- Castor oil has been used for thousands of years to treat a wide variety of ailments, reduce pain and stimulate the immune system. Its high concentration of a special fatty acid called ricinoleic acid is thought to impart healing properties. A 2009 study found it effective in relieving arthritic symptoms . Another study researching the effects of ricinoleic acid on inflammation found that it offered ‘capsaicin-like’ anti-inflammatory properties .
- Lemongrass oil helps improve blood circulation and therefore relieve muscle spasms, backaches, sprains and cramps. Its anti-inflammatory properties comes from the Limonene that is present in the oil .
- Wintergreen oil is a beneficial oil distilled from the leaves of the Gaultheria procumbens evergreen plant. Its signature minty aroma is quite similar to that of peppermint oil. It has one of the most researched benefits in pain management and numbing of soreness, as its primary active component of methyl salicylate makes up 85-98% of its profile. Naturally antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, research has showed that the oil is capable of acting as a natural analgesic (to reduce pain), anti-arthritic, antiseptic and astringent .
- Warming and sweet, Marjoram essential oil is a curative oil that is known to be a pain reliever. Its analgesic effects provide relief for muscle aches and other general pains .
- Due to its warming and antispasmodic properties, Battaglia suggests that Black Pepper is valued as a rubifacient oil making it useful for muscular aches and pains, arthritic stiffness and tired aching limbs; whilst Davis considers it helpful for poor circulation [6,7]. A study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine in 2014 assessing the efficacy of aromatic essential oils on neck pain found improved pain tolerance and significant improvement in neck pain in patients after using a blend of Black Pepper, Marjoram, Lavender and Peppermint for four-week period .
- Myrrh oil is studied to possess anti-inflammatory properties and can help suppress inflammation and intensity of joint inflammation .
