So many choices for Pain so little time!
PanAway, Deep Relief, and Cool Azul, which oil should you use and when?
First off, there is no exact answer for everyone, each person has a different chemical make-up and each oil reacts differently on every person. Just as some people prefer lavender essential oil to create a soothing and calming environment before bed, others prefer Peace and Calming, and some prefer Cedarwood.
Learning to use essential oils is a journey, so try experimenting with different oils to find your best fit!
Here is a little comparison:
Deep Relief: Comes pre-diluted in a roller-ball, making it easy to take on the go, throw in gym bag, and easy to apply.
Essential oils: Peppermint, Lemon, Balsam Fir, Clove, Copaiba, Wintergreen, Helichrysum, Vetiver, Dorado Azul.
Did you know? Menthol is responsible for the cooling sensation Peppermint causes when it is inhaled or applied to the skin!
PanAway: All the oils in PanAway are found in Deep Relief, however, PanAway is NOT pre-diluted, making this a very potent and powerful essential oil. PanAway has a child proof cap because of the high amount of wintergreen essential oil and wintergreen CAN NOT be used internally. Wintergreen is high in a constituent called Methyl salicylate. Methyl salicylate is used as the active ingredient in many sports creams, but usually from a synthetic source.
Oils: Wintergreen, Helichrysum, Clove, Peppermint.
Did you know? Eugenol, the main constituent in clove, has been heavily researched for its beneficial properties.
Cool Azul: Is not pre-diluted and features two Young Living exclusive oils: Dorado Azul and Plectranthus Oregano. Young Living is the only company that sells these two oils, and they are homegrown on Young Living farms! Cool Azul also has a child-proof cap because of the high amount of wintergreen essential oil
Which is your favorite for knocking out pain?
My favorite is Panaway. I remember when I first tried it, I had rubbed it on my lower back one day just before that oh so wonderful, monthly visitor dropped by for the week…the one I always called Grandma Freddy in my school day’s to hide the information from nosy boys! It stopped my cramps for three whole day’s with only one use! I was instantly sold! Now I use it for all types of pain and it’s very effective! Not always the best for every type, but it works for most things, really well!
