How do Essential Oils work as a Natural Muscle Relaxer or Pain Reliever?
Essential oils contain properties that are documented to be anti-spasmodic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic (pain relieving) and more.
They easily penetrate the skin and can be carried throughout the blood and tissues within minutes!
Essential oils are also high in antioxidants, improve oxygenation to the cells and cleanse the lymphatic system.
Therefore, the oils will help your body eliminate inflammatory wastes, improve circulation and ultimately help with recovery time.
Here are some of the oils that we use:
Wintergreen Essential Oil (Gaultheria procumbens) is warming. It contains methyl salicylate and has a cortisone-like effect that reduces pain and inflammation from muscles, and joints.
Peppermint Essential Oil (Mentha piperita) is cooling to the skin. It blocks pain and enhances the other effects of the oils.
Lemongrass Essential Oil (Cymbopogon flexuosus) is known to repair connective tissue and especially good for ligaments and tendons.
Pine (Pinus Sylvestris) is an analgesic and hence it is a good remedy for people suffering from joint pain, arthritis, and rheumatism. Pine essential oil is antiseptic and hence it is used in treating sports injuries, and muscle injuries.
