Better Understanding Arthritis

 The term arthritis refers to a set of around 200 rheumatic conditions, diseases that causes inflammation and pain in joints, muscles and your connective tissue. Pain is not the only symptom, stiffness and swelling in and around the joints also plague those with the disease.  Lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia all fit into the family of rheumatic illnesses. With decreased joint mobility, people with arthritis can become less active, leading to higher levels of anxiety and depression. At the end of the day, it is zero fun trying to deal with arthritic symptoms.

Essential Oils and Their Use in Complementary Treatments

While by no means can essential oils cure arthritis, they are quite effective at targeting and relieving its symptoms: pain, inflammation, and stiffness. Essential oils are beneficial in both aromatic and topical form.

In aromatic form, small oil particles are inhaled through the nose or mouth and are sent straight to the lungs. Just as oxygen is absorbed, these tiny oil particles are introduced by the lungs into the bloodstream, making their way throughout the body where their effects are needed.

Topical use targets specific areas, by applying oil directly to the irritated site, it quickly absorbs directly into the muscles and joints where it is applied and transfers into the bloodstream through your skin. Topical use is the most effective method for fast, reliable relief.
