Does anyone use/have success with using essential oils as a rub to help inflamation and pain?
I recently started doing that, gotta work on being more consistent with it
Which kind and/or brand do you use?
I only use doTERRA, for pain I've been using Frankincense
Carmen, what have been your results with using frankincense oil? That one is very expensive.
I use many
It helps alot. İ make all my own bath products, muscle rubs, face masks, and other stuff
I go to a local shop that sells quality oils. I'm wondering if anyone had found a blend that works great
Edens Garden is a great company with high quality oils. Much more affordable than the others, and just as good. They usually have a good sale around Black Friday!
Jennifer Keene Edens Garden is wonderful. Their products are great!
I would love to hear of recipes that have worked for any of you!
I've been working with essential oils for a few years now and the best mix I have made for pain and inflammation is: 1/4 oz beeswax (grated), 1/4 cup oil ( coconut, olive, grapeseed, sweet almond) you can use just one oil or a mix its up to you and what you like. Put the oil in a double boiler or a stainless steel bowl over a pot of simmering water. Add the beeswax and stir while it melts. Once it is melted remove the bowl from the pot and sit on a towel to absorb the water on the bottom. You don't want water getting into your mix, it will ruin it. To this add your essential oils. 5 drops Rosemary, 5 drops Clove, 10 drops Frankincense, 12 drops Clary-sage, and 5 to 10 drops of either eucalyptus, pine needle or scotch pine, your choice. Pour into a glass container. I get mine at the dollar store. This will set up into a smooth silky rub that will stay fairly solid even in hot weather.
I should add that this does not smell good or bad. The rosemary and clove oils take some getting used to as they are strong smelling. I add more of them now. This is a beginners recipe and you can change the amounts of oils to suit your needs.
Thank you so much!!!
Yes. I am using the deep blue tub plus I made a roller of deep blue and copaiba oils. So far it has been helping
Must be a specific company's blend? Which one please? Thank you!
Kathleen Shipman I’m using doterra
DoTerra may seem more expensive but I have found them to be more effective and that it takes fewer drops of the DoTERRA brand than the cheaper brands. If you become s Wholesale user, you get the wholesale price and no sales pressure plus the most extensive access to information on each oil and how to use them. And DoTERRA and Young Living are the only two companies that state you can consume their oils (most of the oils but not all). Other companies have to state on their bottle that they are not for consumption. I wonder why. Just give DoTERRA oils the sniff test compared to the cheaper oils and you will see the difference
I use magnesium oil - not a miracle worker but does help ease pain.
I use to use deep blue by doterra I literally put it all over my body Ever night and ever morning as I was in so much pain and now only when I need it changing my diet has been a life saver for me! No gluten, no sugar, no dairy and no soy! I feel amazing almost everyday with a few bad days here and there! Let me know if you have any other questions

I'm just learning DoTerra oils. I am finding Deep Blue to be really good for nerve pain but not so helpful for joints. Lavender is amazing for sinus congestion and coughing. I consume it with 1 drop in a small amount of water. Frankinsense on my feet may be producing a flare which could mean it is killing something viral or bacterial which is probably triggering my RA. I am not for sure about that but so far, it doesn't alleviate my pain. Digest Zen is phenomenal for heartburn and stomach issues. Rub on tummy for super fast relief and ingest for gut health. 2 drops in water. I have ordered Copaiba oil which is supposed to be the equivalent of Cannibus oil but without getting you high and it is legal. I have not yet received it but am excited about all that it claims to do.
That zen where can I get it??
I'd like to try some
The thing that helps me the most is this oil and it has a silly name but it actually helps my arthritis pain when it’s really hurting and stiff.
Where can I get this one?
Linda William I bought it here in Portland, let me see where it can be boughten online and see if there is anywhere else physically.

And I use about two squirts for my hips and tail bone and then also about two squirts for my hands because I wake up with my hands stiff so often. But adjust the squirts how you need. Sometimes I need about 3 to 4 squirts. It helps me sleep better because I am not in so much pain,
Amber Moyer thank you
