Arthritis Pain Relief Using Essential Oils

Several years ago, I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis and was suffering with a lot of pain in my knees, elbows and wrists. This caused me to look for natural remedies that would help minimize my pain.

Since I was already interested in essential oils this was a natural place for me to start.

What I soon discovered was that, like most forms of medication, essential oils were involved in many remedies currently used in the medical field.

I found that Essential Oils can be quite effective at providing welcome relief from the pain of arthritis and should be considered as part of any treatment, with the consent of your doctor of course.

I therefore recommend you ask your doctor to include them in his/her overall plan for your treatment. In many cases, medications that s/he would normally prescribe can be replaced by essential oils.


Essential oil can be very beneficial in treating arthritis but some precautions should be taken:

• Before applying essential oil to healthy skin it should be diluted with a carrier oil to avoid irritation.

• When using oils in aromatherapy you may experience some discomfort such as headache or nausea. This could indicate that the scent is too strong or that another oil should be chosen.


The first thing you need to do for arthritis pain relief is address the inflammation.

After a bath or shower and while your skin is still warm and moist, massage a couple drops of Wintergreen onto the sore area. Wintergreen has a high percentage of methyl salicylate which is the active ingredient in aspirin and other pain-relieving products such as Bengay and Tiger Balm.

Wintergreen will cause a heating sensation and, in some cases, may become uncomfortable. If this occurs add a carrier oil to the area instead of water. Water may only increase the burning. Soap and water can work if you don't have carrier oil handy.

The carrier oil I recommend can be purchased at this link - Fractionated Coconut Oil

For more long-term treatment, there are several oils which can assist in keeping your arthritis symptoms under control. Many of these oils can be used individually as well as together in a blend that attacks your problem from different directions.

For much more information on this topic, please visit my page Arthritis Pain Relief. On this page we will discuss several oils and examine how they can be used to help in areas such as:

• circulation, • sedation, • inflammation, • uric acid, • neuralgia, • osteoarthritis, • gout, • etc.
