Many diabetics suffer from nerve pain and I’m asked a lot about essential oils for neuropathy. This blend is great for combatting these painful symptoms, and the light massage used to apply this body oil is great for restoring blood flow!
Essential Oils for Neuropathy
In 2010, researchers from Louisiana State University published a study (1) that evaluated how a special blend of essential oils for neuropathy mixed with homeopathic remedies affected plantar cutaneous (foot sole) pain due to peripheral neuropathy.
The homeopathic remedies were St. John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum), Wolfsbane (Aconitum napellus), Club Moss (Lycopodium clavatum), phosphorus, Poison Ivy (Rhus toxicodendron) and Rye ergot (Secale cornutum). And the five essential oils were geranium oil (Pelargonium graveolens), lavender oil (Lavandula angustifolia), bergamot oil (Citrus aurantium), tea tree oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) and eucalyptus oil (Eucalyptus globulus).
Sixty participants randomly received the essential oils for neuropathy natural treatment above or a placebo and 93% of the patients reported pain reduction within 30 minutes of topical application and no adverse reactions were observed!
A Note About Diabetes
The choice of essential oils for neuropathy mentioned in the LSU study can help relieve pain. But it’s important to note that there are many things you can control to help address the root cause of your nerve pain – especially if it’s caused by diabetes.
For example, I highly recommend visiting your local upper cervical chiropractic specialist to address neuropathy and other peripheral nerve conditions. Essential oils for neuropathy and chiropractic care are a great one-two punch against nerve pain issues of all kinds!
But if you aren’t thinking about your diet and other health habits you may be playing whack-a-mole with symptoms.

Here are a few steps you can take to help prevent or manage diabetes:
1. Bioactive Food Diet – We’ve seen people totally turn their health around just by adding nutrient-dense, bioactive foods to their diet instead of the “Standard American Diet”. SAD is definitely the right acronym to describe this typical way of eating.
3. Move Your Body – We recommend High Intensity Interval Training exercises which you can begin at any level of fitness and increase gently as you’re able to challenge your body more and more.
