Essential Oils Are Useful for Pain Relief
Apex Wellness Center uses essential oils as part of our treatments in Dallas, TX. Along with incense and gentle massage, essential oils are an essential element in our holistic treatment methods.
Simple Fixes for Painful Problems
The aches and pains that you feel throughout your day may actually stem from your lifestyle. So many people live with intermittent and chronic discomfort and pain that it is accepted as an inevitable part of life. Perhaps you suffered an injury or are just getting older and medication is the common and initial remedy.
Essential oils are concentrated and often require carrier oil (like almond, argan, coconut, and olive) to help dilute them for use. The trick is to find the essential oil that addresses your particular issue.
Common Essential Oils and Their Uses
Arnica oil and lemongrass oil help reduce swelling and inflammation. Juniper oil and clary sage oil help with muscle tension relief. Black pepper oil, clove oil, and ginger oil are a great source of relief for the pain.
Some oils can address more than one issue. For example, Sandlewood oil and cypress oil are good for muscle tension and swelling. Eucalyptus oil, German chamomile oil, lavender oil, Roman chamomile oil, rosemary oil, and yarrow oil alleviate swelling and muscle pain. Helichrysum oil, marjoram oil, and peppermint oil have been associated with relief from tension, swelling, and pain.
You can use these oils on a specific part of your body before or after an activity, as a massage lubricant, or in a hot bath. Using these same oils for aromatherapy is also a great way to provide relief while relaxing or reclining.
