Real pure essential oils are not cheap. So don’t be fooled by cheap oils. You want them pure.
Essential oils have so many uses, including for serious health problems. This ointment uses the three powerful essentials oils, frankincense, ginger and myrrh, alongside the solid carrier oil, coconut oil.
It’s believed that frankincense oil transmits messages to the limbic system of the brain, which is known to influence the nervous system. It can help improve circulation and lower symptoms of joint pain or muscle pain related to conditions like arthritis, digestive disorders and even asthma.
Ginger essential oil is also made up of about 90 percent sesquiterpenes, which are defensive agents that have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
The bioactive ingredients in ginger essential oil, especially gingerol, have been thoroughly evaluated clinically, and the research suggests that ginger should be used on a regular basis.
A component of ginger essential oil, called Zingibain, is responsible for the oil’s anti-inflammatory properties. This important component provides pain relief and helps ease muscle aches, arthritis discomfort, migraines and also works as a headache remedy.
Lastly, myrrh essential oil also contains sesquiterpenes as well as another primary active compounds called terpenoids, both of which have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
Mix all four ingredients into a bowl until well blended. Place this DIY arthritis ointment into a glass jar with a lid for continued use.
Simply massage the ointment in the areas where you feel pain. I use twice daily.
You can also take it to your masseuse and ask him or her to use it while performing a mild massage.
