The Best Essential Oils for Joint Pain, Inflammation & Pain in Joints & Areas That Are Overused (Bursitis)

Whether you sit at a computer and type all day, text on your cell phone, participate in sports or paint houses during work, these repetitive motions can easily make your joint capsules  quite painful, inflamed, and hinder everything you do. The pain and problems may be dull and not so intense yet most likely, they will lead to chronic serious health problems. 

Pain that happens in the joints such as knee pain, elbow problems and more aren't as easily reduced and health when compared to other types of problems such as muscle pain. That's because there is very little circulation and fluid in areas such as the knees and other joints. 

The best way to start your healing process when it comes to this type of problem, otherwise known as bursitis is to seek a medical professional to find out what is causing the pain and discomfort. Get the facts and once bursitis is diagnosed and confirmed, then you will know which all natural remedies and essential oils should be used to get to the root of the problem. 

What exactly is bursitis? There is a fluid-filled capsule, or a sac, that surrounds every single joint in your body. When this bursa is overused (and/or with illness, aging, genetics and many other factors), and/or becomes inflamed, loses the supportive fluid and circulation then the muscles and tendons are able to move around and over the bones without causing pain. What you now have is bone upon bone and this is when bursa happens. Areas such as your knees, elbows, shoulders, hips and other joints can be highly affected by bursitis.  

Repetitive motion and overuse can cause the bursa, or sac, surround the joints to be damaged and fluid to diminish. Without fluid, there is no lubrication and inflammation happens which is known as bursitis. The area of bursitis becomes inflamed, feels hot, swollen and is very painful. It seems like a vicious cycle because this often happens in joints that we just all the time; the repetitive motion causes the problem.

However, there are all natural ways to treat bursitis, joint pain, and related joint issues such as arthritis. Here are some top ways to treat bursitis, joint pain, joint inflammation and swelling, and overuse repetitive arthritis issues:

Ingest good fats and oils including fish oil, coconut oil, flaxseed oil and pumpkin seed oil. They contain the healthy Omega 3 6 9 fats that help to lubricate your joints, reduce swelling along with being very beneficial for your skin, hair, organs, blood pressure, cholesterol level, keeping the weight down, maintaining a healthy weight and more. 

Alternate ice and heat. Apply ice for twenty minute and then heat for twenty minutes. While you're doing this, you're also reducing and/or not doing the activity that causes the overuse repetitive motions. 

Use the following essential oils to help reduce swelling and inflammation, increase fluid and circulation, warm the joints and add much needed nutrients and antioxidants not only to the areas affected by bursitis but the entire body's systems will benefit as well:

Helichrysum, Chamomile, Cinnamon, Peppermint, Spearmint and Eucalyptus and Arnica (don't ingest arnica and eucalyptus) have been used for centuries because of their anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties.

Lavender helps to calm irritated and inflamed body areas and so do the essential oils of Rosemary, Basil, Clove, Oregano and Geranium. You can apply directly on to the joints that are painful, add a little amount of ingestible, or therapeutic, essential oils to your foods and beverages.
