So far so VERY good! I didn’t use a single pill of painkiller already during the first cycle for cramps when I used this oil. My breasts were not as painful or tender prior to period start. Some symptoms still remain of course. Like temperature shifts and lower back along with lower abdomen dull pain are still there. Overall, I feel brave for observing my body and the pain level during this cycle before reaching for painkillers. I think this oil was a success and made a tremendous difference for me. A definite recommendation for anyone trying to use less painkillers during painful periods and reduce overall PMS symptoms. Not to mention it is very nourishing to the skin.
