As many of us already know, essential oils have been used for centuries to heal just about every kind of illness, physical or mental well being. You name it. But what’s so magical about it?
Like everything you encounter with healing or soothing a pain or injury, you must look at the core. When your lower back hurts what is usually the corporate? inflammation and a muscle imbalance. And like the core of these two, essential oils can replicate.
Harnessing the power of the plant can equip us with the healing powers they bring. More on that in our later readings.
It simply amazes me how many of us have been aware of essential oils, but we lack the understanding of how it can truly bring a more well-balanced and healthy life. It’s no coinsidience that these oils can end and prevent the use of harmful drugs.
With all the over the counter(OTC) prescription drugs, and Opioids at our disposal, it’s becoming increasingly worrying how many people are consuming them, That’s the first factor. Then there is this…
They are dangerous, and are proving to cause:
Whether we like it or not, we are living in a world of quick fixes and temporary solutions. When something hurts or doesn’t feel right, we either:
Over the counter solutions like NSAID’s and Acetaminophen just don’t cut it anymore. Unfortunately, they are synthetic and chemically created to have side effects at the expense of just masking your pain.
…Sounds hazardous to me, and quite like a double jeopardy. And don’t get me going on the addictions they bring.

I’ll close with a conclusion, and you’ll be well on your way to a healthier you.
Wouldn’t we all be happy if we can jut be immune to feeling muscle pain? It would be living like a superstar athlete for years to come. As dreaming as that sounds, it’s not so realistic.
Unfortunately, At one point in our lives, we’re more likely to get muscle pain than we are in preventing it. Much of the problem at fault are our joints, as we either get older or experience a large injury, the cartilage wears and tears away, which places a constraint on your muscles.
But whichever problem it is you have, there is a way to make you better. It’s my honor to get you ready my friend.
So the big question…
How can you avoid that nagging muscle pain that’s radiating to your lower back?
The best solution is to avoid overexertion. If you’re getting intense muscle soreness after a workout, and not the next day like you’re suppose to, that’s a sign you’re working yourself too hard. In other words, you might be hurting your body, and not in that “oooh, ahhh, I feel the burn” type of way.
A prevention action you can take to make sure that muscle pain doesn’t re-appear is by adding a massage oil before you head into your activities.
*Recipes beyond this point*
Now that you know how to prevent muscle pain, let’s dive into a holistic approach.
Here at Remove Back Pain, we believe that the most powerful medicine for you is natural and holistic. We combine the astonishing effects of plants with the daily routine of strengthening and flexibility.
Whether you’ve stretched, or ran a marathon(hopefully not with a spinal problem), aches and pains just happen. Its part of how our biological body works.
When this happens, inflammation doesn’t need an invitation to let itself in. That’s when its time to react fast to find ways to reduce the inflammation. Stretching before and after an activity is the most beneficial thing you can do for your:
After a workout is when all the lactic acid build up around your muscles, causing your muscles to feel sore and hurt. As soon as you stretch your hips and hamstrings that lactic acid will decrease completely, and will allow blood to flow easily, increasing circulation, and letting the lactic acid run out.
The other important thing to note is that when you don’t stretch your hamstrings and hips after exercising, your muscles will tighten up, causing the pain to radiate up to your lower back and into your spine.
Now that we spent some time thinking about strengthening and flexibility to our health and well-being, let’s take the next chunk of the article to talk about the positive effects of essential oils.
When it comes to essential oils, you’re not limited. There’s many that can heal your mind and body at the same time, while others that are most potent will deal with the chronic pain you’ve been dealing with. I have my top 11 essential oils to show for it.

You’ve made it this far, but you still don’t know the one most important thing! How to use essential oils? Do you digest, use creams, or by oil for? I have the answer for you.
The best way to use essential oils is as massage oils. The reason so is that they are more potent and pure. The more pure, the more concentrated the oil will be. Have you thought about mixing them together?
Essential oils for pain relief should be diluted with carrier oils.
Carrier oils include:
I’ll tell you this right now, all are a equally a great choice, but I personally like coconut oil. I’ll go out of my way to purchase it because when its combined, and said and done, the smell is going to be phenomenal.
Now you’re ready to apply the oil to your skin. Before your directly apply onto your skin, do a skin patch test to see if it effects your skin. What I do is rub my mix of diluted oil of choice(peppermint oil with coconut oil, and sweet almond) on my forearm.
If after a second I don’t feel any irritation or discomfort within a 24-hour time frame, it’s a sign that you’re infused oil is safe and ready for use.
As of lately(2017-2019)Here’s one essential oil I’ve been using as of lately:
All it took me were a couple of drops of Eucalyptus before sleep and it made the most significant difference moving forward in my life.
I’ve been using Eucalyptus essential oil for a number of reasons as of lately, and they are:
Now Eucalyptus is usually my go to solution for muscle and joint pain.
You only need to use a few drops of your essential oil of choice. Each and every oil is different, and so your dosage varies. But the standard practice is to add 4 to 10 drops of essential oil to every carrier oil. There’s something awesome to this approach…
You can use mix different oils together as long as you keep to these proportions. So have it, be free and show your creative side.
Here’s a video of me talking about essential oils and how you should use them:
On a side note: Use only the purest grades of carrier oils because they have therapeutic properties of their own, and activate the reaction(chemically) of the essential oils.
On Christmas(December 25th 2018), I participated in a game of white elephant. And what was funny was that I choose a gift with Eucalyptus + spearmint body wash and foam bath, and I thought to myself…
Hmm, I did need more essential oils as I was running low. Here’s what I received in that bag:
This item came from Bath and Body Works, and it smells just as great as it feels. Whether I’m sitting in the tub after a long day of work, or exercising, all I need is a couple drops and there’s an immediate affect to your respiration and feel to your muscles and joints.
Here’s a video that demonstrates how I go about using the bath and body works bottle
In the same Christmas bag, I also received an Ultra Shea Body Cream from Bath and Body Works.
And the significance of this is that it comes with Cocoa Butter and Coconut Oil which are going to be great carrier oils for:
The awesome thing is that I don’t need the pure carrier oil itself, I can use this cream since it comes with water(aqua), and mix it in a little bit of water to disperse the compounds to extract, and my essential oils-preferably the pure essential oils will be ready to mix with. And I’ll show you how to mix your essential oils here in a bit.
Along with this, here are more essential oils that I’ve used in the past:
These are from Young Living. They come in a 0.17 fl oz.(5ml) bottle, and they are 100% Pure Essential Oils. As far as their smells go, very bright and flavorful.
The question I keep getting asked about Essential Oils are:
“Which are the best”
And most people are quick to blurt out either doTerra or Young Living. These are the two biggest names in the industry at the moment no doubt, but it’s also important to note that everyone has a different preference.
What I like will be different what you will like, and so I like to break it down like this:
Believe it or not, I didn’t start in either one of them! As I showed you the picture above, and here it is again:
I went into AmbiEsents head first. After that, I tried other less priced brands, but the one unique quality that most Essential Oils have are that they are 100% pure. Young Living Essential Oils has been around for 20+ years now, establishing themselves as the bigger authority in the marketplace. But…
doTerra on the other hand is gaining traction fast.
Check out this video in where I give a comprehensive review:
Let’s break down each brands pros and cons:
Young Living pro’s
My Most Recent favorite way to use essential oil has to be in a cream format. It’s not very common that to get the most out of essential oils, it should come in a cream form right?
But I’ve discovered a new and better way to utilize that option with a product known as Penetrex.
Penetrex is an intensive concentrate for relief and recovery, and it can be very useful for you if you have more chronic muscle and joint pain. What it specializes so well in is that it has the #1 inflammation formulation, and that’s to credit its ingredients of:
As you can see, there are plenty of essential oils, and they’re mixed with Herbs, which gives it the edge over any other cream or essential oils alone can do.
After using Penetrex for over a year and a half, I’ve grown very attached to it for exercising to daily activities in and around the house. Here’s a video of me just getting home after a jog outside:

1. Muscle relief massage oil.
It’s great that you have all the details on how to use an essential oil, but there has to be more. How do you to take the best approach for your symptoms? We’ll take a close look at that next. So get your recipe book ready, this is about to get cooking.
Can you rest easy with a slipped disc? I know I can’t. The pain that comes with a restless lower back can now be controlled. And it does so with:
…And many more!
Here I’m going to reveal to you a massage blend that’s not only worked well for me, but for my friends and relatives.
In the meantime, before you check in with your doctor, there’s a formula to use ease your discomfort, and relieve your spine.
For the first three days after you slipped or ruptured your disc, you should be icing for 24-72 hours throughout your day. After three days you can apply massage oil to your area of concern. Be sure to apply it gently! Since it’s your disc we’re talking about here
You’ll want to apply it throughout the day, 3x a day works just fine.
TIP: The very first time I used this blend, I didn’t feel the best comfort right away, and so I had to use a hot and cold compressor with a cloth and hot and cold water, alternating with the two.
Thereafter, It alleviated discomfort and I added 2-3 drops of each basil and peppermint essential oil on the compressor. Follow it up with gently massaging your area.
What if you’re dealing with acute lower back pain muscle strain? You can follow the same recommendation from a slipped disc above.
NOTE: Anytime you have an acute muscle sprain or strain, the first thing to do is use ice therapy for the first 2-3 days. An ice bag is okay, but it doesn’t have the best effects as a cold gel pack.
Essentially, after using an ice bag for almost 1 year straight with acute, sub-acute and chronic lower back pain, I had to switch over, as it was not enough.
For Lumbago, I’ve made a blend that is best applied with a massage and then mixed into a bath.
In the bath:
I believe we all know how irritating sciatic nerve pain is. It causes way too much discomfort. I’ve been feeling sciatic pain for the past 2 months, constantly on and off. My legs haven’t trembled so much as they have lately. Luckily, I can use the following blend for relief.
TIP: If you’re sciatic pain is severe, do not massage for a long time. It should be limited. Usually, sever pain brings in inflammation, and with inflammation comes a cold compressor, which is recommended.
Ways to use your sciatica massage pain
For the bath:
Have you come to the realization how great essential oils can benefit and help you? There are many additives, and even bonuses to using oils. Not only can you use them by themselves, or mix them, but they make a great use for prevention.

The top 11 essential oils are sure to keep you on your feet, and spending less time hunching over, and resting.
