Essential Oils for Pain

Essential Oils

If there is one thing you should have in your household at all times, it should be essential oils because they are the jack of all trades. They can be used for a variety of things such as cleaning our homes, fighting off colds, getting rid of skin imperfections, and providing us with a better sense of relief when we are in pain. Essential oils can treat headaches, muscle pain, tooth aches, cramps, neuropathy – the list could go on! With the collection of essential oils available, you can easily determine which works best for you and which to use in the event you are sensitive to another.

Safe Ways to Use Essential Oils

Essential oils can ease pain by massaging into the affected area or through aromatherapy. You should remember to dilate your oils with a carrier oil or water before doing either. Essential oils should never be used without diluting it first because the skin either does not respond well or at all to highly concentrated areas.  The type of essential oils you decide to use will also determine its effectiveness depending on the issue you wish to address.

Eucalyptus

This essential oil provides both analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. It is best applied directly on the body or by adding a couple of drops into your bath. The spicy, warm oil is taken from the leaves and bark of a eucalyptus tree. The skin readily absorbs eucalyptus where it soon relieves pain caused by strains, sprains, aches, or nerves. It is also perfect for those who need to clear sinus congestion or have an insect bite.

Lavender

Lavender is a soothing, fragrant oil that is perfect for muscle or joint pain as well as stress. Applying or inhaling it can help promote better sleep if you are suffering from insomnia, stress, or restlessness because of pain prior to bedtime. If you deal with frequent headaches or migraines, lavender can also help, and you may place the oil on your temples for quick relief.

Rosemary

Another wonderful oil to try for migraines, headaches, and muscle or joint pain would be rosemary. If you struggle with concentrating or would like to improve your memory, this essential oil is the thing to use. Rosemary has an antidepressant effect too that is safe for all ages, but should be avoided by pregnant women.

Juniper

Juniper is not well-known to people, but it is probably one of the most relevant essential oils in regards to pain relief, anti-spasmodic, and anti-rheumatic. This means that it is especially helpful for those who have to deal with muscle spasms and the pain it causes. Joint aches and pain commonly lined with arthritis and fibromyalgia are reduced when Juniper is applied around the area.
