For pain: essential oil therapy (lavender or thieves)

For stress: (not often an issue) A quiet, cozy nook, a light read, and a cup of peppermint tea.

Here4 ---

Essential oils are all natural.

They are the oils from medicinal plants.

I have used them for years. My great-grandmother (1882-1959) taught me the benefits and such.

Thieves Oli is a combination of of 5 oils: clove, Cinnamon, rosemary, lemon and eucalyptus.

You can use a drop topically near the site of pain (many people use it on the bottoms of the feet) - it can be added as a drop to hot tea, for example, as an elixir. Before you ingest any plant or oil of the plant check with your physician to make sure you will not have an issue with any of the oils. I have a multitude of allergies of all kinds but the oils do not bother me.

For sleep: a combination of orange, tangerine, lavender, chamomile, ylang ylang, and sandalwood oils can be added as drops to water to make a room spray.

Chamomile tea at bedtime is an excellent stress reducer and sleep aide.

On the market you may want to try Lemon Zinger tea, sold commercially at larger groceries (yes, even WalMart).

There is a world of essential oils and remedies which have been found medically sound.

Google, visit a local essential oils store, buy a book on essential oils, or read some old Native American books on medicinal remedies.

Happy health.

@Here4...

en re the oils... I use lavender more than any other Oil or plant derivitive.

Lavender is so beneficial in so many areas: headache, stress, relaxation, as a balm, sachet in drawers and in linens and on pillow, homemade soaps and lotions, tea, as an herb seasoning, floral (fresh and dry).

If I were to suggest only one natural oil/plant it would be lavender.

If you try any of the suggestions I hope you will post and advise me whether you enjoyed them or not.

Happy health.


(ps: when I top my roses in the late spring and summer I let my dog eat the snipped branchers. Full of vitamin K.)

I have been diagnosed with stress-management, anxiety disorder, and a few other things. I have a good trio of doctors and some good pills. They work.

I use aspirin , ibuprofen , is over the counter stuff , Tramadol from the pain doctor , hot showers , I never use stuff like ben gay , deep heat , stuff like that , my doctor told me years ago never use hot rub creams , just make it worse , if it swells use ice , some times hot packs but the shower works better. I try to walk around the house or front yard for pain and stress . Hi , you need to eat some thing if you take aspirin or Ibuprofen, I also have no salt in the house ,I try not to eat any salt.
