The power of plants is important, and their action on our health is no longer to be proven. Today, essential oils are on the rise because we are rediscovering their multiple benefits. They have in particular analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties which make it possible to relieve pain effectively. Here is the list of those you need to have at home:
Rich in citronellal, eucalyptus essential oil is often used to repel biting insects. But this is not his main virtue. Tests on mice have shown that eucalyptus exerts pain-relieving activity, mainly thanks to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Thus, citronellal would inhibit the mediators of inflammation and soothe the sensations of heat that result from it. This HE, therefore, has calming properties and would relieve joint and muscle pain. It would also have antibacterial, antioxidant and mucolytic properties which would treat ENT infections. Diluted in vegetable oil, you will apply it by massaging the affected area.
In the case of pain, analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs are most often prescribed. Most, however, cause unwanted effects, while essential oils offer a gentle approach and allow long-term treatment. What are the most effective pain-relieving and essential anti-inflammatory oils?
In the face of pain, we don’t always think about essential oils. Aromatherapy is, however, an exciting alternative to pain-relieving or anti-inflammatory drugs.
