Made with a coconut oil and beeswax base, a combination of essential oils: black pepper, peppermint, eucalyptus, camphor, rosemary and cassia oil, have been added that target pain and inflammation. A study published in the Journal of Advanced Pharmaceutical Technology & Research tested the active components of cassia oil and found that a compound, cinnamaldehyde not only inhibited inflammatory mediators, but also activated anti-inflammatory mediators. Originally referred to as “eucalyptol” by the scientific community, the health benefits of eucalyptus oil come from a chemical now known as cineole — an organic compound shown to hold astounding, widespread medicinal effects, including reducing inflammation. Camphor is often used in combination with eucalyptus as it stimulates nerve endings that relieve symptoms of pain and itching. Peppermint essential oil is a very effective natural painkiller and muscle relaxant. It is especially helpful in soothing an aching back, sore muscles and tension headaches. A study shows that peppermint oil applied topically has pain relief benefits associated with fibromyalgia and myofascial pain syndrome. Due to its warming, anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties, black pepper oil works to reduce muscle injuries, tendonitis, and symptoms of arthritis and rheumatism.
