Essential Oils for Arthritis

By    |   Monday, 09 May 2016 03:06 PM

Essential oils may help relieve arthritis symptoms because of their anti-inflammatory properties. When applied through topical means, they absorb quickly through the skin to effectively reach areas of inflammation.

This approach is supported by research published in the January 2012 issue of Phytotherapy Research that shows topical application of essential oils reduced the severity of arthritis in lab studies.

Here are a few essential oils that may help provide relief for arthritis pain:

1. Essential oils from ginger provide relief through sensory nerve endings to reduce pain. The oils have a slight burning sensation that mimics spicy pepper, but after a few seconds relieves arthritis inflammation and pain, says Dr. Josh Axe, a doctor of natural medicine and clinical nutritionist. He also says curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, helps to relieve rheumatoid arthritis.

2. The anti-inflammatory properties in orange oil also may help combat arthritis pain. Axe recommends diluting a few drops of the citrus essential oil with a teaspoon of avocado or almond oil and applying to the arthritic pain area.

3. Frankincense and myrrh oils have been shown to reduce inflammation and pain. Frankincense has long been used as an herbal remedy and may relieve knee pain caused by arthritis, according to Everyday Health. Myrrh has been used for centuries to ease the pain in arthritic joints.

4. Like ginger oils, cayenne pepper oil has a burning sensation that lessens over time to relieve pain and throbbing in the joints and muscles, according to New Health Advisor.

5. Eucalyptus essential oil is said to improve circulation to help the body with a natural healing process. Menthol oil can help reduce inflammation in the joints and muscles. It is sometimes mixed with eucalyptus and other essential oils for arthritis treatment, New Health Advisor notes. Chamomile oil may provide circulation and detoxification of the blood when applied to affected areas of arthritis. Rosemary oil promotes circulation and has anti-inflammatory benefits as well.

In addition to topical application, the smell of essential oils may also have benefits to help with arthritis relief. The scents work effectively on pain relief by bringing positive results to the brain’s emotional center, celebrity physician Dr. Mehmet Oz tells The Arthritis Foundation. Essential oils such as peppermint, jasmine, and citrus may provide pain relief, relaxation, and rejuvenation.
