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

Daily Prompt: A Brand New You, Effective Tomorrow

Daily Prompt: A Brand New You, Effective Tomorrow
by Krista on December 31, 2013

Tomorrow is the first day of a brand new year. Tomorrow you get to become anyone in the world that you wish. Who are you? You can choose to by anyone, alive today or someone gone long ago. If you decide to stay “you” share your rationale.

~~~~~~~~

I would like to remain myself. Several things in my life are showing promise of changes to come and I don’t want to miss them. I’ve got family and friends that I do not wish to leave. I want them beside me all the way, so we can share our changes.
Babies and children growing up and a baby yet to come. I am seeing several Medical Specialists: Nephrologist, Neuropathy, and an Rheumatoid Arthritis. Hopefully, I will see improvements in my Mental Health, Neuropathy Pain, Joint Pain, Muscle Pain, Back Pain, Bursitis, and Chronic Kidney Disease.
I have hopes that my writing is going to take off in 2014. I plan on working really hard in that area. I see 2014 as being a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous Year.
