Essential oils for pain?!

After my first dentist appointment (of three) to fix problems that could have been prevented. I found myself swollen, in pain, and sensitivity to everything. With the help of a good friend, I am being guided on the right way to use essential oils. She told me to use panaway, copaiba, and some carrier oil and rub in along my jawline. So, I said sure, I might as well!

As soon as I rubbed it on, it worked within minutes. I was in complete shock that it worked that fast. Within a few hours, I could feel the pain coming back so I tried it again and without fail it worked again. It was a nice relief to just put some essential oils on and it help reduce the pain!

Then, last night my hip and knee were on fire and felt like someone was trying to rip it off. The pain I had usually comes with rain, but I checked the weather forecast and none in sight.  What gives?

For some reason, the pain was just unbearable last night. I couldn’t sleep and tried to fight through it. After an hour of rolling around, I thought to myself, “well if it worked for my teeth, I might as well try for my hip and knee.” I rubbed a good amount of them from a roller I made and within an hour the pain went away and I had fallen asleep. To some this may not seem like a big deal but to me is huge. I am a terrible sleeper and my joint pain does not go away. I’ll take the victory!

I am looking forward to seeing what else these essential oils can help me with!
