Essential Oils for Muscle Aches and Pains

essentialoilsformuscles

Muscle aches can really slow down your workout routine.  Do essential oils help with muscle aches? The answer is Yes!  Strained muscles can cause pain and in some cases the inability to move without trembling as the muscles struggle to contract.  Normal activities are now painful.  Rest is the best remedy, followed by hot bath and massage.  If pain continues to be a problem you may have an injury (check with your doctor).  You may also ice the area to reduce swelling and pain which is caused by inflammation.

Add these essential oils to a hot bath to help with inflammation and swelling.
