Sprains and Strains Treated with Aromatherapy
What is the difference between a sprain and a strain?
The difference between a sprain and a strain is a sprain is an injury affecting a joint, with the tendons that attach muscles to the bones being overstretched and often torn. A strain is an injury to the muscles themselves, usually due to excessive or inappropriate exercise. lifting heavy weights and so on. The first treatment is a cold application; massage of the area is not helpful at this stage, but can be sued if the after-effects linger on.
The most useful essential oils is Lavender; use 5 drops to 15 ml (1 tbsp) of iced water for a compress. Chamomile oil may be used in the same way; where there is a sprain, try to keep the affected joint as still as possible initially to reduce internal bleeding and to allow healing to start as quickly as possible, ideally with the limb raised.
