Essential Oils: Pain Away!

Marjoram Leaves, One Source for Pain Relief!

Oh, my aching back!  Ouch, my knee!  Oooh, my tennis elbow!  Have you ever heard those comments?  Or worse yet, made them?  I have… both heard and said them.  Getting old can be a “pain in the … you know what.”  We then go and take some over-the-counter pain relief, which typically takes up to 30 minutes to take effect, hits our entire body, not just where the pain is, and often does not really do the job.  In addition, there are all of the bad side effects you get from typical pain relievers on the market.

How about nature’s way?  Or, to be more specific, God’s medicine?  One of my favorites is Marjoram.  Here are a few related things it is good for (there are many more):

  • Arthritis
  • Bone spurs
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Cartilage injury
  • Cramps/charley horses
  • Muscle aches/fatigue/spasms
  • Sprains
  • Stiffness
  • Muscle tension
  • Tendinitis
  • Whiplash (muscle)
  • Muscle tone

Maybe you are beginning to get the picture:  got pain?  If it is related to your muscles, or your tenders, or your cartilage, or arthritis or bone spurs, then this is for you!

The wonderful thing is, FORGET BENGAY!  This goes to work in a minute or two when you rub it on where it hurts.  I have treated my knee, which hurt when I climbed stairs (does not hurt any more!), my elbow, which was very really sore (no longer sore!).  In both cases, after a while of no pain, I stopped using the oil on those areas.  Both pains came back and I put more on for a few weeks.  After that, no pain even without the Marjoram.

My back is a mess.  The doctor’s have a name for it I cannot repeat here.  Lots of bone spurs, arthritis, compressed discs, just a mess.  Every morning when I got up, I could not stand up straight.  I had to do back exercises to get it in shape, and I still had back pain.  Marjoram fixed that.  Well, not just Marjoram…

White Fir Needles – Another Source of Pain Relief

What I did not tell you above is, I actually started using TWO oils for my various pains.  And it was the combination that really did the best job – especially on my back.  The second oil is White Fir Oil.  Here is a related list of what it is good for:

  • Bursitis
  • Cartilage inflammation
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Muscle fatigue
  • Muscle pain
  • Overexercised muscles
  • Sprains

There is some overlap here, of course, and that is a good thing.  Together, these two make a KILLER PAIN RELIEF for anything to do with muscles, joints, tendons, and cartilage inflammation.  And arthritis.  A few drops of each rubbed on where it hurts will bring relief in just a very few minutes.  And, as far as I know, there are no side effects to worry about!

As I have said before, and will repeat often, when you are putting medicine in your body, get the best.  You don’t want any impurities to cause side effects.  Impurities are not good for you!  And note:  putting these on your skin equals putting them in your body.  Your skin absorbs them, and very quickly, the oils are in your blood stream, and being distributed around inside.  So there will be some effect everywhere, but most of it will be concentrated in the area that you put the oils.

When you put them on your skin, “neat” (no need to dilute), let them absorb in before putting clothes over the same area.  Otherwise, some of the oil will be absorbed by the clothing, where it will not do you much good.

I continue to put both oils on my back.  Perhaps it will be possible to stop in the future, but I don’t really care.  I put it on in the morning, and before bed.

Today, I had a sore leg.  I thought it was my hip joint.  So I put the oils on the side of my hip, and as I was rubbing it on, I discovered a very sore muscle.  I made sure that got both oils.  Within a minute, it stopped hurting! Apparently it was NOT my hip point after all.  Here I am, hours later, and still no pain.

So there is no excuse now for you complaining about your aching back, or your arthritis, or your tennis elbow!  Get some of Nature’s Best pain relief!
