Pain Away Essential Oil Roll On
Pain conditions are not only rampant, but they can be difficult to treat with conventional medication. Chances are, you’re reading this because you are struggling with pain and tired of the bandage solutions that just treat it symptomatically and come with a myriad of side effects.
You want a real change instead of temporary relief.
Each kind of pain and each person is different, but taking a whole body approach and using natural solutions like essential oils can address many painful conditions in a much more direct way.
Do It Yourself!
The problem with pain relief lies is that there is no great solution. If pain is considered a symptom, are you more focused on managing symptoms or discovering what the symptoms point to? And no matter the goal, with painful conditions, it's difficult to do more than damage control simply because you have to ease it in order to function.
Natural pain remedies are often less invasive than medications and usually include lifestyle changes that begin to address the underlying causes. With something like essential oils, you can easily incorporate them into your lifestyle while taking advantage of pain-relieving effects that – when used properly – carry few side effects. (1)
With that said, you should always work with your doctor to determine the best strategy for tackling pain and its causes. Use caution and learn of contraindications and interactions before introducing supplements and essential oils when you are already taking medications.

Safety & Contraindications
When it comes to drug interactions and contraindications, there are literally textbooks devoted to the study of essential oil safety, and I must defer to the chemists, pharmacists and experts who understand this complicated topic more than I.
With that said, as a trained researcher and doctor, I think it’s important to note that there is virtually no research out there discussing how essential oils interact with drugs in human clinical trials. Essentially, what this means is that essential oil safety is still a wild frontier in the science community and no one really knows (for certain) how essential oils will interact with drugs or your body.
Let common sense be your guide. Still, be sure to maintain proper dilutions, and general safety considerations still apply. As always, discontinue use if any adverse reactions occur and consult your physician immediately.
