Living with nerve pain due to peripheral neuropathy is a serious condition that can impact all areas of your life. It’s no understatement that neuropathy pain can rear its ugly head at the most inappropriate moments—walking from the parking lot to the entrance of the grocery store, a few minutes after arriving at your job, or even as you’re simply eating down to eat dinner. In fact, the daily, chronic agony is likely what has led you to this article as you find yourself searching for some form of relief to your condition.
There are neuropathy sufferers who swear that a variety of home remedies and essential oils, when used faithfully, will provide release from the consistent pain caused by neuropathy. We can’t confirm the validity of these efforts, but definitely can provide a more permanent solution... more about that in a bit! Right now let’s discuss some of the most popular essential oils for neuropathy and nerve pain.
A common home remedy for a variety of aches and pains, peppermint oil has long been touted as a genuine benefit to help those with neuropathy find some relief. Containing antioxidants, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, peppermint oil has been attributed to reducing a range of muscle spasms while helping to regulate the immune system. Peppermint oil, and other herbs (like menthol, eucalyptus, spearmint, and even capsaicin), are called counter-irritants because they cause a distraction from the pain.
Most utilize peppermint oil topically, rubbing it on the affected areas, while others prefer to inhale the oils by using a diffuser. Although the massage and distraction methods can provide temporary relief, the root cause of the pain is still present, leading to future flare-ups.
Lavender oil has always been one of those “go-to” treatments for a wide array of ailments including digestive issues, nausea, headaches, and, of course, nerve pain resulting from neuropathy.
As with peppermint oil, lavender oil can be inhaled or used directly on the skin. It’s important to note that lavender oil should be diluted before using either method. Is this essential oil a better method than peppermint oil remains unknown, but, like peppermint oil, it can’t be considered a true cure for neuropathy pain—only a temporary escape from the pain.
St. John’s Wort
Named after St. John the Baptist, St. John’s Wort is an herb containing chemicals hyperforin and hypericin, both said to have medicinal benefits that mask pain. These chemicals have been claimed to increase norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin.
St. John’s Wort is used to treat mild depression which does mean there are definitely medical benefits when utilized properly. As for other claims that St. John’s Wort can relax muscles, reduce swelling, fight infections and help eliminate neuropathy nerve pain, it’s possible- however, there's just simply not enough research to prove these claims. It's also worth it to note that St. John's Wort can interact negatively with other medications you may be taking.
Chamomile is a medicinal plant that has been utilized for hundreds of years and just may be found in your pantry right now as it’s a very common ingredient in certain types of tea. Most people who claim the benefits of chamomile can reduce pain do drink it in tea, but chamomile oil can also be added to moisturizer or body lotion to use topically.
Several studies have been performed to identify whether chamomile can help reduce pain caused by a variety of factors. Reducing menstrual pain, slowing down the progression of osteoporosis, improving sleep and helping with neuropathy pain have all proved inconclusive.
