What is gout?

Gout is a disease that occurs when the body is not eliminating uric acid efficiently. Due to an higher concentration in the blood, uric acid is deposited as crystals in joint spaces, causing inflammation, pain, stiffness, loss of mobility and eventually damage to the joint surfaces. The joints affected are often those that have been most heavily used: in sports, or through incorrect posture and where extra loads are imposed on the major weight-bearing joints (hips, knees and ankles) in people who are seriously overweight

In gout, the joints of the toes are most commonly affected, though the fingers may be, too. Attacks are intensely painful, with acute inflammation of the joint. After repeated attacks, large deposits of uric acid crystals cause permanent swelling and deformity of joints.

Essential oils for gout

Several essential oils can be used for gout.

First, if the pain is too acute, an analgesic oil is useful to reduce pain and allow to rest. Wintergreen essential oil is good for this. It can be quickly absorbed by skin when applied topically, and will give you a quick relief. Furthermore, it promotes circulation, and will help to clear the painful zone of any uric acid.

Then, you have tonic oils to boost circulation, and diuretic to induce urine production and facilitate elimination or uric acid through it (remember to drink a lot more water so that the body has enough water to produce the urine, otherwise, you may be dehydrated, which will worsen the symptoms). Here are a few to choose from:

  • Tonic essential oils: Basil, Fennel, and Rosemary
  • Diuretic essential oils: Thyme and Lemongrass

Finally, you can also use anti-inflammatory oils to reduce the inflammation, such as Chamomile for example.

You can blend together and dilute in 10ml of carrier oil:

  • 5 drops of an analgesic oil (if the pain is too acute): Wintergreen
  • 5 drops of a tonic oil: choose above
  • 5 drops of a diuretic oil: choose above
  • 5 drops of an anti-inflammatory oil: Chamomile
