Essential Oils

Getting It Down to Size

It’s a new year and many people make resolutions. I’m normally not one of them, but this year I am. Resolution: to have less pain by being stronger in health. If you know some of my journey, it’s not some abstract thing and this post isn’t either. Let me explain.

Weak core strength lead to overworked back muscles which lead to painful right hip muscles. Add a bad movement and, BAM: inflammation so bad I was having trouble walking. Enter my newest blend!

This blend got me through the Christmas holidays!

The main oil is Lemongrass. It contains limonene, which is a compound that has been shown to reduce inflammation. The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy also list it’s benefits as: gastrointestinal disorders, exhaustion, acne, and insect repellent. Plus, it smells great.

I then chose Rosemary essential oil as it’s known as a pain reliever. Preliminary studies support its pain relief benefits and suggest that it may be more effective than acetaminophen.

Next was lovely lavender. Lavender essential oil has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. (It also helps heal minor burns,  scratches and bug bites.)

Last, but definitely not least is Frankincense essential oil. Since the benefits of this incredible oil is so long, I’m including this link, but the main benefit is regulation of healthy inflammation responses.

I hope this blend will help you as much as it helped me. Wishing you all a beautiful start to a new year!
