If I said natural remedies for plantar fasciitis like essential oils got a raw deal, untrusted, smeared and are generally shunned by the medical community wouldn’t you agree?
But in actual fact,
Some natural remedies, like essential oils, have been an incredibly popular remedy for plantar fascitiis and heel pain for a very long time.
Whether you have plantar fasciitis, general heel pain, achilles tendinitis, or something else. Essential oils should at the very least be considered as a healthy and natural alternative to over the counter medications.
Essential Oils, an Organic Remedy for Plantar Fasciitis
About 58% of the population experiencing pain have resorted to oral medications for pain relief. And there is no doubt it is the most effectively acclaimed form of medication.
But the thing is,
Medications are synthetically made and have been known to have a detrimental effect on your body in the long term. You may not feel any of it today and you may even enjoy the effects of some of the stronger analgesics, but continuous usage can put you in danger.
Essential oils, extracted from natural and organic sources are slowly but surely becoming a mainstream alternative for pain management. Some claim to give instant pain relief while others need a seeping period before you see the full pain relieving effect. You may also have to use it consecutively for a few days to feel any heel pain relief at all.

The warm sensations stimulate optimal blood flow and circulation which then helps reduce inflammation and hasten the ability for your body to repair the damage, reducing recovery and healing time of your plantar fasciitis.
Reapplication throughout the day may be required for continuous pain relief. (Use as directed)
Putting a good compression sock on after application can amplify and prolong any soothing effects.
