Chiropractors Benefit from Essential Oils

Chiropractors know that when adjusting the body it is important to work on relaxing the muscle tissue first. Pharmaceutical grade essential oils can increase circulation, decrease soreness and discomfort, and calm and relax muscle tissue. The chemical structure of essential oils allows them to be absorbed into the bloodstream via the skin for internal benefit throughout the body within 30 seconds of application. Chiropractors can apply essential oils directly to the skin before and after each chiropractic treatment for lasting results.

Favorite Essential Oils Used by Chiropractors

Soothing Essential Oil Blend

The soothing blend is great for sore muscles and joints. Wintergreen, camphor, peppermint, blue tansy, German chamomile, helichrysum and osmanthus work together to ease achy joints and sore muscles. Its effects are deep and penetrating with sustained results.

Lavender or Serenity Essential Oil Blend

Lavender of the Serenity blend (Lavender, Cedarwood, Ho Wood, Ylang Ylang, Marjoram, Roman Chamomile, Vetiver, Vanilla Bean Absolute, Hawaiian Sandalwood),  are wonderful tools when patients feel anxious about their visit or chiropractic treatment. Applying these essential oils to the inside of the wrists and over the heart area or diffusing them in the treatment room or waiting area can have calming and soothing effects.

Chiropractors Value Quality & Consistency

The Pure Tested Grade Essential Oils I use and recommend for my clients  are 100% pure, natural, aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants, following the strictest quality control protocol in the essential oils industry. They do not contain fillers or artificial ingredients that would dilute their active qualities and are free of contaminants such as pesticides, heavy metals or other chemical residues. As important as it is to keep contaminants out of our essential oils, assuring the presence of their active compounds, at the right levels, and consistency from bottle to bottle, is necessary to guarantee safety, effectiveness, and pharmaceutical grade level.
