- There are an endless number of essential oils for inflammation, some are better than others due to the chemical components found in the plants that have anti-inflammatory properties. To tackle inflammation we have formulated a superb blend to give you the relief you need when you need it. This blend has essential oils with anti-inflammatory properties such as Copaiba, Frankincense, Turmeric, Spruce, Lavender, Chamomile- German and Ginger come together in this symbiotic blend with their fortuitous analgesic properties to ease inflammation, arthritis, bursitis, knee pain and joint inflammation.
- Depending on the type of inflammation you are looking to tackle, you can use the oils in different ways. For anything muscular, for joint pain, and skin related, topical application is the optimal way to use essential oils. It is also highly recommended to only use essential oils on skin that is not broken. To make a topical treatment, blend 10-15 drops of essential oil in 1 oz of carrier oil or unscented cream. Check out our dilution guide to blending! Make it work even harder by blending essential oils into carrier oils such as arnica and st john's wort or trauma oil. For skin inflammation due to eczema or psoriasis try blending into Moringa oil. For inflammation of the lungs and airways due to colds and flus, inhalation is the way to go either with a diffuser, with steam inhalation or with a personal essential oil inhaler.
- There are a number of essential oils that have shown an ability to reduce inflammation in research studies. Due to the chemical components in essential oils and the plants they are derived from, certain oils have antioxidant, antinociceptive, neuroprotective, antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties. For example, Copaiba can reduce soreness while reducing inflammation, Lavender long studied for many maladies has been shown to reduce pain and inflammation, Ginger helps by increasing circulation thereby reducing inflammation. Chamomile- German is noted for its antiinflammatory properties and is an incredible oil that targets muscle spasm and aids the body by relieving soreness.
- To make an effective essential oil blend for inflammation, first you should understand the type of inflammation you would like to relieve. Is there bruising? Is there pain from a muscle injury or muscle spasm? Is the inflammation due to arthritis, bursitis and joint inflammation? The next step is to look up research studies of essential oils based on the type of inflammation you are looking to relieve. We like to read through studies that involve humans rather than animals. For example, Nutmeg and Clove in very small amounts have been shown to help relieve arthritis, but since these oils are very “hot” it is wise to blend them with skin soothing oils such as Frankincense and Lavender.
- Because essential oils are powerful enough to be effective when inhaled or applied topically, we do not recommend ingesting them unless advised by an aromatherapist due to the side effects they can cause. Rather, we recommend making an Inflammation Aid massage oil or cream by following our dilution guidelines for applying topically. For using as a belly massage cream, be sure to apply the oils in a clockwise direction (the direction of digestion) to effectively support your digestive system.
Apply Topically: Our Single Essential Oils and Blends are 100% pure and undiluted. To apply to the skin, dilute with a high-quality Carrier Oil. See our dilution chart here. We recommend performing a skin patch test when using a new essential oil topically.
