This potent blend penetrates deeply and effectively melts away muscular aches, pains and the stress that settles in the neck, shoulders, and lower back. Our therapeutic mixture of Eucalyptus, Cajeput, Juniper, Wintergreen and Clove is perfect for massage or a hot bath.
So, what actually causes the soreness?
A bout of exercise causes inflammation, which leads to an increase in the production of immune cells (comprised mostly of macrophages and neutrophils). Levels of these immune cells reach a peak 24-48 hours after exercise. These cells, in turn, produce bradykinins and prostaglandins, which make the pain receptors in your body more sensitive.
The result? Whenever you move, these pain receptors are stimulated. Because they're far more sensitive to pain than normal, you end up feeling sore and in need of a little tender loving care.
How can Essential oils help?
Essential oils blended correctly and used in massage have a wonderful warming effect on the muscles. We have chosen Eucalyptus as it is excellent pain relief for rheumatic and muscular pain, especially tired and over worked muscles. It has a stimulating effect on the nerves, and it has a warming effect on muscles. Juniper has been chosen because of its pain relieving properties to help soothe tired aching joints and Wintergreen to relax tired muscles. 4 oz.
