Essential Oils for Muscle Tension Relief

Post by Jin » Wed Jun 07, 2017 7:45 am

Hello, I am now very interested in learning more about aromatherapy. One of my colleagues said that a certain essential oil blend he uses allows him to feel the muscles quickly relaxing and softening compared to when he doesn't use it.

Which essential oils are good for muscle tension relief? I would like to formulate a blend that brings the muscles to a gel state as quickly as possible, if possible with essential oils.

Thanks in advance!

Lemongrass, frankincense, and marjoram are my go to. I use doTERRA essential oils for 5 years now.

I highly suggest looking into the books by Kurt Schnaubelt as supplements to your learning.

I'd also suggest that you definitely ask your colleague what he is using, and see if it is a fit for your needs once you learn more about Aromatherapy. Likely he'll share his recipe.
