Liquid Pain Relief: Treating Muscle Pain, Arthritis and Fibromyalgia with Topical Essential Oil Treatments, Therapeutic Baths & Rubs


Aches and Pain can be problematic, challenging, frustrating and down right debilitating. If you suffer from severe muscle aches or the pains associated with arthritis and fibromyalgia there is hope through natural resources and healing agents: Essential Oils.

The benefits of essential oils combined with healing, therapeutic mineral rich bath salts can be enough to reduce and alter the pain associated with aches and pains.

Recently, I discovered an amazing essential oil mix that can literally numb and reduce muscle pain greatly. Oddly enough, the ingredients are the same as you would eat if preparing a hearty Italian dinner: Rosemary, Ginger, Black Pepper, Marjoram and Cayenne oils. The essential oils are warming in their nature and their healing benefits reduce pain by deeply addressing nerves and muscles. Their relaxing properties will significantly reduce any pains you may feel, plus you will get a great night's sleep too.

It is important to note that these oils are very strong and skin sensitivities need to be considered when using these oils together.


Rosemary oil is one of the most popular essential oils. It has become important to us due to its various health benefits including its ability to stimulate hair growth, boost mental activity, relieve respiratory problems and reduce pain. Rosemary is an excellent brain and nerve tonic. It is often used by students during exam times as it increases concentration and helps in studying efficiently. It stimulates mental activity and is a good remedy for depression, mental fatigue and forgetfulness. Inhaling rosemary oil lifts your spirits immediately. Whenever your brain is tired, inhale rosemary oil to remove boredom and get fresh mental energy.

Cayenne contains a pungent substance known as capsaicin. This chemical relieves pain and itching by acting on sensory nerves. Capsaicin temporarily stimulates release of various neurotransmitters,from nerves, leading to their depletion. Without the transmitters, pain signals can no longer be sent.
