So, provided you are educated about the intended uses of essential oils and any health and safety precautions associated with them, consider some of these suggestions as a means to help alleviate your symptoms.
Shaman Lavender Oil – Produced from the fragrant herb of the same name, this aromatic oil has anti-inflammatory and soothing properties that help calm and relieve stress. Consider using a diluted formula applied to the skin for mild pain relief, or use in aromatherapy to help you rest, relax, and get to sleep.
Shaman Juniper Red Organic Oil – Made from the cedar-like, pungent berries of the Juniper tree, Juniper oil not only instills a “purifying” feeling in its users, its muscle-relaxing and nerve-calming properties may help ease tenderness when applied topically.
Shaman Juniper Black Organic Oil – This variation on the Juniper Red offers many of the same properties, with a slightly different aroma. Perfect for aromatherapy use.
Shaman Sage Organic Oil – Among the most widely used herbs in the world, sage has been used in wellness practices since the early days of human civilization. In helping reduce inflammation, ease aches, and improving mood, it may be a welcome help in relieving minor Fibromyalgia symptoms.
Shaman Sage Hydrosol Organic – Utilizing the organic remains of the steam distillation process, hydrosols are an excellent complement to essential oils because they are mild enough to be used directly on the skin. That makes sage hydrosol a good option for anyone who prefers not to use a full-strength essential oil.
Shaman Rosemary Organic Oil – Fibromyalgia has a terrible tendency to put some sufferers into a “fog,” where memory or thinking is hazy and clouded. Going as far back as the Egyptians and Romans, people have used rosemary oil to help clarify their mental state and clear their mind. That makes it an excellent choice to help relieve these symptoms.
Fibromyalgia is a difficult chronic ailment to manage, but if you are looking for natural ways to alleviate your symptoms, essential oils may be worth exploring. Hopefully these suggestions will get you on a path towards relief.
