OILS FOR PAIN, AND RELAXATION….

With so many oils to choose from it’s difficult to know which ones are best for your problems, but if you get them right they can have a fantastic effect on your pain and relaxation.

Lavender is the most famous essential oil for pain relief and relaxation is lavender. It’s also good for your cardiovascular and digestive systems, lowers blood pressure and helps relieve insomnia.

For relaxation try vanilla. In the Columbia University Medical Center study, subjects who smelled vanilla while completing stress tests had more stable heart rates and blood pressure readings than those who took the tests in an unscented environment.Place a few drops of vanilla extract onto a handkerchief and carry it with you throughout the day.

To help you recharge try peppermint, jasmine, citrus. These scents make you feel more awake. Apparently even though these scents are pleasant, they act as mild irritants and the effect is similar to that of smelling salts.

Sprinkle a few drops of the essential oil of your choice in a candle diffuser, or dilute two drops in 1 tsp. of avocado or almond oil, then rub it onto the back of your hand.

For pain relieve try Green apple. The smell of green apples can reduce the severity and duration of migraine headaches and may have a similar effect on joint pain.

Another way for pain relief, is to eat a green apple for a snack or bathe with green apple bath salts.

  2. I’ve used essential oils extensively, and find them to be quite efficacious for a number of conditions. A great way to know the right oils for what ails you is to either learn kinesiology or have someone else do it for you.
