WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils are extracted from the leaves, stems, flowers, fruits, and branches of a variety of different plants. They are rich in several different nutrients and minerals that can help soothe arthritis pain and inflammation. Vitamins A, C, E and other complex chemicals and minerals occur naturally in several plants.
Several essential oils possess antioxidant, analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties which are thought to help reduce inflammatory symptoms and alleviate pain in some people. When certain essential oils are used or ingested, they can target joint inflammation and pain in similar ways to a pain-killing drug or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug

Eucalyptus Essential Oil (Smithii): This anti-inflammatory, analgesic oil is a popular choice for those suffering from a variety of aches and pains from sprains to stiffness.
Rosemary Essential Oil: This pain-relieving oil stimulates blood circulation, which makes it a popular remedy for arthritis, muscle and joint pains, and headaches. It promotes faster healing for wounds by facilitating the process of coagulation.
Juniper Berry Essential Oil: This warming, stimulating oil is known to be anti-inflammatory. As such, it is commonly used to relieve the uncomfortable pressure of fluid retention that is characteristic of arthritis and aching muscles, bones, and joints.
Carrier Oil of your choice: Carrier oils help to dilute essential oils before topical application, as their potency can be harmful when used in high concentrations without dilution. Carrier oils also help essential oils remain on the skin longer without quickly evaporating.
