Muscle Soothe Essential Oil
A carefully selected blend of Camphor, Black Pepper & Lavender Pure Essential Oils
To Help Soothe Tired Muscles
Many different muscle relaxers are on the market. However, the vast majority contain potentially damaging chemicals. For those who suffer from muscle spasms or overexerted muscles not many natural options are available. But one good alternative treatment is using essential oils.
Essential oils are oils that have a strong scent and have been distilled from natural plant compounds. The oils have high concentrations of antioxidants. They have been found to work by increasing the amount of oxygen that gets to cells and by cleaning out the lymphatic system. Essential oils work as natural pain relievers by penetrating the skin and being carried to muscles in the body through the bloodstream and by being deposited directly to tissues.
Our Muscle Soothe oil blend contains three incredible essential oils used to help release tension and soothe muscles.
Camphor – A detoxifier and a stimulant for the circulatory system, camphor oil excites blood circulation and gives relief to rheumatic diseases, arthritis, and gout. It is also considered an antiphlogistic, that is, it reduces the swelling of body parts. This is yet another beneficial effect of proper blood circulation. Camphor also has excellent antispasmodic properties meaning that it can also help relieve cramps and spasms in the muscles.
Black Pepper – Because of its warming, anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties, black pepper oil works to reduce muscle injuries, tendonitis, and symptoms of arthritis and rhematism.
A 2014 study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine assessed the efficacy of aromatic essential oils on neck pain. When patients applied a cream containing black pepper essential oil to the neck daily for a four-week period, the group reported improved pain tolerance and significant improvement of neck pain.
The analgesic effect of Black Pepper has been demonstrated widely. A three week small scale case study in America relating to the use of Black Pepper on patients with arthritic hands demonstrated a 23% decrease in pain. The study also demonstrated a 21% decrease in stiffness, 18% improvement in dexterity and a 13% increase in strength.
Lavender - Lavender is an all around therapeutic oil. I’m sure you already know how good this stuff is! Lavender’s wealth of therapeutic actions mean it’s a great fit for anti-inflammatory, calming, and parasympathetic inducing purposes. The anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties contained within lavender oil are beneficial to use on aching muscles. Lavender will also ease swelling and improve blood circulation.
