Nerve Pain Relief Naturally


This is an EO blend to keep for emergency nerve pain in place of over the counter NSAID pain relievers and prescription pain meds that end up doing more damage than good. Why not give a naturally powerful pain remedy a go: no side effects, no addictive properties, no nonsense.

There's one essential oil that outshines all the others for nerve pain whether it be a wound or a pinched nerve and that's Helichrysum. I've used Helichrysum neat (undiluted) and in blends many times as a healer and for nerve pain and it's never let me down. For extra strength nerve pain relief I like to combine it with pure Black Pepper because it's warming, stimulating and improves circulation especially when it's COLD outside and symptoms are aggravated the most. It's also effective in removing toxins like uric acid from the blood, thereby benefiting people suffering from chronic rheumatism, arthritis, and gout. I also add pure Birch essential oil too for it's very potent pain relieving properties and because it stimulates the circulatory system, Birch is also helpful in giving relief of symptoms associated with improper circulation such as edema (swelling), rheumatism, and arthritis. The detoxifying property of birch oil also aids in this, as it removes toxins from the body which can be the root causes of these circulatory diseases. Pure Clove Bud essential oil is analgesic with flavonoids, which are anti-inflammatory agents. That anti-inflammatory quality will ease the inflammation or tension. For the same reason, clove oil is used as a pain reliever on other parts of the body, like joints and overworked muscles, relieving painful inflammation or swelling.

Important to Note: If you're allergic to aspirin, on blood thinners or epileptic omit the Birch in this blend. Pure Birch essential oil is a natural form of aspirin-containing methyl salicylate.

I prefer to combine the Nerve Pain & Block EO Blend with CW Naked Salve because it's a nutrition packed carrier base. Add 2 to 3 drops of the blend to a single serving size (scant 1/2 teaspoon) of Naked Salve for one time applications OR, if you'd like to make a jar of Nerve Pain & Block Blend Salve, simply add 45 drops of the blend to a 2 oz jar of CW Naked Salve.

If you'd like to make your own CW Naked Salve be sure to use the purest ingredients available! Your salve will only be as powerful as the ingredients you use! If you'd like me to make it, it's available in the CW Shop along with a description of the ingredients I choose to use in all my salves, I'm choosy as you will soon see :) 

  1. First option: Warm a 2 oz jar of CW Naked Salve in a warm oven until just melted, remove from heat and add 45 drops of the blend, stir and let cool. Apply topically as needed for pain.
  2. Second option: Add Helichrysum, Black Pepper, Birch and Clove to a 5 ml glass bottle. Apply 2 to 3 drops with a carrier topically as needed for pain.
