Aromassage for Pain

I have talked about massage techniques for use at home with your own massage and essential oils. I’ve even had the need to use the aromassage techniques on myself my occasionally. Last night my husband began having pains in his back around his right shoulder blade. He had been doing yard work more strenuously than usual and he was more sore than normal. Around bed time, he was in really bad shape and could hardly take a deep breath. I thought he was having a heart attack or something so I asked to look at his back.

I had him take off his shirt and lay on the bed where I could more easily reach his back. His shoulder blade was very red but I took no pity on him. I poured about one teaspoon of jojoba oil into the palm of my hand and added four drops of rosemary essential oil (the bottle must already be open and ready to use.)  I used effleurage massage on his back. That is a big word that simply means you use firm or gentle soothing strokes to enable the essential oils to penetrate the body and bring about relaxation and calm to sore and aching muscles. When I stopped after only about ten minutes, he said it felt 100%  better.
