Essential oils can work for cramping muscles…stomach cramps, muscle cramps, restless leg cramps.
In case studies, I have found that certain essential oils can help alleviate every day cramping that can make life miserable. A combination helped alleviate a client of stomach cramping associated with IBS, while another combination helped with menstrual cramps. I had a client who had issues with restless leg syndrome. A carefully blended combination of oils had her sleeping well for the first time in months.
How does that work?
Some oils are powerful antispasmodics such as Bergamot (Citrus bergamia), Roman chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile), and clary sage (Salvia sclarea). Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is also a smooth muscle relaxant with properties to alleviate nausea and diarrhea.
The chemical components involved here are linalyl acetate, d-limonene, and a-zingiberene.
There are many oils to choose from that have antispasmodic properties. When working with clients, be sure to use oils that they like the aroma of, and would work for their particular history. The importance here is in the Client Intake form and subsequent consultation.
