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 have seen my husband struggle with the painful effects of neuropathy for nearly 10 years. He has used every drug available for pain, with no results, except for the drug Methadone.

Methadone use came to a screeching halt two years ago after a life-threatening incident. Since that time my husband has been without pain medications, and, unfortunately, the pain has been traveling higher and higher into his hips.

I thought, "What could I lose by using essential oils?" I started using PanAway and Frankincense 3 times a day on the bottoms of my husband's feet and on his legs by applying the oils neat (undiluted). I have since added Copaiba essential oil to the routine as well.

After 4 days my husband told me that there was a substantial change in his pain level. If you know nerve pain, then you will also know that it is one of the most difficult types of pain to treat, as no medications seem to touch it.

Seeing these results is extremely exciting and encourages me to explore essential oils more and more. To have someone you live with be able to have their pain relieved makes a huge difference in your life!
