Effective Essential Oils for Pain

Mother nature is filled with botanical herbs and plants that have been utilized for managing various forms of pain throughout history. Today we're discussing our top 5 favourite and most used essential oils in our pain care products:

1. Peppermint This essential oil is one of my favourite oils to use in pain management remedies. It has so many overall benefits, but today I’m going to talk about how it can help with pain management. An effective anti-inflammatory, peppermint is known as an astringent, antiseptic, antipruritic, antispasmodic, antiemetic, carminative, diaphoretic, analgesic, anti-catarrhal, antimicrobial, rubefacient, stimulant, and more! Because of it's chemical breakdown (with menthol being it's main constituent) it proves to be so beneficial for so many natural remedies. At Balm2theSoul we love to use peppermint oil for headaches and body pains due to its cooling properties that help soothe tense muscles and nerves.

2. Eucalyptus – This is another essential oil that has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. It is reported to deliver morphine-like effects in clinical studies, furthering its reputation as an effective pain remedy. In addition, it provides a cooling sensation when applied topically which can help to reduce localized pain on the skin’s surface.

3. Clove – A well known antiseptic, clove bud is another essential oil that can help to reduce localized pain and inflammation. This particular essential oil has also been shown to be effective at fighting off infections, which can be beneficial for those suffering from chronic inflammation. The best use for clove is to stimulate circulation and relieve muscular pains and osteoarthritis.

4. Wintergreen – The chemical breakdown of wintergreen oil finds that it's main natural ingredient is methyl salicylate, which is a compound closely related to acetylsalicylic acid, otherwise known as Aspirin. Without the harming side effects of a pharmaceutical drug, wintergreen oil is a natural alternative that can help to relieve pain and inflammation. The active ingredient in this essential oil works by stimulating the blood vessels to increase blood flow and reduce swelling.
