Essential Oils For Pain Relief, Muscle Ache, Inflammation, and much more. . . 
Essential oils can be really much more powerful than you might think and some of them are really great for pain relief and not only pain relief, they can also help with muscle tension, neuropathy, inflammation or migraines and much more. It is surprising that people do not use this amazing natural products more.
Essential oils can be used in many ways when you need to ease pain.  For example, use these oils in various lotions or creams, you can also use them in a bath, mix them with bathing salts, you can use them in massage oils or in classic aromatherapy.
Peppermint Essential Oil
If you have problems with headaches using Peppermint Essential Oil is amazing! Just four drops of peppermint oil in one tablespoon of olive oil or your choice of oil, applied gently on your temples and down the back of your neck, can help a lot. I would also suggest adding lavender or even rosemary essential oil, it enhances the effect.
Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender oil is sometimes called “king of essential oils”, because it has many various positive effects. Lavender essential oil is relaxing, pain and stress relieving, also has antimicrobial effects and helps with migraines and muscle tension.

I just love lavender oil, because I  sometimes have problems with sleeping and lavender is really great for this. I use lavender oil in my bath before I go to bed to fall asleep more easily and have better quality sleep.

Lavender essential oil is also often used to treat various aches and pains such as sore or tense muscles, joint pain, rheumatism, and sprains. Lavender Oil benefits also include relief from back pain. Getting a Lavender Oil massage will ease away many tension and pains!

I like to use lavender oil with chamomile oil, together it has strong pain relief effect.
Chamomile Oil
Chamomile Oil is very well known for its amazing and really strong anti-inflammatory effects. Really, it is something what works very well. It has been used for very long time for neuralgia, migraines, headaches, stress or PMS. It is something what works even much better when used together with lavender oil. these two together are very strong weapon again many kinds of pain.
Eucalyptus Oil
Eucalyptus Oil is another one that belongs among my favorite Essential Oils. I’m sure that everyone knows that beautiful smell eucalyptus has, but it has much much more. It is anti-inflammatory when used topically and also analgesic. Using this is very simple, you use it in a cream, in lotion, or in some oil and just massage those areas of your body where you feel the pain coming from. I love to take a bath in 1 cup of epsom salts and add10 yo 15 drops of eucalyptus oil.  It is also recommended for the treatment of strong muscular aches and pains, strains and/or sprains, and nerve pain.
Juniper Oil
Juniper oil is another pain relief essential oil. Why? Because this essential oil has strong antispasmodic and also strong antireumatic effects. Usually this essential oil is used in a lotion or cream that helps with muscle spasm and also with joint pain and muscle pain. Juniper oil also strengthens your nerves, and is also sometimes helpful in patients with neuropathic pain if used regularly. Juniper essential oil also has strong stimulant properties and it should always be used in the morning or during the day, and never near bedtime, because you might have problems falling asleep.
No-Mo-Pain Essential Oil Blend due to the aspirin- like properties of Birch and the powerful anti-inflammatory properties of the other oils, this blend helps to reduce pain, headaches, swelling, bleeding and stimulating quicker healing, helps circulation.
Pain - Anti-Inflammatory  this blend really works for me, helping me relax - Helps to calm nerves and soothe muscles and joints after exercise.

Hot Tiger Balm Recipe
Hot Tiger Balm includes a blend of special oils and herbs that relieves pain by helping increase the blood circulation. Such oils as camphor and eucalyptus increase the blood flow on the surface of the skin, which gives the balm its hot feeling and reduces pain to bring relief. The balm soothes many different ailments, such as muscle, neck and joint pain, arthritis, headaches and respiratory problems.

Making Hot Tiger Balm at home.

Add more oils to increase the effect or add less for a low-intensity balm appropriate for minor problems.
I warmed the oil over a double boiler (actually a cheap pot of water and a small bowl I picked up at the thrift store.) The oil goes in the bowl over the gently boiling water, so the oil doesn’t burn.

Combine 1 oz. beeswax and 1/4 cup almond, coconut or olive oil in a double boiler on low heat.
Stir the mixture until it melts. The beeswax and oils should combine as the beeswax melts.
Pour the mixture into a glass container. Do this before adding the essential oils, because the oils tend to evaporate quickly, so you should close the lid of the container as soon as you add them.

Add 10 drops camphor essential oil, 9 drops peppermint essential oil, 7 drops eucalyptus essential oil, 5 drops clove essential oil and 5 drops cinnamon essential oil to the melted beeswax mixture, and quickly stir.
Complete this step before the beeswax cools and hardens, because it will be difficult to add the essential oils at that point.
Close the lid tightly, and let the Hot Tiger Balm cool down and thicken before applying it to the affected area with your fingers. The consistency of the balm should be creamlike.
*Optional add ins
Add other essential oils to the balm for different effects, such as lavender oil for a calming effect, chamomile for sedating or sage for relaxation.

Oregano Essential Oil & Eucalyptus Salve: Recipe

Some scientific research suggests that Oregano Essential Oil has anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, and anti-parasitic properties. Although reliable human trials testing the efficacy of oregano oil in actually treating health conditions is limited, oregano oil has considerable anecdotal support for its healing properties. Personally, I put one drop of oil of oregano on my finger and then lick it off, each time I feel a cold coming on, and it seems to help. Mostly I rub oil of oregano in some carrier oil onto the bottom of my feet then put some socks on. I also massage oregano oil into my sore muscles.
3 C. olive oil, or oil of your choice
1/4 C. Shea butter
1.5 C. Beeswax
15 drops of Oregano essential oil
10 drops  Eucalyptus essential oil

1. Melt together the oil and shea butter in a double boiler along with beeswax
2. Once the beeswax has melted, mix the two together.
3. Stir, and add Eucalyptus oil, and Oregano oil.
4. Pour the mix into tin cans or small glass jars to cool.

The four pillars of the third metric are: well-being, wisdom, wonder, and giving.

Aloe Vera, Lavender & Peppermint Sunburn Spray

Aloe Vera and Lavender offer immediate relief, shorten healing times, and are soothing while Peppermint is cooling and refreshing.

- 4 oz organic Aloe Vera Gel
- 15 drops organic Lavender essential oil
- 10 drops Vitamin E Oil
- 2-5 drops organic Peppermint essential oil

Mix all ingredients, pour into a 4 ounce bottle, and apply to the skin as often as desired. Store in refrigerator to increase its cooling effect upon the skin.

Earl grey tea is an excellent treatment for sunburn. While you can drink a cup to help you relax, you can also make a remedy that you apply directly to the sunburn which will instantly stop the pain and help your burn to turn to a tan instead of peeling.
A bowl
5 tea bags
You need to run the tea bags through your coffee pot just like you’d do to make a pot of coffee. You could also just boil them in water if you prefer. Once the bags have brewed, pour the tea and the bags into a bowl and allow the liquid to cool to room temperature.
Soak a clean towel or small rag into the bowl, wring it out and then apply it directly to your sunburned area. Leave in place for about half an hour. It is recommended that you apply the tea to your sunburn within just a couple of hours after getting burned for the best results. The tea will immediately stop the pain and by morning, you should notice that the redness has gone down a bit and it looks more like a tan than a burn.

Potatoes can be used to make a wonderful sunburn remedy that will eliminate pain instantly and reduce inflammation and redness. While you can just place potato slices directly on the burn, this paste remedy is a bit more convenient to use and provides wonderful results.

To make it, you’ll need:

  • 2 medium sized potatoes
  • A grater or food processor
  • Cotton balls or gauze for applying

First, wash the potatoes and then grate them or add them to your food processor and process on puree. You can leave the peels in place. Actually, the peels have a lot of nutrients that are excellent for helping to alleviate pain and swelling so don’t bother peeling them first. Add water if needed to make them a bit moist. Once you have a liquid from the potatoes and any added water, soak cotton balls or gauze bandages in the paste and apply directly to your sunburn. The juices are what provides relief from pain and will help your burn to tan out nicely.

Repel Insects with. . .
Experts say that eucalyptus oil is just as effective as DEET in repelling mosquitoes! Eucalyptus oil can also be used to prevent deer tick bites
Want an easy (and tasty!) way to keep the mosquitoes off of you? Just eat lots of garlic! When your body secretes the garlic, bugs will be able to sense it, and they will steer clear of you! You can also get the same effect by sprinkling garlic powder around your home, if you don’t want to battle garlic breath!
Do you have an ant issue? Just put some white vinegar in a spray bottle, and lightly spritz areas where ants like to hang out. Make sure to test the solution first if you are going to be using it on carpet or a colored fabric.
Sprinkling cinnamon around the house is a great way to keep bugs out. Experts say that if you sprinkle the cinnamon in a line around the bugs’ point of entry, they will not cross it! Another interesting tip? Some folks say sprinkling cinnamon in kid’s sandboxes can keep bugs from hanging out in there as well!
If you want an insect repellent that doesn’t smell like garlic or onions, this one can be a great choice! You can mix vanilla extract with water for a smell good insect repellent! You can also add lemongrass, lavender, or peppermint essential oils to the mixture too, and you will be smelling great while you fight off the pests!
Citronella essential oil is a lemony grass-like plant that bugs absolutely hate! Just rub it on your skin!
You will want to stock up on natural insect repellents like lemongrass and catnip, eucalyptus, and neem oil to keep the mosquitoes, flies and other biting insects at bay. Replenish your home first aid kit and make sure you have plenty of witch hazel, aloe, lavender and tea tree oil on hand to treat sunburns, scrapes and bites.
