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 Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which is a hereditary disease caused by a defective gene that produces collagen. Collagen is in all connective tissue. Therefore, my cervical vertebrae dislocate, causing chronic daily headaches (5 to 7 out of 10 pain level) and migraines several times a month, lasting up to six days.

Since I found Young Living essential oils and have begun using them on a daily basis, I haven't had a migraine since October! My daily headaches are mostly gone, weather permitting. On stormy days they come back, and I have to use more essential oils more often or take a "morphine bomb" of oils.

I use Thieves, Lavender, and Peppermint topically. At first I used them every couple of hours. As time went on and the headaches decreased in pain daily, I was able to stretch out time between applications. I also diffused Peace & Calming, Thieves, and Stress Away.

My life has gotten so much better. Last year I couldn't focus because of the headaches, and it took me until June to get my taxes to the CPA. This year I had them there by February. Before October, I took naps every day. I spent most of my days in a recliner doing nothing much. I couldn't go out because I couldn't and wouldn't drive. Having blurred vision from headaches and feeling loopy from drugs, I was not safe to be driving.

I haven't used the following meds since October: Aleve, Tylenol, Motrin, Relpax, Anaprox, Methadone (Phenergan and Zyrtec also for the side effects), Lunesta, and Benadryl. I don't need the sleep meds because I'm not in pain.

Additional keyword(s) assigned by the editor: hypermobility, hyperelasticity, dystonia, spondylosis.
