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.


My boyfriend and I had been dating for a few months. We were at his house one day when my head started to hurt. I asked if he had any ibuprofen. He looked at me smiling and said, "No, but I have something you could try."

He went upstairs and came back with a small bottle. He poured a few drops on my forehead and neck. He explained that it was Peppermint essential oil.

Within a few minutes I noticed the cooling/soothing effect and about 15 minutes later the discomfort was almost completely gone.

Over the next few weeks I started noticing him using essential oils for many things.

One day I woke up with a terrible neck ache. When it wasn't gone halfway through the day, I started to get worried. I thought I must have slept on it wrong.

I went to the chiropractor, but after a day or two it wasn't much better. So I went to the chiropractor again, but after being adjusted, I still didn't feel any better.

I called him and said, "Okay, I'm ready to try some more oils!" I came over, and he mixed three oils together and put them on my neck. Within 5 to 10 minutes it was starting to feel better.

Over the next 2 days I put the oils on 3 to 4 times a day and noticed the aching starting to fade. By the third day the discomfort was completely gone!

I later found out the oils he used were the Relieve It, PanAway oil blends and Lemongrass.

I have had a few more episodes of the same neck ache and tried the Deep Relief oil blend, and the aching was completely gone within a few hours. So amazing!

Deep Relief is now my go-to oil!

1.Associated topics: headache — "Lavender, mint [peppermint], orange, rose, chamomile, rosemary, and sage were used.... Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link
2.Associated topics: headache — "Peppermint and its active ingredient menthol have long been used for the treatment of various pain conditions including headache.... Menthol solution can be an efficacious, safe and tolerable therapeutic option for the abortive treatment of migraine."Link
3.Associated topics: headache — "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
4.Associated topics: headache — "We report on a patient whose severe post-ECT headaches responded completely to methyl salicylate [wintergreen] ointment, applied to the area of his temporalis and masseter muscles. Topical methyl salicylate is generally well tolerated and may be a viable option for some patients with post-ECT headache."Link
5.Associated topics: headache — "The result for the primary end point was validated by the amelioration of the following secondary end points: headache on bending, frontal headache, sensitivity of pressure points of trigeminal nerve, impairment of general condition, nasal obstruction, and rhinological secretion.... In patients with acute nonpurulent rhinosinusitis, timely treatment with cineole [a.k.a. eucalyptol... found in eucalyptus, camphor laurel, laurus nobilis, tea tree, mugwort, basil, wormwood, rosemary, sage, and cannabis] is effective and safe before antibiotics are indicated."Link
6.Associated topics: headache — "This controlled study showed for the first time that a 10% peppermint oil in ethanol solution efficiently alleviates tension-type headache. Peppermint oil thus proves to be a well-tolerated and cost-effective alternative to usual therapies."Link
