Best Essential Oils for Arthritis

  1. Eucalyptus essential oil:

In one study, People who inhaled eucalyptus oil for 30 minutes on three consecutive days after knee replacement surgery reported less pain than those in the control group. The anti-inflammatory characteristics of eucalyptus oil and its ability to raise serotonin, a brain chemical that appears to reduce pain, are thought to be responsible for the decreased pain[1].

  1. Orange essential oil

Aromatherapy using orange essential oil as an alternative medication could help patients with arthritis. It has the potential to speed up patient healing and discharge while also lowering inpatient costs. Different studies show that orange oil, which has anti-inflammatory characteristics, could reduce arthritis pain[2]. 

  1. Frankincense essential oil

Frankincense oil is a fragrant oil that has been used for thousands of years. It has antiseptic, regenerative, and anti-inflammatory effects. In a 2010 study, frankincense was proven as a possible treatment for osteoarthritis-related inflammatory symptoms[3].

  1. Lavender essential oil

Lavender essential oil is most commonly used in aromatherapy. It used to treat pain, depression, and anxiety for centuries. It can be inhaled, used topically or added to a bathtub.

The effectiveness of a 5-per cent blend of lavender essential oil on osteoarthritis was investigated in a 2016 study. After the first week, members who rubbed 5 mL of the lavender oil onto their inflamed joints nine times reported less pain over three weeks[4].

  1. Bergamot essential oil

Bergamot essential oil has been shown in studies to reduce inflammation, lower cholesterol, and improve mood, which may be beneficial to persons with RA[5].

In addition to its anti-inflammatory properties when applied to the skin, studies reveal that chemicals contained in bergamot have a positive effect on pain perception in humans and animals.
