, and Omegagize3 to my regimen of oils of Copaiba, Idaho Balsam Fir, RC, and many others... along with my favorites, which are Deep Relief Roll-On and Relieve It. I also take Super Cal, Super B, CortiStop, and Master Formula HERS.

I don't use any oil exclusively because I don't want to become acclimated to it, so I use different combinations each day. I also use the oils in the Raindrop Kit, with Peppermint always on top to drive them in deeper. I can honestly say that I no longer have to pop pills for pain relief, and my pain, even on a bad day, is down to a 2 to 3.

I'm a speech-language pathologist who works on the floor and in little chairs with young children, and I have to lean over to look into their mouths; so I know my job contributes to my neck problem. However, if I put Valor on in the morning, I can usually go most of the day without it starting up. If it starts while I'm working, I grab my Deep Relief Roll-On; after applying it, I'm good to go!

I still go to the chiropractor weekly, but I've found one who combines deep tissue massage and EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) treatment along with adjustments.

I've gone from feeling as if I would not be able to continue working because of the pain to knowing that I still have many years left to work with my little ones! Thank God for giving us the essential oils!
