5 Essential Oils that can help with Fibromyalgia

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

http://edge.affiliateshop.com/public/AIDLink?AID=138229&Redirect=/products/helichrysum-essential-oil/profile

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

http://edge.affiliateshop.com/public/AIDLink?AID=138229&Redirect=/products/clary-sage-essential-oil/profile

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

http://edge.affiliateshop.com/public/AIDLink?AID=138229&Redirect=/products/chamomile-roman-essential-oil/profile

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

http://edge.affiliateshop.com/public/AIDLink?AID=138229&Redirect=/products/lavender-essential-oil/profile

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

Silver Pages on the Lawn – Book Review

Silver Pages on the Lawn : A Student Love Story of the Depression Years of the 1930s
By: Nora Lourie Percival

AMAZON SUMMARY

A true story of lovers and their star-crossed romance that endures parental disapproval as well as the want of time, money, and privacy. To bridge long separations, they make love by words alone. Their passionate, eloquent letters, poignant and poetic, are the heart of this memoir and bring to life the troubled era in which their story takes place—the lean days of the Great Depression, war clouds over Europe, and the literary renaissance of which these aspiring writers were part, form the heart of their history.

‘Silver Pages on the Lawn’ paints a dramatic picture of the difficult years they lived through and of the steadfast love that survived it all and carried them through to the life they dreamed of.

BOOK REVIEW

I enjoyed Nora Lourie Percival’s memoir of college life in the 1930’s and her account of finding true love that endures many hardships. The couple are forced to keep their love a secret; Nora’s Jewish father does not approve of her relationship with a Gentile. The stress of the couples’ lives, attending college, finding places to meet, and often living miles apart, leave Nora dealing with severe bouts of anemia and Herman, her lover, with severe bouts of depression.

The couple are forced to communicate by writing letters to each other. Herman, who is a poet, writes dramatic and poetic letters. Nora often finds herself having to keep Herman’s spirit up through her letters. Herman has many doubts, but Nora is determined that their love will carry them through the hardships and they would have a life together, once she graduates college.

‘Silver Pages on the Lawn’ is based on the couples’ letters to each other. Nora Lourie Percival writes a poignant story of love and shares her precious letters with the world.

I recommend this book to all readers of history, a good love story, and the one’s who enjoy reading memoirs.

Nora Percival 99th Year Young

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Santa Cruz, CA: April 1, 2014 – After many awards, articles, bookstore events, and interviews for a writer who started at the wise age of 88, Nora Percival releases her best writings in eBook format. As an ongoing promoter from North Carolina, please help us in celebrating Nora’s 100th birthday coming up in October 2014.

Featured in an NPR interview, Nora shares in her immigrant beginnings from native Russia. Each of the three memoirs evokes a specific time in the 20th century including the two world wars, moving into the modern era, loves, loss, and reclaiming a full life relived with the release of the three eBooks.

A poignant read highly intelligent writer, blessed with an adventurous life, The Weather of the Heart, Whirligig of Time, and Silver Pages on the Lawn, are highly readable. Nora Percival was selected as one of the top six Guide Post Picks by women readers on about.com for 2003.

Nora’s father left Russia without his wife and daughter just ahead of the Russian Red Army in 1918. It took until 1922 before they would again be together after immigrating to New York, USA.

Nora Percival’s life has never been easy. From the depression of the 1930’s, to losing her first husband to leukemia in 1939 just to find out she was pregnant. Nora was determined to find her way and to find time for her writing. As her life took the turns of necessity, the stories regarding the price of freedom persisted. Yes, and at the age of 88 the writing began and an outpouring streamed forth.

To Google Nora Percival is to find a life lived fully, and in later life with finished books, acclaim, a growing family and stories to tell in person. Share in this fabulous life at http://www.nora Percival.com

Today the American public takes for granted their security, their television, cell phone, personal computer, and friends. A leap into Nora Percival’s three memoirs is to see first hand and to receive stories of early America during the dawn of international awareness and birth of student activism.

Which of your responsibilities stress you out the most?

~~~~~~~~

Several of my responsibilities stress me out. Anything that I don’t want to do stresses me out; being in public, people in general, riding in a car, (I haven’t driven in nearly four years), and having to talk to people, are just a few of my many stressors. I have general and social anxiety and do my best to keep them under cover.
Family fighting is another big stressor for me. I long for happiness and peace and do not do conflict very well at all. I used to fall apart completely when family conflict rose-up it’s leery head. I wanted everyone to be happy and would try to make everyone be happy, but more often than not, the tables would get turned on me and I would fall apart. Now, through several years of therapy, and I think I have the best therapist around, I have learned to step back, not get involved anymore than I have to, and aim for my happiness and peace of mind. I cannot control others and it does no one any good to have a pity party. I turn it over to the ‘powers that be’, and go along my merry, (as merry as I can make it), way.
The biggest stressor of all has to be when my husband is sick. I know I said ‘in sickness and in health’, but come on, I didn’t realize that meant even if he turned into a whiny baby. I have a wonderful husband, don’t get me wrong, but I’m sure there are some of you that can relate. When my husband gets sick, like he has been for four days now, he moans and groans constantly, and I do mean constantly. Even when I’m trying to work, he moans and groans. It is impossible to think with that going on, so I generally give-up, but then I tend to get resentful for having to spend every minute of my day sitting beside him and holding his hand, while he moans nonsense like, ‘I’m going to die,’ ‘The doctor was wrong, I’ve got something else. Take me to the emergency room’. He went to the doctor yesterday, and the doctor said he had a sinus infection and an ear infection. He gave him a shot, a prescription for an antibiotic, and a prescription strength mucinex.
I do the loving, pampering things: get his medicine’s for him and making sure he takes it at the right time, provide him with food and drink when he asks for it, and anything else I can do to make him comfortable. It’s the fact that he wants my total attention when he is sick that stresses me out the most.
On the other hand, he holds me when I fall apart, pets and pampers me in all ways, and looks after me when I’m sick, even though I don’t want anyone near me.
All in all, I guess it is the give and take that makes a good marriage.
