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.


I have a herniated disc in my neck (C5-C6) and have had chronic issues with pinched nerves and muscle spasms over the years.

Why did I become a Young Living independent distributor? Because after just two applications of the Valor, PanAway oil blends and Peppermint, my pain became not only bearable, but these oils quickly alleviated the discomfort that not even prescription muscle relaxers could reduce!

Taking what I have learned after working on myself, I then turned to my roommate who has rheumatoid arthritis. She has been on multiple medications, and nothing seems to really help. She constantly complains of knee and ankle pain. She limps on a daily basis, despite trying to stay as active as possible (this woman could run miles around me).

She came up to me the other night complaining of knee pain so bad that she couldn't sleep. After one treatment using Valor and PanAway, she slept straight through the night for the first time in months.

Now she uses these oils daily, and I have seen a positive change in both her ability to move and to walk (no more limping).

Her overall demeanor has also been uplifted, though that could be from the Stress Away in my diffuser. LOL!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: muscle-spasm — "Peppermint oil is harmless and acts locally to inhibit GI [gastrointestinal] smooth muscle contraction.... Peppermint oil solution administered intraluminally can be used as an antispasmodic agent with superior efficacy and fewer side effects than hyoscine-N-butylbromide...."Link
2.Associated topics: muscle-spasm — "Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
3.Associated topics: rheumatoid-arthritis — "Ruxiang (Gummi olibanum), the dried gum resin of Boswellia carterii (BC) [frankincense], has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate pain and inflammation for thousands of years.... The data show that BC extract has significant anti-arthritic and anti-inflammation effects and suggest that these effects may be mediated via the suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines."Link
4.Associated topics: rheumatoid-arthritis — "We have demonstrated that Boswellia frereana [frankincense] prevents collagen degradation, and inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory mediators and MMPs. Due to its efficacy we propose that B. frereana should be examined further as a potential therapeutic agent for treating inflammatory symptoms associated with arthritis."Link
5.Associated topics: muscle-spasm — "Anti-inflammatory, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antimicrobial, antioxidant, carminative [flatulence] and immunomodulatory properties of caraway suggest that it might exert beneficial effects on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).... CHE and CEO [caraway essential oil] at all doses tested were effective in reducing colon tissue lesions and colitis indices and the efficacy was nearly the same when different doses of plant fractions were administered p.o. or i.p..... These data suggest that caraway fractions are both effective and possess anti-colitic activity irrespective of the dose and route of administration."Link
6.Associated topics: muscle-spasm — "[T]he effect of essential oils on skeletal and smooth muscle...: The first type of effect on skeletal muscle involved a contracture and inhibition of the twitch response to nerve stimulation shown by a sample of clary sage, dill, fennel, frankincense, and nutmeg; ...lavender reduced the twitch response alone."Link
