Every now-and-then, the top joint on the middle finger of my right hand flares up painfully.
It gets slightly hot, swollen (visibly puffy), stiff & hard to bend, and quite SORE – sharply so! Don’t know what causes the flare-ups or if they may be early indications of arthritis? (Several of my father’s family members do have distorting arthritis in their hands.) In any case, it’s uncomfortable, that’s for sure! I don’t particularly like pain, and definitely wish to prevent any permanent joint damage.
It happened again yesterday, in the early evening after exercising. Thought to myself, “You don’t have to put up with this. Use your marvelous therapeutic essential oils to see how quickly they heal the flare-up.”
Knew just which therapeutic essential oils to use:
Put 2 drops ~ one each of German Chamomile & Lavender ~ on my painful finger (a generous dose of essential oil for a finger joint). Rubbed them on the sore joint until the essential oils had vanished into my skin. Even before the blue hue of the German Chamomile was absorbed – less than 5 minutes – the joint had calmed down, pain was completely gone, and flexibility restored!!! Frankly, I was astonished at how quickly and effectively the two essential oils worked, exclaiming about it to my husband and son.
