Aromatherapy Recipes for Arthritis
Essential Oil Blend #1
Essential Oil Blend #2
Select either Blend #1 or Blend #2 and blend all of the oils from your chosen blend together well. Store in an airtight dark-colored glass container. Gently massage into arthritic joints using a small amount of oil. It is strongly recommended that you discuss proper massage techniques for your particular form of arthritis with your doctor. Depending on your situation, your doctor may advise you not to massage your joints. If you experience any discomfort, discontinue use and consult your medical practitioner.
Carrier Oil Suggestions
Carrier oils that possess anti-inflammatory properties include Hemp Seed, Jojoba and Pomegranate Seed Oils. Although not a vegetable oil, emu oil possesses strong anti-inflammatory properties and can be used as a carrier oil.
