Chronic pain is an epidemic. Painkiller subscription rates are higher than they've ever been, and more and more people have become dependent on painkillers. Whether it's over the counter or a prescription medication they're relying on, many people are looking for an alternative. How can you get natural pain relief? What are some good alternatives to the creams and pills available in the drug store?
Essential Oils for Natural Pain Relief
While there are multiple oils that are great for relieving pain, one of my favorites is orange essential oil. As a natural pain relief remedy, orange oil is commonly overlooked for some of the stronger oils. But it shouldn't be! Orange oil is a powerful healer!
Some others that pair well with orange oil are copaiba, frankincense, peppermint, and wintergreen. Together these essential oils make a great natural pain relief massage oil for a variety of painful conditions!
