When it comes to finding real pain relief, the mainstream has failed miserably.
Sure, some may work. But you could end up with liver damage…or addicted…or you know… dead. It’s scary stuff.
One of the “safest” over-the-counter pain relievers, acetaminophen, is the leading cause for calls to Poison Control Centers. About 62,000 people overdose each year on this simple pain-reliever.1
So who would have thought that a real solution exists—one that you don’t have to even swallow, chew or drink? One that is completely natural. And more important…safe.
A recent study showed that it not only relieved pain in people who’d just had total knee replacement surgery, it significantly eased their pain.
What is this odd but effective pain reliever?
Eucalyptus essential oil.2
The researchers found that people who’d just had surgery reported less pain after inhaling the oil for 30 minutes. They did this for three days in a row. And each day they reported less and less pain. Meanwhile, the control group grew even more uncomfortable as the days passed.
And something else interesting happened during that time…
The “eucalyptus group” also experienced a significant decrease in diastolic and systolic blood pressure. That shows they were more comfortable and relaxed.
And remember, they didn’t have to eat it. They didn’t even have to apply it topically. All they had to do was smell it, and it helped them feel better.
Eucalyptus is a tree. You’re probably already aware of its uses for respiratory conditions. (Think Vicks and its signature smell). And it’s also an anti-inflammatory.3 We suggest you keep a bottle of this essential oil in your medicine cabinet for a rainy day. Just don’t ever ingest the oil. And if you’re going to apply it to your skin, make sure you dilute it first.
But if you’re in pain and want a drug-free, quick-fix solution? Just put some on a washcloth and hold it under your nose for a half hour. You’ll ease your pain while reducing tension and your blood pressure.
