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.

One of the reasons that I came to love essential oils is that it is the only modality that has kept my body pain free from the symptoms of osteoarthritis.

Soon after my daughter was born, I experienced unbelievable pain in my joints... mainly my hips, knees, and shoulders. After seeing a specialist in New York City, I was told that I had a severe case of osteoarthritis and that I would need to be on a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug for the rest of my life!

I was so desperate at the time that I drove straight to the pharmacy and had the prescription filled. After all, I had a newborn and wasn't sleeping more than an hour at a time -- not from the baby waking up but rather from the pain in my hips!

Unfortunately, not long after that, it was revealed in the news that all kinds of individuals who were taking some form of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug -- and who had no history of heart disease -- were suffering major heart attacks! Since I have a young child, I knew that I could not take this risk and started looking for an alternative solution. That's when I stumbled upon essential oils.

I started reading and discovered that most of the tree oils (e.g., Cypress, Juniper, Balsam Fir) had anti-inflammatory properties. I also ordered the NingXia Red to drink. Believe me -- comparing the copay amount and the medical risks of the pharmaceutical I was taking with the price of essential oils and NingXia Red that have NO side effects, it was a BARGAIN!

Within four months, I was biking the five miles around my property and taking up karate class! My daughter is 8 now, and I am the ONLY mother who joins in with the kids while the rest of the mothers -- all at least 20 years younger than I am -- sit on the sidelines and watch because they have NO energy.
