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.


Two years ago I had bladder surgery. Following the surgery I had frequent cramping in my tummy so bad that I would have to remove my clothing and lay on my bed with unbearable pain.

My surgeon could not find the cause of the spasms and prescribed Demerol 50 mg. I would take a pill, and an hour or so later the pain would dissolve. Then I would feel ok again until maybe a few days later or a couple weeks later, when another episode would happen.

Recently when this happened again, I didn't feel like getting up and going upstairs to get a Demerol as I lay moaning on my bed undressed. Sitting on a table next to me was a bottle of Aroma Life essential oil blend. I picked it up, unscrewed the cap, and poured it all over my belly and rubbed it into my skin.

Five minutes later the pain stopped. I sat up, got up, and was amazed that the pain was gone. A couple times since then Aroma Life has again worked successfully, so now I carry it in my purse whenever I leave my home instead of the Demerol tablet, which is a controlled substance and could eventually cause an addiction or bad side effects.

I am so thankful that I can replace a prescription drug with Aroma Life essential oil blend and also get quick results when I need to use it!

Peppermint oil solution administered intraluminally can be used as an antispasmodic agent with superior efficacy and fewer side effects than hyoscine-N-butylbromide...."Link

3.Associated topics: tenesmus — "A 4 weeks treatment with peppermint oil improves abdominal symptoms in patients with irritable bowel syndrome.... The symptoms evaluated were: abdominal bloating, abdominal pain or discomfort, diarrhea, constipation, feeling of incomplete evacuation, pain at defecation, passage of gas or mucus, and urgency at defecation."Link
4.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
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: bladder — "Frankincense oil appears to distinguish cancerous from normal bladder cells and suppress cancer cell viability. Microarray and bioinformatics analysis proposed multiple pathways that can be activated by frankincense oil to induce bladder cancer cell death. Frankincense oil might represent an alternative intravesical agent for bladder cancer treatment."Link
7.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
8.Associated topics: surgery-(Post-operative-recovery) — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
