Essential oils can be really much more powerful than you might think and some of them are really great for pain relief and not only pain relief, they can also help with muscle tension, neuropathy, inflammation or migraines and much more.
It is surprising that people do not use this amazing natural product more. Used in pain relief lotions and creams, bath oils or salts or massage oils, essential oils may help with easing pain from various causes, including inflammation, migraine, neuropathy and muscle tension.
Essential oils are a natural, non-addictive organic way to deal with pain.
The Best Essential Oils For Pain
Sandalwood Essential Oil. Sandalwood is often used to treat muscle spasms, lymph node congestion and sciatica. The oil is also effective in relieving many skin irritations as poison ivy and insect bites due to the anti-inflammatory nature. Sandalwood Essential Oil is great for pain with its refreshing feel to the skin. The oil smells rich and earthy and promotes deeper sleep with a calm state of mind.
Sandal Essential Oil will support both the digestive and cardiovascular systems, which aid in relieving pain. Sandalwood Oil can also be combined with a base oil and applied to areas of pain including the bottoms of the feet.
Lavender Essential Oil. Lavender is probably the most famous essential oil for pain relief and relaxation. Lavender Essential Oil is considered to be one of the gentlest essential oils for the skin. The lovely smelling Lavender can help to relieve mental distress mood swings, anxiety and depression.
It has anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and sedative properties and it helps to relieve muscle tension and spasms, joint pain and headache. The oil will also aid the digestive system, therefore relieving many types of stomach discomfort. With the oil’s antiseptic properties it naturally help wounds heal.
I recommend using lavender for painful conditions of migraine headaches, toothaches, sprains, nerve pain, back pain and joint pain.
Cypress Essential Oil. Cypress Essential Oil is fantastic for circulation and is best used by rubbing clockwise in little circles moving up towards the heart. Rubbing in the direction that the blood is flowing moves the blood towards the hear to aid in better circulation. Blood circulation does help relieve pain as well; this is why therapeutic massages are recommended with aches and pains.
Frankincense Essential Oil. Frankincense is considered the most power anti-inflammatory oil that you can get. Being a power house against inflammation is a major factor in relieving pain of any sort. Frankincense Essential Oil will also heal and regenerate tissue. What an amazing natural remedy.
