Essential Oil Treatments for Sciatica

Sciatica is the compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve, resulting in pain or a tingling sensation in the back and hips, and sometimes also down the legs. Many essential oils have anti-inflammatory properties, and so are extremely helpful in the treatment of sciatica, through hot and cold compresses on the inflamed area, and in bath oils.

Good oils to use are geranium, which has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, and ginger, which is analgesic and antispasmodic, and also warming. Marjoram is another oil that has excellent anti-inflammatory properties, and black pepper helps to tone the muscles, aiding the treatment of sciatica. Anti-inflammatory oils have been used in massage as part of traditional medicine in India for centuries.
