Science Behind the Formula:
Peppermint essential oil is a very
effective natural painkiller and muscle relaxant. It is especially
helpful in soothing an aching back, sore muscles, and melting away a
tension headache. A study showed that peppermint oil, rosemary, lavender, and eucalyptus applied topically has pain relief benefits associated with Post Operative Pain, Hemiplegic Shoulder Pain, Fibromyalgia, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, and other pain.
3.1.9. Postoperative Pain
Pain is common after almost any surgical procedure. Although analgesic medications are effective in reducing pain and nausea, uncomfortable side effects can prolong the healing process and increase hospitalization time . In a randomized control study to examine pain management after total knee replacement surgery, patients treated with eucalyptus aromatherapy experienced significantly lower pain and blood pressure than the control group . A study that examined lavender aromatherapy in patients recovering from breast biopsy surgery found that the aromatherapy group reported a significantly higher satisfaction with pain management than the control group, even though rates of pain, narcotic use, and discharge time were the same .
3.1.10. Hemiplegic Shoulder Pain
As many as 60% of patients who experience complete paralysis of half the body after stroke, a condition known as hemiplegia, complain of shoulder pain. Hemiplegic shoulder pain (HSP) is usually caused by muscle weakness, subluxation, and decreased motor strength. HSP is commonly treated with pharmacological interventions, but the side effects are often unpleasant and dangerous. Nonpharmacological treatments, such as exercise, massage, and biofeedback can reduce pain but are not always effective. A 2007 pilot study examined the benefits of lavender, rosemary, and peppermint oils on relieving HSP. The experimental treatment group received aromatherapy acupressure for 20 minutes twice a day to manage HSP. The pain levels of the treatment group were compared to a control group who received acupressure only without aromatherapy. Although pain was reduced in both groups, the aromatherapy group reported a 30% reduction in pain, compared to 15% reduction in pain for the control group .
There have been two studies
completed by the NIH that support this claim.
One research study conducted in 2010 resulted in a greater improvement
with the use of arnica oil on bruised skin. In another research study completed
in 2007, Arnica was demonstrated to reduce muscle soreness among marathon
Black Pepper Oil
A randomized controlled https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25192562 concluded that the use of marjoram, black pepper, lavender, and peppermint effectively reduced neck pain.
