S.O.S. Nerve Pain

Pain is a complicated process that involves an intricate interplay between a number of important chemicals found naturally in the brain and the spinal cord. In general, these chemicals, called neurotransmitters, transmit nerve impulses from one cell to another.

Nerve pain is one of the hardest types of pain to treat; it is also the most painful! It can be sharp, stinging, severely itching, searing or burning. Essential oils have been used quite successfully in treating this type of pain, initially it relieves the pain, and people who use them appear to heal more quickly than others.

Lavinia Botanica S.O.S. Nerve Pain rub will help neuralgia, sciatica, fibromyalgia, painful shingles or phantom pain. People with serious nerve-related problems, such as multiple sclerosis and chronic fatigue syndrome, get noticeable pain relief from the rub.

Below are a few essential oils in the combination Lavinia Botanica for S.O.S. Nerve Pain Relief Rub and why I have included in the formula.

Lavender is gentle and soothing and calming. Lavender oil has many uses; it is a powerful antiseptic containing more than 200 compounds that are active against fungi, viruses and other microbes. Many of the purported medicinal uses for lavender have, upon modern scientific testing, proven to be legitimate. Lavender oil was used extensively on the battlefield during both World Wars when medical supplies became scarce to prevent infection and as a pain reliever.

Peppermint has anti-inflammatory properties. These properties can help soothe mucus membranes, peppermint oil acts as gives quick relief from nerve pain. Has a strong, fresh, clean, minty aroma. This essential oil enhances the therapeutic effects of other essential oil.

Rosemary has the ability to relieve pain and has been used extensive for headaches, muscle pains, sore muscles and rheumatism. Rosemary has an analgesic (pain relieving) effect.

Chamomile is anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and anti-spasmodic effects.  It may be used to reduce swelling & puffiness of the nerve and has a sedative effect on the nervous system.  Marjoram has many of the same properties as chamomile.  It is also a powerful stimulant and should not be used during pregnancy. Essential oils of lavender, chamomile, and marjoram are excellent at easing the pain of a pinched nerve or sciatica.

Cypress   comes from the leaves (needles) and cones of the Mediterranean Cypress trees of Europe. It is used for stimulating blood circulation and is a powerful astringent. It is also an anti-spasmodic and often used to relieve the cramps, sprains and strains of athletic injuries as well as the pain of rheumatoid arthritis.

Eucalyptus is an effective analgesic affect. It has similar properties to juniper, being analgesic and anti-inflammatory when used topically. It is recommended for the treatment of muscular aches and pains, strains and/or sprains, and nerve pain. It also works well with other essential oils.

Geranium Essential Oil is soothing, antiseptic, antidepressant.  It is a cooling oil and calms the mind, relax the body and ease frustration and irritability when unwell.

The lemon reduces tension and instils courage and optimism. Flower and citrus oils blend well with the other sedative oils and add their own dimensions to the therapeutic experience

Teatree is one product that can help diabetic nerve pain. It decreases the pain and shortens the length and severity of the outbreak of shingles.

Black Pepper is a natural pain killer. It is a circulatory stimulant and may be helpful with arthritis, neuralgia, poor circulation, general stiffness, sprains, and sciatica.
