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.
Science Behind the formula:
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 .
Eucalyptus has healing powers long recognized by native peoples, including the aboriginal people of Australia. The essential oil contains anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, and antiseptic properties, which provide significant relief from muscle and joint pain. It has cooling and refreshing effects, which may reduce stress and alleviate mental exhaustion. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3703330/
Use circular motions to apply eucalyptus oil to affected areas and on reflex points to relieve muscle and joint discomfort.
Why Should you exfoliate?
Plain and simple exfoliation is an important process in maintaining clean and healthy skin; it removes dead skin cells on the surface of your skin (the epidermis) keeping your skin cleaner, smoother and brighter.
Why do I need to moisturize my skin?
The skin needs moisture to repair and renew itself. While the skin produces it own oil through the sebaceous glands, sometimes extra moisture is needed. As we get older our skin does not produce enough oil and becomes very dry, add in menopause and all of a sudden the wrinkles, lines and visible signs are aging are prevalent. The Skin needs to be hydrated either internally or topically to be soft, supple and smooth.
