Essential oils may seem like a new age phenomenon, but if you look at the variety of oils there are elements in them actually recommended by physicians. And you don’t need to worry as much about recalls.
Take Young Living Essential Oils for instance. Helichrysum or copaiba that are amazing at reducing inflammation. Since everyone knows about nicotine patches, and testosterone patches, and others, absorption of components through the skin into the blood stream is a powerful transfer mechanism. Oils that reduce pain are extremely effective because of this. Doctors have prescribed peppermint for indigestion for years and have shown beyond a doubt that it works. Why not try an oil? I think it should be thought of as an option particularly when your over the counter preferences aren’t working for your health complaint.
