Since essential oils for arthritis pain and carpal tunnel are directly absorbed into the bloodstream, the topical application of essential oils is very effective for arthritis and carpal tunnel pain. Many essential oils are used to help with pain.*
Some essential oils contain COX-2 chemical inhibitors—a non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drug. This chemical targets the COX-2, an enzyme responsible for inflammation and pain. Aspirin and ibuprofen are just a few examples of COX-2 inhibitors.
Probably the best types of oils that contain COX-2 inhibitors are the following essential oils for pain: Thyme, Myrrh, Fennel, Cinnamon, Clove, Eucalyptus and Bergamot. These oils dilute blood vessels, which increase circulation and assist the body to heal. To use, apply directly to the spot and feel immediate healing.*
Inflammation and pain can also be eased with nitric oxide (NO) inhibitors. The increase of nitric acid, that typically accompanies inflammation, can be combatted with the following essential oils for arthritis: Peppermint, Lemongrass, Tea Tree, Nutmeg, Dill, Lime, Frankincense, Tangerine, Lavender, Patchouli, Eucalyptus, Juniper, and Clove Bud.*
In addition, essential oils for arthritis pain and carpal tunnel to also consider are:
Holy Basil has many anti-inflammatory and antiseptic benefits, similar to ibuprofen and aspirin.*
Lavender promotes circulation and the healthy flow of oxygen in joints.*
