ohhhhh so many to choose

Black pepper, marjoram sweet & Lavender. Going easy on the black pepper and watching out for any contraindications.

This is a lovely one that has worked really well for me.

I too love Black Pepper and Sweet Marjarom, but have also found the warming elements of Frankinsence and Ginger to be useful.

I was quite surprised to see juniper or juniperberry (whchever way you prefer) has not come up for musculer aches and pains, as this would probably be in my top 3 oils for this condition, goes to show that the personal touch is the best really doesn't it, as i no of some classes that just drill specific oils for specific conditions onto the students, which obviously doesnt give the best treatment

Hi Candie,
I personally like Rosemary, Pine and Basil. Not so keen on the Black Pepper, as have found with some people it seems to make them feel agitated. Think maybe it's a bit too stimulating if the recepient is a bit on the anxious side anyway.

Yes, I thought this too, but I have seen it in an oil catalogue recently, but always understood it to be a no-no with massage.

Most of the oils I'd use have been mentioned - however I'd probably also use Cypress, Birch, Grapefruit and use some Meadowsweet in the carrier oil for its analgesic properties.

Eucalyptus, black pepper and lemongrass is my personal favourite. Its especially good for post-sports. My favourite evening blend would be may chang, lavender and vetiver.

RE: Top blends for muscular pain/stiffness

Hi Everyone

As a continuation of this, I have a client coming to see me who has Ankylosing Spondylitis - has anyone ever treated this with aromatherapy? Just wondered what oils would be good to use (and avoid). I often use black pepper with muscular aches and pains, but wonder whether I should use it with this condition - it is a warming oil and this condition is an inflammation, so think should probably avoid.

Your advice please!

Love n light

Hi White Light

I've never treated this condition myself, but Turmeric or German Chamomile might be suitable oils for you to use - having excellent anti-inflammatory properties with an affinity with the skeleton (both being indicated for OA and RA). These two, blended with Lavender would be good (in my opinion!). Lavender is a such a lovely, cooling analgesic but I think there is a tendency to overlook it - perceive it as an "easy and predictable" choice. Okay......pro-lavender rant over!!

HTH!

love

Katy

RE: Top blends for muscular pain/stiffness

Hi everyone,

I am new here, but have worked with Kneipp products which have been around since the late 1800s.

The top two for muscle pain/stiffness have to be Arnica and Juniper.

Arnica is soothing and cooling and is a natural anti-inflammatory. It is really excellent if there is any bruising. I use this on blisters or black and blue marks personally and they clear up so much faster with arnica.

I have clients who swear by the Juniper essential oils especially after strenuous exercise. The Kneipp Juniper bath oil is 34% essential oil which I believe is one of the highest concentrations out there.

Kneipp Healthy!

I have heard that Lavender eo, neat on a contracted muscle helps, then massaged over the muscle. Im not sure how or if it works. If any body knows please tell. Its worth a try perhaps

Badger's my pick

I absolutely love Badger Massage Oils.

I love that they use organic oils and the blends they put together are just very warming and healing. I can feel the medicine in them as soon as they hit my skin.

I love the sore muscle blend for pain and also the healing birch.

Just wonderful oils.

Love peppermint

Yeah, I love peppermint oil too, for pain. Creams that have MSM in them are also very good.

I'm ok with pure lavender in a mixture (not a fan of it by itself though) but for some reason, most products use lavendula or a less pure form.

Hi!
I'm fairly new to all this, but for sore, stiff muscles or sprains I've been using a blend called "Panaway" that contains Peppermint, Wintergreen, Clove and Helichrysum. My family swears by it; we take it to Taekwon-do with us! I think sufferers of epilepsy have to be careful of/avoid wintergreen, so it might pay to check that out. Wintergreen gives off that fantastic "deep heat" smell you often notice in sports rubs!
Cheers!

I have used Plai (Zingiber cassumnar) with good effect too. Plai is a muscle relaxant and it is good for joint problems too. It is indicated for aches and pains, inflammations, sprains and strains and so on...

Dont forget carrot oil!! also what is fab for your clients is 'olbas oil'!!! it contains so many of the good essential oils, and it does not need blending, apart from a drop of oil to smoothe it into the skin. I tell my clients to use this, if they suffer from aches and pains. Its great for keen runners, as I will advise them to take it when they go running, as long as they decant it into a small plastic bottle first!! it means they dont have to have it blended by a proff!!
