Aromatherapy for Pain Relief (HD) (CC)

Like. Share. Subscribe. [music] [music] Regardless of age,
sooner or later, we will all suffer aches; whether caused by intense exercise, arthritis,
or a fall. For those who prefer natural ingredients,
that are both safe and effective – for adults as well as children,
aromatherapy is the way to go. Keep in mind that essential oils should never be used without a base oil to dilute their strength.
Most essential oils are too powerful to be used directly on skin without being diluted.
Grape seed oil is a good base for most people, particularly those who have oily to normal
skin types, as it is has an astringent quality and will
not clog the pores. Almond oil may be preferable for those who
have dry skin, as it is very moisturizing. To complete this recipe you will need
a small amber glass bottle, to store your analgesic in,
either grapeseed or almond oil, and the essential oils cypress, rosemary,
cedarwood and peppermint. First, place 2 tablespoons of base oil in
the amber glass bottle. Use a measuring spoon not a dinner spoon. You may want to use a small funnel to avoid making a mess. Then add 12 drops of cypress essential oil, 6 drops of rosemary essential oil,
10 drops of cedarwood essential oil, and 6 drops of peppermint essential oil. [music] Gently swirl the ingredients together. The mixture will remain effective for up to three months, and the amber glass will protect the analgesic oil from light and air. As I mentioned in ‘Eucalyptus Essential Oil
for Headaches’, if you don’t have peppermint essential oil
you can use eucalyptus in its stead. And, for additional potency, you can add 6
drops of ginger essential oil. Ginger is excellent for sprains and bones
on the mend. If you’re one of those people who wakes up
feeling stiff and achy, apply this analgesic oil to your sore spots
before turning in at night. The inoffensive scent won’t keep you awake
nor repel your significant other, and you’ll wake up the next morning pain-free! This video is based on the article “Aromatherapy
