Warming Pain Blend with Emu Oil

featured products

The more I use it the more I appreciate this new find, Emu oil.  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 started using a high-quality Emu oil when I read about its ability to promote root stimulation for hair growth.  I created a blend of Emu oil and essentials oils; Root Stimulating Hair Growth Serum for my thinning hair and I'm loving the results so yes, I'm absolutely sold on Emu oil!  It's quickly absorbed into my skin and scalp and a little goes a long way!  Emu oil contains Omega 3, 6 and 9 - Omega 9 is the major fatty acid and responsible for quick transport of bioactive compounds into the skin and deep penetration.  Its overall composition is very close to our own skin's fatty acid composition. Ok!  Now that you have a basic background on Emu oil let me just say that I realize it's not vegan-friendly but because it's a by-product of the Emu meat industry so I feel it's sustainable.  If you want an alternative, please consider organic rosehip seed oil. For this pain blend, I chose warming oils like Black Pepper and Clove that the Emu Oil could take deep into the tissues of sore muscles joined by the cooling and pain relieving properties of essential oils like Birch and Peppermint.  I also added Helichrysum for its renowned healing properties, but you could substitute Frankincense as well.

 

Warming Pain Blend with Emu Oil
Recipe Type: Warming Pain Blend
Author: Camp Wander
A pain blend of essential oils combined with deep skin penetrating properties of Emu oil.
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Add essential oils first then fill the remainder of roller bottle with Emu oil. Apply topically, as needed.
  2. Note: Omit Birch if allergic to aspirin or on blood thinners.
If you know me at all, you know I have a passion for finding natural alternatives that enhance our use of essential oils, Emu oil is quickly becoming one of my go-to products. I'll let you in on a little secret, I now use Emu oil in my Ultimate Skin Serum! Emu oil also has the ability to thicken skin, reportedly 14% if used twice a day.  For my face, my scalp and the back of my hands {because nothing shows your age like dry, wrinkly, sun-spotted hands} I consistently use Emu oil along with my favorite age-defying EOs!

Helichrysum is a key EO for lightening sunspots! I’ve been using my Ultimate Skin Serum w helichrysum in it on my hands and seeing a marked improvement.

I’m so glad you write about Emu oil as I have used it in the past but had forgotten how wonderful it truly is! And after reading your post about how it is quickly absorbed, I am thinking it would be an effective anti-inflammatory go-to if one added Black Pepper EO and Turmeric EO. What are your thoughts?

Linda, oddly enough I get a lot of feedback from Dreamy Sleep Salve users who tell me that the salve also relieves their RLS symptoms. You might try it :)

Love the concept of the oil blends, I’ve been using Emu oil for my fibromyalgia pain but never mixed it. Tomorrow, definitely I’m buying the oils I don’t have on hand.

What about using Copaiba EO in this? I have been reading a lot of info lately regarding this oil and have used it in a blend with Clove for sciatic pain that really seemed to help.

Rebecca, I Love this warming pain blend! I’ve loved the Aches and Pains salve. Which has been a life saver for me when my feet and legs ache. Which is almost always. The warming pain blend works well, and is amazing how fast it melts into the skin. But I still love the Aches and Pains salve too. Several friends love the A&P salve for the arthritis in their hands. We’ve found it eases non-migraine headaches and helps restless leg. And spreading it down your spine when your back aches is almost euphoric! (Spelling) Thanks so much for sharing these blends with us!!!

This protocol would be good to try, so would Lemongrass in a carrier oil topically.

I am new to your website and new to using essential oils for pain relief. I have never tried essential oils for anything other than lavender in a bath. I have severe pain in an elbow (diagnosed with tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow in the same elbow) Orthopedic surgeon suggesting cortisone injections but I’m not thrilled due to certain things I have read about. I am also hoping to avoid surgery, so am wondering if you have any feedback.
Thanks so much
