Essential oils

Has anyone had any success with essential oils as treatment ? I’ve recently started diffusing lavendar and euciliptis at night . And rubbing in small amounts of frankensense and myrrh onto my chest and shoulders (with a carrier). i’m secretly hoping a develop a golds. touch 🙂

I do feel some benefit, but than can always be true of anything related to general well-being , and it’s too early to say for sure. Just wondered if anyone had any good long term experience! I’m willing to try anything better than injecting toxins into my body (i’m still on rebif)

Hi @tomsoshi and welcome.

There’s been a few previous mentions of essential oils. You can locate them using the Forum Search function (magnifying glass, top left) and searching for “essential oil”. 😉

I think you might find that overdose of essential oils is also toxic. Accordingly aromatherapy is very cautious with some oils which cannot be used in pregnancy.

If you’re not happy with Rebif perhaps you could discuss with a medical professional despite the limits in Sing. It’s not very effective. Is it worth next time you in the UK getting a private consult?

Hi @tomsoshi, welcome to Shift. I don’t use essential oils bodily, but have regular massage with a wonderful practitioner who does. I have used oil burners for decades. Whatever people say or disclaim about oils, nothing beats the smell of coming through the door and being enveloped by rose geranium or lemongrass. That feelgood factor is priceless 🙂

I’m all about the aromatherapy btw. Definitely feel good factor and I think it can help with depression and stress which MSers have to bear .just not as a disease modifier 🤔 in the clinical sense.

I have been using Frankincense and Copiba on the roof of my mouth for some time now. I use several different oils topically and internally to help with several things. Pain, stress, hot flashes, vertigo and put lemon in my water daily.
I also defuseseveral different ones daily to help with the multiple daily struggles.

tomsoshi, I have just acquired a diffuser, not sure why, I have been told various oils help with a range of things, my ex wife swears by them and she is knowledgeable, so give it a go, if nothing else you will smell nice
