3 Essential Oil Back Pain Recipes

Acute or chronic back problems can make everyday life a misery. Acute pain may be caused by a
pulled muscle or problems with tendons, ligaments or bone. Incorrect posture, lack of exercise
and/or obesity are factors that can take their toll on the back muscles. Aromatherapy using essential
oils can relieve back pain naturally.

Best Essential Oils For Back Pain

Chamomile essential oil

Helps to control muscle spasms and has pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties.

Lavender essential oil

Prevents muscle spasms and inflammation. It also helps to relieve tension, which may contribute to or worsen back pain.

Clary sage essential

Is a very soothing oil. It has a calming effect when one is anxious and muscles are tensed up from pain. It has anti-spasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties. Do not use clary sage if pregnant.

Yarrow essential oil

Has anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties.

Rosemary essential oil

Has analgesic and antispasmodic properties. It is also good for relieving back pain as it improves blood circulation.

Ginger essential oil

Can ease back pain and give one more mobility. Blend 1 tablespoon sweet oil, 4 drops wintergreen, 4 drops cardamom and 4 drops ginger oil to make a soothing massage oil.

Peppermint essential oil

Is good for muscle soreness.

Frankincense essential oil

Has anti-inflammatory properties and also acts as a mild sedative.

Marjoram essential oil

Is a great oil for back pain because it is warming, soothing and eases the joints and muscles. It’s also emotionally calming, stress easing and generally soothing. It reduces inflammation as well (great for arthritis).

Basil essential oil

Is an ideal oil for tight muscles. It helps relax and loosen up any muscular tension wherever applied. Basil is also a great oil for the nerves / mental fatigue. In cases of neuritis it’s a highly recommended oil to rub into the spine, lower back and up into the neck area. 

Eucalyptus essential oil

Is a warming, soothing oil that contains some strong anti-inflammatory qualities. These anti-inflammatory properties, paired with its strong analgesic effect make it effective at relieving aches, pains and stiffness.
