5 Essential Oils That Can Help With Fibromyalgia

Our brain can identify up to 10,000 different types of scent. Each scent can produce different responses in our body and activate the production of various hormones and biochemicals which can influence how we feel physically and mentally, or even how we perceive pain. Regular usage of certain essential oils is believed to help to improve fibromyalgia symptoms such as pain, fatigue, stiffness, insomnia and depression.

Here are 5 effective essential oils that can help fibromyalgia…

Helichrysum Essential Oil (Helichrysum italicum)

Helichrysum Essential Oil is steam distilled from the flowers of the plant. It carries a sweet, earthy, green floral aroma. The word helichrysum is named after the golden yellow flowers of the plant, and comes from the Greek words helios meaning sun and chrysos meaning gold. The common name, immortelle, also comes from the flowers, because they are long lasting blossoms that do not wither easily.

This essential oil is helpful in coping with depression, anger and stress related to fibromyalgia. It also relieves muscle pain and helps heal the nerve tissue. Since it is calming, patients can use it to relax, relieve stress and tension and unwind. For best relief, about three drops of this oil should be massaged on the temples and other flex points.

1/8 ounce – $42.00

Clary Sage Essential Oil (Salvia sclarea)

Clary Sage Essential Oil is steam distilled from the leaf and flower of the plant. It has a dry, musky, bittersweet floral scent.

The sweet-smelling perfume of this essential oil gives the user great comfort and enhances his mood. So, it is very good for treating depression due to fibromyalgia. It also brings pain relief and stimulates relaxation. To use this essential oil for fibromyalgia relief, about three to five drops of this oil may be added to one teaspoon of jojoba oil or hazelnut oil and apply on the affected parts.

1/2 ounce – $23.00

Chamomile, Roman Essential Oil (Arthemis nobilis or Chamaemelum nobile)

Chamomile Essential Oil is steam distilled from the flowers of the herb. It contains a fresh, rich, sweet, fruity, apple-like aroma.

Sleep difficulties resulting from fibromyalgia are quickly laid to rest when one uses chamomile essential oil. This calming herb promotes deep sleep, reduces anxiety and boosts the immune system because it has inherent properties of relaxation. It induces sleep because it helps to improve Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep.

1/8 ounce – $27.25

Lavender Essential Oil (Lavandula angustifolia)

Lavender Essential Oil is steam distilled from the flowering tops of the herb. It carries a sweet, floral, herbaceous aroma.

This oil is generally known to improve sleep, thanks to its delicate perfume and hence can greatly benefit fibromyalgia patients. Infuse a cotton ball with three to five drops of lavender oil and place it inside your pillow case. Alternatively, combine about 15 drops of lavender oil to 1/3 cup white vinegar and one cup of water. Pour it into a spray bottle and mist the room with it. It will help the patient sleep better and also improve high blood pressure too.

1/2 ounce – $12.75

Eucalyptus Essential Oil (Eucalyptus globulus)

Eucalyptus Essential Oil is steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of the tree. It carries a fresh, penetrating, woody, camphoraceous scent.

Some symptoms of fibromyalgia like soreness, chronic muscle pain and stiffness are linked to poor blood circulation, causing a build-up of toxins in the muscles that lead to pain and inflammation. Eucalyptus oil counters these symptoms as it is anti-inflammatory and can stimulate blood circulation by widening the blood vessels. The patient gets relief from muscular pain and fatigue. To use this oil, combine about four to five drops of it in one cup of hot water. Soak a compress pad in the liquid and apply it to the affected body parts. Repeat the process after the water cools down.

1/2 ounce – $4.00

Ten Essential Oils for Health and Survival

Top 10 Essential Oils for Health and Survival

Many practitioners of alternative medicine are now encouraging the use of essential oils for minor ailments such as wounds, insect bites, nausea, headaches, digestive disorders and more. This is not hocus pocus. We are talking about the use of pure essential oils from plants and flowers that adapt to nature organically. It is our opinion that essential oils will become an important line of defense that will insure our health and well-being over the long term.

A wonderful tidbit about EOs is that they don’t contain any fatty acids that can turn rancid or mold AND the environment of a pure EO is too tough for bacteria to grow in. Most essential oils will outlive you and I. There is no shelf life for pure plant essence with the exception of citrus EOs which should be replaced annually. This is a very special benefit and, an economical one! When you invest in pure essential oils you’re providing your family a security and empowerment knowing that you can take care of most health needs efficiently, without side effects. Be Safe, be Well!

Lavender

This is the Swiss Army knife of EOs.  Heals burns, cuts, relieve insomnia, reduces stress, a powerful antihistamine, bug bites, bruises, sleep deprivation, inflammation, sunburn, lice.  Soothing to skin irritations, earache and depression.  Lavender is the number one essential oil to have in your survival kit, in fact I would keep two bottles.

Lemon

Known for it’s cleansing ability.  Add a few drops to water to purify (this was suggested in a seminar I attended but I have no proof, however, in dire circumstance, I would do it).  Great for intestinal parasites, dissolves petrochemicals in your body, effective for colds and flu, helps digestive and liver work, gout, sore throat, disinfectant, antiseptic.

Today’s Aromatherapy Tip of the Day: December 27, 2013 is a continuation of The Angelic Fragrances.

ANGELIC FRAGRANCES
1 A Angelic Fragrance  www.thecandlemakersstore.com 2

HELICHRYSUM – ITALIAN EVERLASTING
Helichrysum Essential Oil brings courage, endurance, and persistence, enabling the path ahead to be clearer. It is full of awareness of the dangers and pitfalls of life.

HYACINTH
Hyacinth is another essential oil of the Angelic Realms that is reminiscent of many descriptions of angelic odors. It can be used when we find it difficult to express ourselves, and need consolation and assurance that we are not alone and help is always nearby, if it is the will of God.

HYSSOP
Hyssop Essential Oil is used for removal of emotional uncleanliness and assistance in the expansion of the protective beings, but very much on the physical plane, assisting in the removal of the heritage of guilt and fear miasms of a psychological nature. It is purifying for those who believe they have sins that must be forgiven.

JASMINE
Jasmine Essential Oil is a favorite of the Angelic Realms. It is often a similar, but not the same, fragrance that heralds the Angels arrival and departure. It is a fragrance of the shining light-beings. Jasmine Essential Oil assists in compassion, love, and purpose.

JUNIPER
Juniper Essential Oil assists during purification, perhaps after nightmares or such like. It can be used during meditation to help bring the beings of light into the setting, and to understand why negative experiences may be troubling us.

Next, we will continue to discuss The Angelic Fragrances.
