inflammation in joints

Post by michaelg » Fri Jul 08, 2011 6:24 pm

How deep can an oil blend penetrate into the body? I'm wondering if an essential oil can reduce inflammation in the neck joints (cervical) or lower back (lumbar).

Well, oils will be in the circulatory system almost immediately -- and they've sure helped my spine and low back. Particularly helichrsysum -- and it really doesn't take a lot. The oils in the Athlete Magic formula have worked well for a lot of people on different parts of their bodies -- backs, knees, necks -- not just pinkies :) Ginger CO2, Turmeric CO2, German Chamomile CO2, Frankincense CO2, Plai and Helichrysum are the big anti-inflammatory/regenerative oils I'm aware of, and just read research that Tamanu and Borage carriers can have significant effect as well. Cheers!

I use a home made blend of 6 drops of each of these oils in a spray bottle with 2 tsp. coconut oil.
rosemary, wintergreen, lavender, thyme helichrysum, peppermint, blue chamomile, blue tansy, ofmanthus.
I add all oils with the carrier coconut oil put in a glass spray bottle and fill with 4 to 6 oz. distilled water.
Spray on any area of your body you are experiencing pain. I had horrible fibromylasia and this blend is the
only thing that has completely taken away my pain.

Wow Linda, interesting blend. I can see the Helichrysum, wintergreen and blue tansy -- I wouldn't have expected the rest. And using as a spray - how did you find that beneficial? It's certainly something we may want to share about, or offer certain blends this way. Even just for the reduction in "greasiness" if applying to large areas it may very helpful for those working with pain.

Thanks!
Eric

Eric:

I'm wondering about the oils you listed specifying CO2 distillation. Does that mean that the steam varieties are not effective or just less effective?

Thanks,
a.

Hi Alliswell,

The CO2's are just different -- only in some cases are they "better", and that really depends on your application. And some oils are ONLY available as CO2's, and some are not. So really, the bottom line is their just different.

For example, Helichrsyum, Plai, Eucalyptus and many others are not available as CO2's, and the steam distilled varieties are a very high quality both aromatically and therapeutically. Frankincense is available as both, and in many cases, the CO2 is the more therapeutic of the two, yet we offer both for those who prefer the steam distilled.

Calendula, Rosehip, Carrot Root, and Sea Buckthorn are only available as CO2's, so those are the only ones we offer.

Let us know if we can help you with that any further!

I'm not sure which Frankincense to get for pain relief. I'm considering one of the CO2 versions, but have no idea which. Any info or recommendations?

I've also heard that Copaiba is good for pain, is that true?

I heard that Tamanu (1) and evening Primrose oil are the best carrier oils to use for inflammation or pain management That's what I use, along with Copaiba, PLAI, Birch oil, & Helichrysum - and a little black pepper oil, and lavandin. :)

Lavender essential oil commonly used to relieve headaches and neck pain also helps reduce the stress and anxiety that could be the underlying cause of these painful conditions.
