Tendinitis Pain Relief

Tendinitis is something I think everyone has to deal with at some point in their lives. Tendinitis is an inflammation or irritation of a tendon - a thick cord that attaches bone to muscle. It can occur within any of the hundreds to tendons in the body but is most apt to occur in the tendons that we use the mots, especially if we put repeated strain on them. Common areas of strain are elbows, shoulders, hips, wrists, knee, ankle or heel. 

When tendinitis flairs up here are two different ways to deal with it. You can either create a essential oil blend or layer the essential oils on the tendon that's causing you pain. Can can apply the oils topically to the area 2 or 3 times per day until the pain is reduced. 

Recipe One: Create a blend of all the pain reducing essential oils
9 drops Basil or Marjoram 
6 drops Lemongrass
6 drops Cypress
6 drops Peppermint

Rub the oil blend into the area that's causing pain. 

Recipe Two: Instead of mixing all the oils together, layer them one at a time a few minutes apart. 

2/3 drops of Basil or Marjoram (helps with inflammation and pain)
2 drops Lemongrass (helps to mend damaged tissue)
2 drops Peppermint (helps "drive" the oil deeper into the tissue) 
2 drops Cypress (increases circulation and speeds up healing)

Essential Oil and Varicose Veins

So what are varicose and spider veins?

According to - "A vein is a blood vessel that carries blood low in oxygen content from the body to the lungs and heart. It is a normal part of the circulatory system.

Veins can bulge with pools of blood when they fail to circulate the blood properly. These visible and bulging veins, called varicose veins, are often associated with symptoms such as tired, heavy, or aching limbs. In severe cases, varicose veins can rupture, or open sores (called "ulcers") can form on the skin. Varicose veins are most common in the legs and thighs."
The severity can range from a mild situation called spider veins, the more visible and protruding varicose veins and then even more serious concerns with deep vein thrombosis. Besides the visible symptoms commonly recognizable there may also be swelling, pain and itching, discoloration and skin changes. Even before visible symptoms some will experience aching or burning sensations in the legs after prolonged periods of standing or sitting. Minor injuries or cuts may in these areas can lead to unusual bleeding.

Some simple preventive measures can help such as regular exercise, minimizing extended periods of standing or sitting without relief and resting with the legs elevated periodically. Mild massage with essential oils as described under the tabs above will hasten progress.

Here are two different essential oil blends that can help prevent and treat varicose veins. 

Blend #1

Varicose and Spider Veins

·  30 drops Cypress,
·  20 drops Lavender
·  10 drops of any of the citrus oils
·  2 tablespoons carrier oil

Blend #2

Varicose and Spider Veins

·  5 drops Peppermint
·  10 drops Cypress
·  5 drops Lemon
·  10 drops Geranium
·  2 tablespoons carrier oil

   Dilute your oils in 2 tablespoons of carrier oil. Always massage in the direction of the heart, from the foot and up the leg. If your feet and legs feel tired after heavy work, ect - massage the oil well into the legs when you get home and again before bedtime.

   Foot baths are very good at preventing varicose veins. For the following treatment you need two bowls to put your feet into - one filled with hot water and the other cold water to which you have added a few ice cubes. Add 2 drops of lavender to the cold water and 2 drops of geranium to the hot. Put both feet in the cold water for 5 minutes(brrrr!); then put them in the hot water for five minutes. The cold constricts the blood vessels and the hot dilates, sending the blood back around the body. This treatment is also good for tired swollen legs.

   If you stand all day make the effort at least three times a week to have a half-hour foot bath, followed by a leg massage. Use 2 drops of geranium in a bowl of warm water for the foot bath and then one of the massage oil blends from above.
