    I've worked with EO's for many years and thru all my research and use for PAIN, I find that Wintergreen, Marjoram, Frankensence, Myrrh and Rosemary are my best help for Pain in my knee. A friend who is also into health care as I am, just sent me info on Copaiba Oil and it's said to be very powerful for pain issues, little is to be used. This oil is from Brazil. So I probably will order it as it' sounds very good and very affordable. It can be added to a carrier like coconut oil or olive oil.

    Now I realize MOST here are not interested in this type medicine but I'm posting anyway.

    I wonder about the entire CBD craze. People claim it really works but I'm skeptical. I'm sure some things work. I know for example that

    ...the bark of white willow contains salicin, which is a chemical similar to aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid). In combination with the herb's powerful anti-inflammatory plant compounds (called flavonoids), salicin is thought to be responsible for the pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects of the herb.

    Many herbs from Nature do work and I use White Willow Bark a couple times a day but with commerce, THEY keep working on new and more expensive Stuff for the public to BUY......it's all about Buying and Money.

    Population continues to grow, people need to work and it's a cycle that continues. One has to find what is comfortable in their lives. The more Money one has the More they spend on STUFF.....

    So why do you use pharma drugs if they are so bad?

    So you research but follow no science? Generally research and science go together.

    l don’t think you should ever claim you engage in critical thinking nor should you attack people for being ignorant and stupid.

    ~ I recently found pure peppermint oil useful in stopping itch from insect bites. A very strong oil , apparently a few drops on the forehead and back of neck can help with headache. I find putting a drop on toothpaste is nice. Also seems a drop in a little water can calm a "nervous" stomach ... :aww:

    Many medications originally came from plants. But they are synthesized for mass production. We can't have entire cities running into the woods for tree bark every time they get a headache. There wouldn't be any trees with bark left.
