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 or remember you can search them here anytime day or night!

My husband has arthritis in his knees. What would you recommend to help him with some relief? I got a severe case of shingles which resulted in nerve pain after the sores were cleared and am using your nerve pain. It is so soothing. I just purchased some for my sister who has fibromyalgia. Keep on making your products, we love them. Ready to get husband on salve for his knees.

Hi Rebecca – great information – quick question for you – for a spray bottle application – I’m thinking Witch Hazel would great to use. I prefer the salve myself but seems the men in my family aren’t as happy. Since they are agreeable to try the spray I’m hoping that will work too. As always thanks for sharing!
Alice, emu oil is by product but I do understand your feelings on the matter. I would try hemp seed oil or fractionated coconut oil. I like hemp oil for it’s nutrition factor – lots of essential fatty acids!
I believe I hyperlinked where I purchase organic Emu oil…on Amazon :) Click on the link it should take directly to the item!
Would love to try your pain remedy, where can I get the emu oil?
Thanks for all your help. Jane
Is there something besides Emu Oil that can be used? They have to kill the Emu to get the oil!
I have a co-worker that has gout and he is in quite a bit of pain. Do you think that the Aches & Pains Blend would help? Do you have any other suggestions?
You’re the best!
Thanks! What size salve container would you recommend for the pain blend recipe as written or would it need to be increased to receive the same benefits?
Thank you for sharing theses recipes!
Yes, salve would be a nice base too!
Would the Warming Pain Blend work if added to the salve?
Do you have a recipe that is comparable to deep blue?
How often do you recommend to use the Aches & Pains Blend?
Pam, try 2 drops each pure Frankincense and Myrrh in a little carrier oil. I’m more and more impressed with the the two EOs used together for pain and inflammation, one enhances the other.
My husband broke his knee cap a couple of years ago and still has pain from it. He also takes a blood thinner. Which oil could be used in place of the Birch? Thank you.
I have a weird food allergy to some raw fruits and vegetables and have been told it’s due to hay fever (birch tree proteins). Any idea if people have had problems using this oil?
What would you recommend for a ganglion cyst on the wrist?
Yes – marjoram and lavender are helpful for inflammation as well as lemon, peppermint, cypress & frankincense. Experiment a little find the right combination that works best for you! Thank you for your kind words and question.
Hello! I love reading your recipes and following your site! I don’t have any white fir on hand for inflammation in the Aches and Pains Blend. I do have both marjoram and lavender on hand. Do you recommend either of these as a replacement for white fir or have any other suggestions? Thanks!
I’d like to add the white fir blend to a 4 oz naked salve-would the proportions be the same as stated above? (30 birch, 10 each of frank. and white fir) Thanks so much!
I don’t but Spark Naturals has a similar blend called Amend: http://sparknaturals.com/index.php/eo-blends/bl-amend-5ml.html/?id=6
I made your warming pain blend today right after I pulled the muscles in my back changing the sheets on my bed! Because I hadn’t been prepared to make it yet, I didn’t have emu oil so I grabbed the closest oil I could reach – almond oil. I also didn’t have black pepper oil so I used red chili oil. I also added copaiba, had my husband massage the blend into my back and – wow!! What relief! Thank you so much. You are such a blessing.
Hi Laura, my daughter has had great success applying Frankincense topically to a ganglion cyst on the top of her hand.
