Essential Oils for Relief of Chronic Pain


Chronic pain can knock you off your feet. It can feel crippling and no one around you can understand the magnitude of it.  Those that suffer from this type of pain often suffer from depression and/or find themselves using many types of pharmaceuticals.

Essential oils have provided me (and my family) with natural relief for my chronic pain and depression with no side effects.  These are the oils that have helped the most:

  • Peppermint essential oil, used externally, can provide relief from pain. Because of it’s cooling property, it is also used to help reduce fever.
  • Wintergreen essential oil is easily absorbed through the skin and its Menthol Salicylate induces numbness and has a anesthetic effect in the nerves of the area it is applied.  It also increases circulation brings warmth to that area, which induces relaxation and helps relieve tension.
  • Clove essential oil has a stimulating effect on the mind which helps remove mental exhaustion and fatigue. Clove oil also induces sleep and is helpful to insomnia patients. When mixed with salt, and applied on the forehead, clove oil gives a cooling effect and helps with relief from headaches.
  • Helichrysum essential oil is anti spasmodic and anti inflammatory in nature and can give you quick relief in cases of muscle spasm and help soothe inflammation.
  • Idaho Balsam Spruce essential oil is traditionally used for muscular aches and pains.  The warm aroma of balsam fir soothes and rejuvenates body and mind.  It is believed to create an uplifting sense of well-being.
  • The Essential Oil of Elemi, with all its analgesic properties, is effective in alleviating pain related to cold, fever, sprains headache, migraine, muscular pain, pain in joints, pain in ears etc.
  • Idaho Balsam Fir essential oil contains alpha-pinene, beta pinene, camphene, and limonene. When used together, these key constituents can work to help soothe localized muscular discomfort and bring welcome relief to those suffering from joint pain, arthritis, and rheumatism.
  • Frankincense Essential Oil is great for relieving muscle aches, pain and inflammation.  It also helps to relieve pain caused by rheumatism.
  • Lemongrass essential oil helps reduce pain in muscles, joints, toothache and headache etc.  It helps relieve body pain and inflammation resulting from sports injuries, tendonitis, and can help to repair tears to cartilage and tendons. I found great relief for my torn rotator cuff and have had no pain for over 8 months, avoiding surgery!
  • Palo Santo essential oil comes from Equador and is highly regarded in the spiritual realm by the Shamans. And the indigenous people have used it for thousands of years for its powerful healing properties. It is used for  rheumatism, immune stimulant, muscle pain, viruses, inflammation, and to help support the nervous system.
  • Copaiba essential oil also comes to us from Equador. It is a powerful pain reliever and anti inflammatory.  I combine it with clove oil for relief with sciatica.

Young Living has created some amazing blends to help with pain relief. They are:

  • PanAway – contains wintergreen, helichrysum, clove, and peppermint.
  • Deep Relief Roll-on – contains peppermint, Idaho Balsam Fir, Clove, Vetiver, Wintergreen, Lemon, Helichrysum, Copaiba, and Coconut oil.  A favorite in our house!
  • Relieve It – contains Spruce, black pepper, hyssop, and peppermint.

It’s important to remember that every body is different.  What may work for one person, may not work for another.  Some oils may be too “hot” and will require dilution with a carrier oil.  Experiment to learn what works best for you.

Progessence Plus – The Magic Bullet for Women


Progessence Plus

Progessence Plus allows women to have natural hormonal balance the way nature intended.  It is an essential oil blend of 95% essential oils, Frankincense, copaiba (reduces inflammation), rosewood and cedarwood (aids with the absorption), bergamot, and peppermint, in a natural Vitamin E base. Wild yam (a natural progesterone) is dissolved directly into the oils.

Specifically formulated by Dr. Dan Purser and D. Gary Young, to maximize the effects of progesterone by utilizing an innovative delivery system;  a super micronized progesterone and frankincense mixture so you can absorb it better through the skin.  Progessence Plus is the first-ever progesterone serum on the market. It is portable, has a pleasant smell, and does not require the cycling of application sites like synthetics do.

Your pituitary:

Produces Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) is a hormone found in humans and other animals. FSH regulates the development, growth, pubertal maturation, and reproductive processes of the body.  FSH comes out of the front of your pituitary. Its very fragile. If your brain shifts you can damage the stalk. FSH comes from the pituitary, goes to the ovaries, stimulates them to make P4 (progesterone).

The most common cause of low progesterone in younger women is pituitary damage. Trauma from stress, surgery, car accidents (whiplash), traumatic shock, tumors, drug inhaling (vaso restrictor), cheerleading, gymnastics, Traumatic Brain Injury, childbirth issues (sheehans’s Syndrome), etc.

Low progesterone symptoms:

  • PMS (average menopause is age 51)
  • Headaches, especially bad migraine headaches.
  • Endometriosis-progesterone resistance
  • Hot flashes-low progesterone levels
  • Day and night sweats
  • Tmj disorders
  • Insomnia
  • Demyelination which leads to neuropathies. Covering over the nerves
  • Lack of libido (feelings of sexiness)
  • Hair loss
  • Increased acne

Progesterone and estrogen balance each other in the body. Estrogen is a steroid compound hormone that is made up of a group of three different hormones: estrone, estradiol, and estriol. Estrogen is primarily responsible for regulating menstrual cycles. It also plays a central role in other uniquely female functions, such as reproduction and lactation.

Symptoms of Low Estrogen Levels

  • Fatigue
  • Hot Flashes
  • Night Sweats
  • Memory Lapses
  • Difficulty Concentrating
  • Joint Pain
  • Vaginal Dryness
  • Dry Skin
  • Symptoms of High Estrogen Levels
  • Mood Swings
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Loss of  Libido
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Weight Gain
  • Breast Tenderness
  • Irregular Periods
  • Water Retention/Bloating
  • Hypoglycemia

P4 does not equal synthetic progesterone-like chemicals called progestogens; which bind to the body’s progesterone receptors and function for the most part, just like progesterone.  Because they are chemically different than natural progesterone, they sometimes have side effects or actions that are different than progesterone. (For one, they are believed to increase your risk of breast cancer).

Progessence Plus is the fully formed progesterone. Not a yam precursor like some of the “natural” products available today.  Pure progesterone is the end product -super micronized for tiny particle size-less than 5 microns. The tinier – the better absorbed by your body.


Product Use

For women only (Don’t use directly on men, it lowers their libido).  Can be used by all menstruating females over the age of twelve.

Apply 2–4 drops twice daily on neck area. For added effect, apply 1–2 drops along forearms twice daily. Does not need to be rotated on different  areas of the body or cycled throughout the month.

Individual needs may vary. Dosage and duration could vary from person to person based on age, current progesterone levels, and menstruation
(pre-menopausal, post-menopausal).
