I have arthritis and have always been on the lookout for the latest homeopathic medicine.
I am afraid of the effects of drugs on my system every day. I also have similar pain to those who have Fibromyalgia.
Needless to say, I’m desperate to find something. While searching I came across essential oils and found myself immediately intrigued by the idea of using smell & a relaxing bath to ease pain.
I’m pretty sure everyone knows about Epsom Salt, however, did you know if you put two drops of Lavender, one drop of Chamomile, one drop of Rose or Palmarosa essential oil in your bath it’s good for stress-related pain?
For Energy use two drops Eucalyptus or Rosemary, one drop of Palmarosa and one drop Peppermint.
I don’t know about you, but I’m always cold and this is the perfect remedy along with the reduction of pain. Two drops of Ylang, Ylang, one drop Ginger, one drop Pepper. It’s wonderful for stress-related pain and as a bonus, it warms you up.
This one is awesome for nausea & pain. One drop Ginger, one drop Jasmine or ylang, ylang.
This is only the tip of the iceberg as far as how aroma therapy can help with many conditions. The list below are for those suffering from pain and stiffness.

They recommend you spending at least 20 minutes in your bath to get the full effects and make sure the door is shut so the smell can envelope you.
