Sweet Birch - Betula lenta essential oil is my go-to for acute pain. I like to blend it with warm oils such as Clove Bud and Black Pepper. In my experience, Birch is especially powerful combined with Helichrysum. While Birch is similar to Wintergreen essential oil (both are rich in methyl salicylate) I prefer the complex soft minty, uplifting aroma of Birch.
Birch essential oil is bright and uplifting to the senses, an analgesic, detoxifier and a decongestant. Dilute Birch with Camp Wander Naked Salve for safe topical application to areas of discomfort. Avoid Birch if you're allergic to aspirin, on blood thinners or epileptic. Consider Silver Fir and Frankincense as an alternative to Birch.
Diffuse Birch with Eucalyptus or Ravansara for an effective decongestant.
If you need potent pain relief, consider my Nerve Pain & Block Blend. Make the blend yourself or purchase Nerve Pain & Block Salve in the CW Shop.
