Essential Oil Recipes for Pain Relief

When you feel pain in any part of your body, all you are thinking is how to alleviate that pain.

There is a lot of prescription and over the counter pain killers that are available… Right!

Oh yeah, but, most of these pills have adverse side effects.

I remember when I broke my ankle a few years ago, the pain was too much and my doctor prescribed very strong pain medicines for me.

I took the pills the first day and they knocked me out…. took them the second day and the same thing happened.

And I was only taking them once a day instead of the 3 times my doctor recommended.

You can imagine what would have happened if I had taken the medication 3 times a day as recommended.

I could only endure the horrific side effects for only 3 days. I just stopped taking the medication after that!

I was willing to endure the pain than to continue with the pain killer. Oh, how I wish I knew more about natural pain killers and essential oils back then.

Did I forget to mention that pain medicines are very addictive too? And they could stop working for you if your body got used them.

It happened to my sister and it wasn’t fun at all! It really took a long time to wean her off of the very potent pain medicines and get her to a point where she stopped being dependent on them.

This is another reason I love essential oils, they are NOT addictive!
