How to relieve arthritis with essential oils?

Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage surrounding the bone in the joint wears out abnormally, and this wear and tear leads to the degradation of the entire joint system: the ligaments, the bone, the muscles and the synovial fluid that lubricates the joint are altered. This deterioration causes the bones to eventually touch each other, resulting in stiffness and blockages. With a blend of anti-inflammatory and analgesic essential oils, don't let osteoarthritis bother you.

Why these essential oils?

Lemon Eucalyptus to limit inflammation

Osteoarthritis is a pain that occurs due to wear and tear on the joints. The Lemon Eucalyptus essential oil is just such a specialist in fighting rheumatic pain.

Its powerful anti-inflammatory capacity is induced by the important presence of citronellal which will fight against the inflammation which often appears with time. Citronellal works by mobilizing white blood cells (immune system cells) and inhibiting prostaglandins E2, mediators of inflammation.

The citronellal also has analgesic properties which will largely decrease the felt pain. Indeed, the association antalgic/inflammatory is ideal as anti-pain.

Nutmeg: a local skin analgesic

The essential oil of Nutmeg is a very good analgesic (reduces pain) but also analgesic (inhibits pain).

Thanks to the very diversified presence of monoterpenes, it is also a general tonic and will give you dynamism. The mixture associating the anti-pain effect of the essential oil of Lemon Eucalyptus and this tonic aspect, will promote the resumption of your activities. Indeed, the activities such as the walk are important in the fight against the osteoarthritis because they support the reconstruction of the cartilage.

Sweet Clover: the anti-inflammatory par excellence

Methyl salicylate, a terpene ester, makes up 95-99% of Scented Wintergreen essential oil. The negativizing nature of the esters gives them potent anti-inflammatory properties. Methyl salicylate specializes in muscle and joint pain; its action comes from an inhibition of pro-inflammatory enzymes.

It is an excellent percutaneous analgesic: by warming the skin (thanks to a rubefacient effect), it will allow to calm with effectiveness the pains of the articulations. Indeed, the heating of the skin dilates the capillaries which increases the blood flow and has the effect of relieving the pain. The methyl salicylate comes to associate with the citronellal (aldehyde) of the Lemon Eucalyptus to, together, take care of the articular pains via different ways of action.

Why this vegetable oil?

Arnica for a reinforced analgesic and anti-inflammatory action

To fight against osteoarthritis, several anti-inflammatory oils are not too much. The Arnica Oily Macerate therefore naturally finds its place in this synergy, alongside Lemon Eucalyptus and Sweet Clover, to provide its own anti-inflammatory molecules: lactones. Moreover, Arnica has analgesic properties which also reinforce those of Nutmeg. One thus obtains a vegetable oil support which also fulfills the role of active principle, to relieve you durably, and as soon as possible.
