Managing or finding SUPPORT for discomfort and INFLAMMATION can often be a challenge. Discomfort can arise from many different sources: overexerting during exercise, strenuous activities, or even being idle for a long period of time.
While exercise and proper hydration play a key role in managing discomfort, there are times when a bit more support is necessary.
Essential Oils can help soothe and support those uncomfortable times, allowing the body to focus on healing itself.
Here are some key Essential Oils for helping those who experience inflammation:
• Peppermint Essential Oil – known for its analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-spasmodic properties.
• Helichrysum Essential Oil – known for its anti-spasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties.
• Marjoram Essential Oil – known for its relaxing properties and assistance with management of physical discomfort and inflammation.
Using these Essential Oils on areas of concern can greatly assist the body with management of inflammation and discomfort.
Remember to dilute with a carrier oil to prevent skin sensitivity and to also help the Essential Oil to be more applicable to larger areas of concern. Carrier oils also slow the evaporation process, allowing the Essential Oil application to be beneficial over a longer period of time after application.
