What is osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis, also called degenerative joint disease, is the most common form of arthritis. In a healthy joint, a smooth cartilage encases the ends of the bones. This cartilage allows the bones to glide smoothly over one another, and also absorbs shocks of physical movement, such as running/walking.

Osteoarthritis affects the cartilage of the joints: its surface breaks down and wears away. The bones under the cartilage are then able to rub together, causing pain, swelling, and loss of motion. Bits of bone or cartilage can break off and float inside the joint space, causing still more pain and damage. Unlike some other forms of arthritis, osteoarthritis affects joints only, not internal organs.

Essential oils recommended for osteoarthritis

Several properties of essential oils can be used:

  • Detoxifying oils, which boost urine production and toxin elimination: Cypress, Fennel, Juniper and Lemon
  • Analgesic/sedative oils, which reduce pain: Benzoin, Chamomile, Lavender and Rosemary
  • Rubefacient oils, to improve local blood circulation: Black Pepper, Ginger and Marjoram.

To apply the oil, you can use a bath, hot compresses or a massage. Do not forget to move the joint immediately after, otherwise the heating can cause congestion, which will make the condition worse rather than better.

If the arthritis is of long standing, it might not be possible to undo major damage to joint surfaces. However, you can still reduce pain, improve mobility and prevent further damage. When the arthritis is treated soon after it begins, complete rehabilitation could be possible.
