Lifestyle tips:

Quit smoking: It affects your blood circulation; your blood vessels narrow and less oxygenated blood can flow through.

Warm bath: This can help alleviate symptoms. Warm water increases blood circulation.

Exercise: This can help combat pain and improve overall health. Reduces blood sugar which slows down nerve damage. Increases blood flow and reduces stress.

Essential Oils

We would suggest the following:

  • Lavender Essential Oil
  • Eucalyptus Essential Oil
  • Tea Tree Essential Oil

Massage – Buy a base oil: coconut, sweet almond, grape seed for example. If you have 20ml of base oil, add half the amount of Essential Oil drops. In this case, you will add 4 drops of Lavender, 3 drops of Tea Tree and 3 drops of Tea Tree. Apply the blend over the affected area, as required. Especially effective after a bath.

Bath – Your skin is the most absorbent part of the body. The heat of the bath assists in the absorption. There are 2 ways to do this:

  1. Diffusing 5 drops (maximum) of Essential Oils into a teaspoon of milk. Or a cup, if you would like more of a Cleopatra style bath. Use 2 drops of Lavender, 2 drops of Eucalyptus and 1 drop of Tea Tree. Add Epsom salts.
  2. Or simply add 5ml of your massage blend.

Close all windows. Soak for 15-20 minutes minimum. Avoid splashing in the eyes.

** A patch test is required for application – 1 drop of aromatherapy oil to 4 drops of base oil. Apply a coin size amount to a patch of skin on the inner arm **

If sensitivity occurs, apply more base oil to soothe the area. Possibly avoid use for a further 10 days. If you wish to continue, dilute to ¼ of the original amount and test on a small area of skin. If there is no further reaction, continue with that dosage.

** Tea Tree – Avoid up to the age of 5. Can irritate the skin and be very drying on its own **

** Lavender is the safest of oils, if on a rare occasion you react, apply more base oil to the skin to soothe it and dilute the massage blend with more base oil **

** Eucalyptus – Avoid during pregnancy/lactation, epilepsy, on homoeopathic remedies. Avoid use for children under 1 and with caution up to the age of 8 **
