Essential Oils for Knee Pain
Inflammation or injury of the knee joint is among the most common causes of knee pain.
Such causes can be easily alleviated by the topical application of oil blends, made with massage oils and essential oils.
It works because essential oils have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.
An analgesic is a substance that alleviates or relieves pain, and the majority of essential oils are analgesic.
Actually, there are two types of these oils: one gives cooling relief, and the other gives warming relief.
Examples of cooling oils are wintergreen, peppermint and eucalyptus.
Oils with warming relief are ginger, thyme, clove, lemongrass and vetiver.
Cooling relief numbs down the pain, and warming relief warms the area, reducing pain and improving circulation.
What about Knee Pain?
If you have knee joint pain, numb the pain down with cooling oils.
If there is inflammation, muscle pain and swelling, use warming oils to reduce the inflammation and promote healing.
So, the kind of relief you need will determine the type of the oil to use.
By the way, warming analgesic essential oils are good for knee pain, which is related to cold weather.
