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 (EDS), which is a hereditary disease caused by a defective gene that produces collagen. Collagen is in all connective tissue.

Therefore, my knees, 5 out of 10 fingers, my left hip, and the top 3 vertebrae in my neck dislocate. I wear splints and braces to help prevent further dislocations, but these joints and others are constantly aching and throbbing, especially with weather changes or moving.

Since I found Young Living essential oils and have begun using them on a daily basis, I have much less pain... and on some days no pain! I even have fewer dislocations occurring. My joints are feeling more stable too.

I use PanAway, Lemongrass, and Wintergreen topically. I also carry a Deep Relief roll-on with me at all times. At first I used them every couple of hours. As time went on and the pain decreased, I was able to stretch out time between applications.

I still will use them more often when the weather is bad or after a dislocation has happened, like the night my husband rolled over in bed and his elbow landed on my hands, dislocating both of my thumbs. I use a "Morphine Bomb" combination of oils for extreme pain. I used it that night for sure!

I am so thankful I learned about these oils because pain meds do not really help pain for EDS patients. The oils are the only thing I have found that has made a difference.
