Life is too short to worry about it
Here are my FAVORITE natural pain relief alternatives! 1) White Willow Bark White willow bark is a natural source of salicin (converted to salicylic acid in the body), the active ingredient in aspirin. You can buy it as a tea, pills or extract and use in place of aspirin.
2) This herbal healing cream It’s GREAT for muscle aches and some anti-inflammatory action. It’s best for temporary relief of joint, back and muscle pain.
3) Herbal healing bath salts Bath salts are a transdermal source of magnesium to help ease muscle aches and related inflammation. Start with 1/2 cup. Soak for at least 15-20 minutes. If you’re new to aromatherapy salt baths, try them before bedtime, as they can induce sleepiness!
4) Essential Oils Did you know that many pharmaceutical drugs are just a synthetic imitation of plant compounds? In order to patent a drug you need to synthetically alter it because nothing found in nature can be patented. So we see aspirin inspired by the salicylic acid in white willow bark, and valium inspired by compounds valerian root. Essential oils contain highly concentrated compounds from plants that can be used therapeutically for many ailments. we have some great blends herbal healing and headache relief
