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.

Essential oils not only reduce pains, but also have other health benefits with virtually no side effect if used moderately and in adequate proportions.  The analgesics, sedative and anti inflammatory properties in essential oils are very useful for alleviating pains and other inflammatory symptoms.

Here are 9 Essential Oils that alleviates Pains:

1.  Peppermint Oil

  7. Why are Americans so worked up about health care reform? Statements such as "don't touch my Medicare" or "everyone should have access to state of the art health care irrespective of cost" are in my opinion uninformed and visceral responses that indicate a poor understanding of our health care system's history, its current and future resources and the funding challenges that America faces going forward. While we all wonder how the health care system has reached what some refer to as a crisis stage. Let's try to take some of the emotion out of the debate by briefly examining how health care in this country emerged and how that has formed our thinking and culture about health care. With that as a foundation let's look at the pros and cons of the Obama administration health care reform proposals and let's look at the concepts put forth by the Republicans? Schmerzmittel Shop
