AROMATHERAPY OILS FOR PAIN AND RELAXATION…

aromatherapy oils

I have written an article in my book ‘Complementary & Alternative Therapies for Pain’ on how an aromatherapy massage with certain oils can help with pain and relaxation. Below is a list of some of the most well known oils for that type of treatment.

Bergamont – this is an oil obtained from a plan that is a native species of some Asian and Eastern Countries.
The oil was first used and traded in Italy and derives its name from the northern city of Bergamont. When combined with eucelyptus, its soothing effect can help insomnia, anxiety and depression.

Chamamile – this is also effective in reducing stress, anxiety, migraine and insomnia.

Cypress – it is know for bringing relief from tired aching legs and feet when used in the bath.

Eucalyptus – this is a native species of Australia and Tasmania but is now grown throughout the world. The diluted oil is used for muscular and rheumatic aches and pains, headaches, neuralgia and fevers. Caution – taken internally can be fatal.

Lavender – this highly perfumed nature species from the Mediterranean but is now very popular in Britain growing in our gardens. It has a relaxing property and is generally one of the most versatile and widely used oils for healing. Excellent for muscular aches and pains.
