My doTERRA natural pain remedies

I wanted to share a couple of my favorite oils.  After you start using doTERRA you will soon have many favorites.
I have played hard for as long as I can remember.  When I was in the Marine Corps I was a pitcher on a co-ed softball team.  One of those games I met a line drive ball to the face.  I have chronic back and neck pain and I have come to believe that this is one of the many incidents that have led to my body not being very happy with me.
In the past I have used pain killers to alleviate some of this pain.  I now have some natural pain remedies available.

For basic aches and pains I use Deep Blue rub.  On those days when the pain is extreme and I need relief now; I use Cypress and Lemongrass.  This is instant relief and guaranteed to work for me every time.
