Essential Oils for Back Pain with DIY Pain Blend by Loving Essential Oils

Back pain. We’ve all experienced it at one time or another, and we all know that when we’re dealing with it, it’s really no fun at all. Learn how to use Essential Oils for Back Pain plus try out the DIY Pain Relief recipe.

Back pain can happen for a variety of reasons – from medical conditions to simple over-use or strain. Lifting and carrying heavy objects, sitting too long, twisting, and jerking the back muscles quickly are all common reasons one might experience back pain when an underlying medical concern isn’t present.

When we’re talking about medical concerns of the back, these include conditions such as muscle strains, spinal stenosis, herniated discs, arthritis, and osteoporosis.

6 Easy Ways to Prevent Back Pain

Back pain can be experienced in the neck (cervical spine), middle of the back (thoracic spine), and/or lower back (lumbar spine) and can be an intense, sharp pain, achiness, tightness/stiffness, or even muscular spasms.

While the causes and actual symptoms of back pain are varied, the one thing they all have in common is that when we’re experiencing them, we want to relieve our pain as quickly as possible. That being said, as the well-known cliché says – an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure, so let’s first talk about ways that we can prevent back pain.

1. Use good posture. How you sit, stand, and move throughout the day has a significant impact on your spinal health. Poor posture can lead to back pain and other problems.

2. When lifting, lift with the legs, not the back. Did you know that most back pain is caused by improper lifting? If you're not careful, you can easily injure your back while lifting heavy objects. But with a little bit of practice using your legs and not your back, you can safely lift. Also, be sure to get help when lifting heavy objects.

3. Do back stretches periodically throughout the day. This is especially important if you have a desk job. Doing back stretches throughout the day has been proven to alleviate back pain and stiffness associated with prolonged periods of sitting.

4. Exercise. Being active is a great way to prevent back pain – choose an activity you love and get moving! Exercise is a great way to strengthen your muscles and keep your spine flexible, both of which can help reduce your risk of back pain.

5. Eat a balanced diet. Eating healthy includes eating veggies, fruits, protein (meat) and whole grains. These foods contain natural vitamins and minerals which can help with LBP. Eating too much junk food causes inflammation in the body which causes back pain to worsen. So make sure you eat a balanced diet!

6. Chiropractic care and/or massage therapy. These alternative health treatments can not only alleviate back pain, but when used regularly, can stop back pain before it even starts.

Here is a quick back stretch video with 3 simple stretches that anyone can do:

Now, let’s move on to what to do when we do experience back pain.

Natural Ways to Relieve Back Pain

Back pain is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor. It can be caused by a number of things, from injuries to poor posture. If you're struggling with back pain, there are a number of natural ways you can relieve it.

- Visit the chiropractor
- Rest while using ice or heat over the affected area
- Use essential oils for relief

Use in a pain relieving massage oil or mixing with Epsom salts in the bath are both great application techniques. Remember, if you’re using essential oils in the bath you need a proper carrier oil or other dispersant – Epsom salts do not count as a carrier!

Ginger oil has anti-inflammatory properties which makes it great for relieving aches and pains caused by inflammation such as arthritis. Ginger has been known to relieve nausea which is great because having lower back pain can sometimes lead to feeling nauseous. Its warming properties help with pain relief too!
