The Best Way To Relieve Pain Without Taking More Meds

Arthritis pain in my hands has been bothering me more frequently, but this helps relieve the pain so I don't have to rely entirely on meds.

Over the past few years, the once-mild case of arthritis I have in my hands that has been bothering me more and more. (Oh, the joys of getting older!) The occasional pain reliever used to keep the ache in check, but once it started bothering me more consistently, I didn’t want to rely entirely on medication to manage the pain.

So I started seeking a more natural solution to my arthritis pain, and I eventually found what I was looking for! And I wanted to tell you all about it today, in case you could use a natural remedy for aches and pains of your own!

My Secret Weapon For Natural Pain Relief

When my hands start aching, I reach for one thing: my bottle of Restore Essential Oil Blend! This powerhouse blend features wintergreen, camphor, peppermint, ylang ylang, helichrysum, blue tansy, blue chamomile, and osmanthus essential oils.

Each of these oils has therapeutic properties that help to combat soreness and pain. And in addition to being available in a standard bottle, you can also get it in a convenient pre-diluted roll-on bottle for on-the-go application.

Here are some of the ways you can use Restore to soothe away everyday aches and pains:

6 Ways To Use Restore Blend To Soothe Aches & Pains

1. Arthritis & Joint Pain

As I mentioned above, Restore is great for arthritis. When my hands start to bother me, I add a few drops of Restore to a small amount of fractionated coconut oil and rub it onto my hands.

The cooling effect is extremely soothing, and my hands feel so much better after just a few minutes! And it doesn’t just work on hands—you can use it to soothe aching knees, ankles, wrists, and other areas of arthritis or joint pain.

2. Stiff Shoulders

Anyone who spends the majority of their day working at a desk knows that it can be a real pain in the neck—literally! Use the Restore Ready-To-Apply Roll-On to roll the blend over a sore neck and stiff shoulders throughout your workday or afterward.

3. Aching Feet

After a long day on your feet, soothe away the pain with Restore! Add a few drops of it to a small amount of fractionated coconut oil (or your favorite massage oil) and rub it onto sore feet.

Or better yet, have your significant other do it for you so you can sit back and relax! 🙂

4. Crick In The Neck

Who among us hasn’t woken up with a crick in the neck after sleeping funny? It’s not a serious injury, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be seriously uncomfortable.

Use Restore to ease the discomfort and regain your range of motion in your neck. Just dilute a few drops with your favorite carrier oil, or roll it right on with the roll-on version.

5. Sore Muscles

Hitting the gym or trying to get in shape? Use Restore after your workout to soothe soreness and for its pleasant cooling effect.

6. All-Over Aches

Both colds and the flu can leave you feeling achy all over your body. Take a warm bath with Restore before bedtime to relax your sore muscles and ensure you’ll get a good night’s sleep!

I recommend adding 12 drops of Restore to 1/2 cup of Epsom salt. Mix it up, add it to warm bathwater, and soak for 20-30 minutes for relief and relaxation.
