Essential Oil Treatments for Neuralgia and Stress

Neuralgia, or nerve pain, is a condition whereby the sufferer experiences an intermittent but intense shooting pain throughout a particular nerve pathway, most commonly in the head or face, resulting from a damaged nerve, or stress-induced. Palmarosa is excellent at strengthening the nervous system – try adding to a warm bath.

It is very powerful, so must be diluted with a carrier oil. A number of essential oils can be used alongside massage to help alleviate nerve pain, particularly helichrysum, chamomile, lavender and marjoram, mixed with a carrier oil. St John’s Wort also helps to repair damaged nerves, and Lemon Balm has been used since the Middle Ages to calm anxiety.
