Less pain using nutrition and essential oils

Are you experiencing aches and pains from overuse,
osteoporosis or arthritis?  These tips below may be helpful for you.  They helped my mom!

My main reason to get the oils was for my mom.  She is 85 and doing fairly well, but is slowed down by some aches and pains each day.   She has mild osteoporosis and arthritis.  Together we lowered her blood pressure and increased her circulation by changing her diet.  Over the course of a year she stopped eating processed foods and drinks, added more steamed veggies, whole grains, hormone free meats and decreased her sugar.  She is amazed how she no longer needs Ensure, cookies and candy each day and best of all no blood pressure medication! 
She still suffers from aches and pains in her joints and body. One reason was not enough vitamin D.  So she upped her dosage and felt better.  She was getting leg cramps at night so she started measuring her water. She has a 1 liter bottle that she refills each morning and afternoon.  She knows if she drinks the 2 liters (she's tiny, only 5ft 110 lbs) that she will not get leg cramps.    She then started drinking apple cider vinegar each day.  The apple cider vinegar reduces inflammation in the body and improves circulation.  This also helped, but she was still suffering from "old age aches" and would take Tylenol.  This is when Lisa introduced me to essential oils. 
We got my mom the Aroma touch blend for her joints and the Deep blue blend for muscle aches.  At first the oils were too hot for her skin.  Even though these blends have coconut oil in them, it was not enough for her.  So she diluted them down with coconut oil or almond oil.  After one application she noticed a difference!   She has continued with the oils for a couple months now and no longer has to dilute them with other oils.  She now associates the smell of the oils with relaxation which is also very powerful.

Wintergreen is found in the Deep Blue blend. (Wintergreen, camphor, peppermint, blue tansy, blue chamomile, helichrysum and osmanthus.)   Even Wintergreen oil alone works well on aches and pains by increasing the blood flow to the area and providing a cool sensation on the skin.  
Aroma touch uses the power of Peppermint along with Cypress, Marjoram, Grapefruit, Basil and Lavender.
