Pure steam distilled essential oils are AMAZING when you need pain relief* in our and others’ personal experiences and have become our family’s ‘medicine cabinet’ go-to first-aid solution. Plus, you don’t have to worry about over dosing, drug misuse, scary side effects, or pharmaceutical drug interactions, if you happen to be taking prescription meds for other health issues.
Avoid Side Effects of Over-the-Counter Pain Relievers
If you thought over-the-counter (OTC) pain killers are nothing to be concerned about, think again! We have a NEW 5-page Information Packet ($4.95) on the common, rare, severe, and sometimes dangerous side effects of aspirin (Bayer, Easprin, Ecotrin), ibuprofen (Advil, Aleve, Motrin, Nuprin), acetaminophen (Tylenol, Panadol and others).
In the past month, our Tai Chi teacher has dealt with two painful health issues:
1) an infected, inflamed wisdom tooth (which she ended up having extracted)
2) and this week, chronically sore C5-C6 neck vertebrae
In both cases, I mentioned GERMAN CHAMOMILE reduces inflammation*, counteracts infection*, and is an option for natural, safe, pain relief*.
Jan 23rd ~ Joanne phoned in desperation about a terrible toothache. She asked if I had ANY essential oils I could bring to relieve her pain, so she could teach our evening class. I selected two products: GERMAN CHAMOMILE essential oil and a favorite essential oils pain blend.
Suggested Joanne use 1-2 drops of GERMAN CHAMOMILE applied right on the gum around the offending tooth. Followed by the pain-relieving essential oil blend rubbed in gently over her cheek and along the jaw line. Amazingly, Joanne’s pain level was reduced to tolerable within 12-15 minutes (faster than Aspirin)!! She was relieved. The rest of our class was impressed.
Here are Joanne’s comments:
“I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you rescuing me. Without that help, I don’t think I could have made it through the class; it was a 10 + pain, and I had just pushed on through it all day with it getting worse, but I did not want to call everyone and cancel the classes.”
Feb 1 ~ Joanne emailed:
“As for the tooth, it came out extremely easily with NO pain since. Dr. Z asked me not to use anything on it at first, as I was to replace gauze pads every twenty minutes for the first two hours. Later in the day, after rinsing with salt water, I applied some of the German Chamomile. I had a meeting in Tiburon this morning, so I rather quickly brushed, rinsed, and ran off. It feels as if nothing at all was done – until I put my tongue up there and find a rather large space. At night, I will probably continue to use the oil. Again, many thanks”

I have used GERMAN CHAMOMILE essential oil in combination with PEPPERMINT essential oil for neuralgia. Here’s the post on that situation: Essential Oils for Neuralgia Relief: Quick and Gone!*
Feb 20 ~ Our Tai Chi teacher’s C5-C6 neck vertebrae are chronically sore and were especially painful this week. During yesterday’s class I noticed Joanne seemed to have a stiff neck. Asking her about it, she said after being rear-ended in a couple of car accidents when she was younger, and now with chronic arthritis, she’s ALWAYS in pain. I suggested, since she had a bottle of GERMAN CHAMOMILE essential oil, to use it (2-3 drops) in combination with LAVENDER essential oil (5-6 drops) on her sore neck that evening to see if she could get some relief.
Feb 21 ~ Here are Joanne’s email comments from this morning: “Doctor Cynthe, You beat me to it!! A note was already written to you in my head when I awoke this morning. The Lavender and German Chamomile worked wonders and gave amazing relief. This regimen will definitely be an important part of each day now.
With appreciation and all good wishes,
