Here at the Zim’s blog we make pain relief our top priority. Our muscles work hard and sometimes we feel it and it hurts! It’s a good thing we have the Zim’s line of pain relief products that can help relieve pain quickly and effectively. Some of the reasons Zim’s works is because of important ingredients like arnica and tea tree essential oils. However, there are other oils that can be helpful when we are in pain and we are going to talk about some of them today.

Peppermint oil

Peppermint contains menthol which is another important ingredient in the Zim’s line of pain relief products. Menthol cools off the skin and has analgesic, antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties.

Lavender oil

Lavender oil is great for its relaxing and calming properties. It is a favorite for potpourri and aromatherapy applications. However, it can also be helpful in relieving pain and inflammation.

Cypress oil

Cypress oil is known for being effective for muscle spasms or cramps. Research has also found it to have antibacterial qualities which is a big win these days.

Clove oil

Clove oil is sometimes used to treat sore muscles. When used it has a warming effect and can relax us and help our muscles feel better.

Lemongrass oil

Lemongrass oil is great if our main concern is swollen muscles. It doesn’t help as much with pain relief but it works quickly to reduce inflammation and swelling, which will help us feel more comfortable and recover from a workout.

Ginger oil

Ginger oil is another oil with warming properties that works well on sore muscles. Plus the aromatherapy can help with nausea or other problems so it is a good one to have in your collection.

So there you have it! What are some essential oils that you use for pain relief? We would love to hear about them in the comments section.
