Why these essential oils?

Peppermint: a powerful painkiller

The Peppermint essential oil brings to this synergy its powerful local analgesic properties that will help reduce pain of nervous origin. This oil is composed of more than 30% menthol which, when applied to the skin, stimulates the cold receptors by activating their calcium channels resulting in an anesthetic action by cold sensation. At the same time, menthol depresses the pain receptors to inhibit the transmission of the nervous message to the brain. Thus, the Peppermint will relieve the pains of muscular or neuralgic type.

Finally, this essential oil will calm the nervous inflammation related to the lesion of the nerve in cause in the neuralgia by preventing the inflammatory substances from forming.

Lemon Eucalyptus as an anti-inflammatory

essential oil of Lemon Eucalyptus

Finally, this oil also brings its analgesic properties to the skin to alleviate pain related to certain types of injury, such as nerve damage.

The essential oil of Lemon Eucalyptus acts effectively against all types of pain whether muscular, joint or neuralgic.

The Roman Chamomile to limit the spasms related to the pain

The Roman Chamomile essential oil brings monoterpene esters to this synergy. Among them, we can count on isobutyl angelate which is a very spasmolytic molecule. It will make it possible to attenuate the nervous spasms causing the neuralgic pain.

It is also very used in external use for its anti-inflammatory action being exerted on the skin. Finally, it brings its calming and relaxing properties to help you relax.

Why this vegetable oil?

St. John's wort: the reference against neuralgia

Effective against pain sitting on nerves and joints, St. John's Wort Oily Macerate is highly anti-inflammatory due to its hypericin content. It reinforces the action of essential oils to limit the extent of the inflammatory reaction, while serving as a very good conductor of essential oil into the bloodstream. It will thus make it possible to calm the neuralgic pains.
