Pain Relief Remedies with Birch
Birch is a powerful pain reliever and important in our arsenal of naturally powerful pain relief! There was a time when my sisters and I pooled our Birch for emergency pain purposes when my sister's husband was injured at work. Painful nerve damage was gratefully relieved by layering Birch with Helichrysum (for nerve damage). Enjoy the collection of remedies, print them out for your EO Journal

Note about Emu oil: The more I use it the more I appreciate this new find (new to me). On a basic level, Emu has hormone-like compounds called Eicosanoids that trigger the body to increase blood flow to an area also encouraging cells to soften their outer membrane to allow more oxygen in and more toxins out. These two factors encourage skin health and deep penetration to the dermis where new cells are generated – making it an excellent carrier for essential oils, especially pain blends. I also use this in my Hair Growth Root Stimulator Blend
, it's working well for me!
“I have to share something with you! I was just about ready to go to the ER this morning after a 3-day migraine. I had tried everything I could find and nothing was helping. I had my bottle of Birch in the shower and I thought, well, I’ve tried everything else… I mixed a few (3) drops in with my shampoo and massaged it in my scalp. I just let it sit there and tingle a few minutes before rinsing it out. After about 20 minutes my migraine was gone!! I don’t know how good Birch is for your hair but at that point I really didn’t care This stuff is wonderful!!”
