Chronic pain is a real thing. A real big thing.
You can only take so many pills in one day and sometimes, the pain is still there. Have you thought about using essential oils blends for chronic pain?
One of the services at Scented Balance is helping you manage your chronic pain with seven different blends of pure essential oils.
What Is Chronic Pain?
Chronic pain is considered any pain that last longer than 3 months to 6 months after the initial onset. It could be caused by arthritis, cancer or any number of health concerns. It’s invisible but real and sometimes, not only the pain but the emotional distress that it causes can be debilitating.
How Do Essential Oils Work With Pain?
All pure essential oils have physical properties such as being analgesic, anti-bacterial or anti-inflammatory. And all pain has two things in common: it hurts (duh) and inflammation.
In doing research for pain blends, I look for oils that are antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory. While there are many other beneficial properties to the oils (both energetically and physically), these are the main properties that address chronic pain.
Antinociceptive means blocking the sensation of pain.
Anti-inflammatory refers to the ability to help fight pain and unwanted or abnormal immune system reactions by reducing inflammation.
When inflammation gets to the chronic stage, it wears on your immune system which makes you more susceptible to illness.
But I don’t stop there. When you have chronic pain for any length of time, usually depression and anxiety can accompany it. When creating these blends, I don’t stop at just one or two oils; I also consider the emotional distress and add in other oils to address these issues as well.
Combining several oils that have the antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory properties means that the blend has extra “oomph”.
The next thing I consider is how does it smell? The better the blend smells, the more apt you are to actually use it on a daily basis to help you manage your pain.
This is a very simplified explanation of how pure essential oils to help you manage chronic pain. I don’t pretend to be a doctor, so I prefer to keep it simple in layman’s terms.
