Peppermint (Mentha piperita) Peppermint is a wonderful essential oil to use for relieving painful muscles and joints. When added to a blend, it is especially beneficial with cooling any “hot” areas. This is due to the chemical constituent of menthol. Menthol produces a sensation of coolness which the causes the body to increase blood flow to the area of application, thus creating a warming effect.
Plai Central (Zingiber cassumunar) Plai is a fantastic analgesic. It is able to relieve pain for 16-20 hours.
