I’m sure you’re aware of the most common ways to manage the symptoms that come with diabetic nerve pain…
…like keeping a low blood sugar or soaking your feet in a warm bath.
Well, today, I wanted to tell you about a remedy that’s thousands of years old, but one that’s
probably brand new to you.
And not only will it help you get your hands and feet BACK to feeling soothed and relaxed —
it’s going to smell amazing, too.
I’m talking about essential oils.
Around since the days of ancient Egypt, essential oils are now used in everything from food flavorings to perfumes to pain relief.
But, not all essential oils work for those suffering from neuropathy.
So, I put together this list to show you exactly which ones are best for diabetic nerve pain.
Here’s my “Essential Guide to Essential Oils”:
Peppermint essential oil is extremely versatile. Not only is it known to relax muscles and control muscle spasms, but it’s also an incredible nerve pain reliever.
When London researchers got a chance to study it, they found that rubbing peppermint oil into a pain point provided relief that lasted an astounding 4-6 hours. (1)
You might think of lavender as just another shade of purple, but its plant form is growing in popularity as a tremendous sleep aid and pain reliever.
In 2015, Brazilian researchers were able to see that the extract from the lavender plant can be used to help treat pain and the inflammation that comes with it. (2)
Applying roman chamomile to your skin is another great way to calm your painful muscles and nerves.
In a 2014 study, researchers at the University of Mississippi confirmed that Roman chamomile is indeed beneficial to those suffering from the discomfort that comes from inflammation. (3)
So, go ahead and give these a try.
Essential oils can be a great compliment to a program that already includes Nerveology’s expertly crafted formulas.
