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 awoke at 4 AM one morning with pain in my abdomen. I went to the sofa and found the pain also migrated to the sternum area. The pain was so crushing that I felt like a truck was sitting on my sternum.

After thinking for a few minutes about whether to wake my husband and go to the hospital, I remembered I had essential oils (had only had my kit for about 2 weeks). In too much pain to check any suggestions from any source, I just applied the PanAway blend on my abdomen and Peppermint essential oil on my sternum.

The abdominal pain went away instantly, but the sternum still had crushing pain. So I put PanAway on my sternum as well. The sternum pain then also went away instantly! Completely pain free, I went back to bed. (Note: If you suspect pain due to a heart attack, get emergency help immediately.)

About two weeks later my 91-year-old mother (who lives with me) also had pain in her chest. She gets heartburn regularly, which tends to give her serious pain for about an hour. I applied PanAway on her chest, and the pain was immediately relieved.

Being a solvent of cholesterol, d-limonene has been used clinically to dissolve cholesterol-containing gallstones. Because of its gastric acid neutralizing effect and its support of normal peristalsis, it has also been used for relief of heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). D-limonene has well-established chemopreventive activity against many types of cancer. Evidence from a phase I clinical trial demonstrated a partial response in a patient with breast cancer and stable disease for more than six months in three patients with colorectal cancer."Link
