I am one who struggles with pain. A little more than a year ago, I injured my back - two of the discs in my lumbar region became bulged. Every day since then, the pain ranges from gone to "I'm not getting out of bed today."
Today, for instance was one of the bad days. I laid in bed on my back, dreading the thought of the mere act of rolling over to put my feet on the floor. But, I managed to do that. I used the walls to hold myself up and oozed my way to the bathroom where I got a bottle of blended essential oils specifically made for pain.
I have used this blend four times since I acquired it. Each time on my back. Today is the first time with a large amount of pain, so we will see how that goes, but the other days - the pain was much more manageable. And on those days, the oil really seemed to help the pain. The scent of the blend is not unpleasant at all. I would say it's like peppery citrus. It might not be the best in the world, but it's not bad. The oil also massages in very well. There is no stickiness or gooiness afterward. I would recommend this.
Full disclosure: I was sent this product free of charge in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
