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.

About two weeks ago my back started feeling like it needed an adjustment. However, I didn't have the time and thought it would just go away. But it didn't. The pain got progressively worse. For two days I could hardly walk, and then I finally was able to go to the doctor.

I was diagnosed with inflammation on the ligaments, etc., that connect the pelvis to the spine. The doctor recommended ice, heat, and steroids. He said that it would take 6-12 weeks to get over it.

I applied PanAway, Copaiba, and Animal Scents Ointment. The pain went away -- almost all of it, almost instantly -- for about 15 minutes. I figured that that was better than nothing, so I just kept applying the essential oils and doing the ice and heat regimen.

Two days later, my back pain is nearly gone! I am thrilled to not have to take steroids and to be feeling MUCH better MUCH faster than the doctor had predicted.
