Essential Oil Benefits:

Peppermint Essential Oil is known to be calming and numbing. Its cooling and anti-inflammatory properties are part of the reason why it is so successful at relieving headache symptoms, and it is even used to reduce the pain of migraines.

Eucalyptus Essential Oil helps to relieve stress and pain. The volatile eucalyptus oil is analgesic and anti-inflammatory in nature.

Frankincense Essential Oil promotes deep breathing and relaxation, which can open your breathing passages and reduce blood pressure, moving your mental state back to calmness.

Lavender Essential Oil includes its ability to eliminate nervous tension, relieve pain, disinfect the scalp and skin, enhance blood circulation and treat respiratory problems. Lavender is also known as an excellent remedy for various types of pains including those caused by sore and tense muscles & muscular aches.

Magnesium Oil contains a high concentration of magnesium chloride, plus other minerals. It is not an oil, but when you put it on your skin it looks and feels a bit oily. It’s simply called magnesium “oil” because of the oily feel of magnesium chloride suspended in water. Magnesium is absorbed much more effectively through contact with skin. Health benefits of magnesium: Improves sleep quality, calms overactive nerves, relieves stress, boosts energy level, strengthens immune system, hydrates and strengthens skin and helps relieves aches, pains, spasms.
