Nine Essential Oils For Pain Relief

When pain strikes whether it is headache, backache, arthritis, rheumatism or whichever, the first thought to our mind is usually over the counter drugs, though they may provide  some relief, but if used consistently overtime, their effectiveness begins to decline and of course, they do leave us with side effects later in life. 

One way to continue to enjoy their effectiveness is to reduce the frequency of their usage and good enough, nature gave us even better alternatives in the form of essential oils, used also in aromatherapy.
