Massage Your Pain Away

You can use massage techniques at home with essential oils. Use these techniques on yourself, your spouse or on other members of your family. One night last winter, husband began having pains in his back around his right shoulder blade last night. He had been shoveling snow and that is not something you do every day. Around bed time, he was really sore and could hardly take a deep breath. I thought he was having a heart attack or something so I asked him to take off his shirt so I could see his back.

His back and shoulders blade were very red so I took pity on him and offered to give him a massage which he graciously accepted. 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.
