Oil of the Week: PanAway
Posted by Jennifer Triassi, Yoga Instructor and Young Living Essential Oils Independent Distributor
Every week, I highlight an essential oil (or blend) and explain how it can be used and today, I’m talking PanAway. While it’s called PanAway, but you could easily insert a letter “i,” and just think of it as “PainAway.”
PanAway is a super-popular essential oil blend used by many everyday to reduce pain and inflammation associated with muscle soreness, cramps, and even chronic arthritis. It helps to reduce bruising and accelerate healing.
PanAway essential oil blend is made up of these four oils:
Helichrysum-Provides anesthetic and analgesic properties. Wintergreen-Supports reduction of inflammation. Clove-Used in the dental industry to numb. Peppermint-Has powerful pain-blocking properties.
Here are some ways you can use PanAway:
1.) Rub diluted PanAway to help muscles relax and repair. Dilute this blend with a carrier oil for broad coverage across the muscle in pain. PanAway can also be applied to the abdomen to ease menstrual cramps.
2.) Apply diluted PanAway to reduce inflammation and bruising. Take care not to apply to broken skin.
3.) For sciatic pain, apply 2-3 drops of PanAway essential oil blend directly to the base of the spine.
4.) Apply PanAway essential oil directly to your temples, forehead and the back of the neck to relieve a headache.
5.) Apply PanAway to reduce the pain and inflammation associated with arthritis.
6.) Apply PanAway diluted with a carrier oil to growing pains in children and teenagers
I keep a roller bottle of PanAway in my purse, always handy for the bumps, aches, and pains of everyday life. Just the other day, I had a headache and so I applied some PanAway. Within 5 minutes it was gone! It’s good stuff.
