Essential Oils 101: PanAway for Pain and Inflammation

Essential Oils 101: PanAway for Pain and Inflammation | OUR NOURISHING ROOTS

I am, yet again, amazed by the power unlocked within a bottle of essential oils.  And this time it’s got a little bit of danger, because PanAway is the only one of the Basic Ten Oils that comes with a protective cap.  Are you intrigued yet?  Let’s find out what this baby can do…

The Power of PanAway

Essential oils are so powerful!  And today’s blend is no exception.  PanAway was another eyebrow-raising experience when I used it initially.

TMI warning!  I used a dab of the oil, which comes with a child-proof cap which interested me, slightly diluted with some coconut oil.  I applied it to a painful, red pimple that was full of pressure but wasn’t ready to pop.  PanAway took the inflammation and pain away within one hour.  I was genuinely surprised.

I know I shouldn’t have been, but I was.  But not for long.  I’m starting to simply believe in the healing power of essential oils, because I see the evidence every time I use a new one and have an experience like this.

My Other “Ah-ha!” Moments with Healing Essential Oils

This isn’t the first time I have been blown away by the power of essential oils.  The first time was with Deep Relief roll-on essential oil blend for a headache.  It worked far better than any other headache medicine I have taken before.  You can read about it HERE.

And then I used Peace and Calming for an allergic reaction I was having.  It stopped my symptoms within minutes, and that really surprised me as well.  You can read about it HERE.

Plus, essential oils are just plain helpful, like when you have a bottle of Purification on hand to help disinfect the air, or a cut, or just to add to your laundry.  You can read about it HERE.

Essential Oils 101: The Basic Ten

When I started with my essential oils, I went straight for the premium starter kit, because it’s the best value I have found.  It comes with a beautiful diffuser that you can use day or night, because it shuts off automatically after 4 hours and has an optional light.  The premium starter kit also includes the basic ten everyday essential oils:

PanAway Essential Oil

When you blend essential oils together, the whole is truly greater than the sum of it’s parts.  The possibilities are endless, and you are left with a true appreciation of the commanding potency of essential oils.

PanAway essential oil blend:

…reduces pain and inflammation, increases circulation, and accelerates healing.  It relieves swelling and discomfort from arthritis, sprains, muscle spasms and cramps, bumps, and bruises. (source)

PanAway contains: wintergreen, helichrysum, clove, and peppermint.

As you can see, even within only about 15 minutes, PanAway can make your life a lot easier.  This sucker was painful, and once I put PanAway on it, the swelling and pain were subsiding in minutes.  I need to start following my own advice and taking it with me everywhere I go!

Three Ways to Use Essential Oils:

  1. Aromatherapy: you can use a diffuser, a cotton ball or cloth with a few drops absorbed into them, or even just waft the bottle under your nose.
  2. Topical Application: this is achieved by applying the oil with a roll-on attachment, dabbing with a finger onto an affected area or a pressure point, and sometimes, with certain oils, diluting with a carrier oil to use the right amount.
  3. Internal Use: you can put essential oils into empty capsules and swallow them, or put them in your tea or a small amount of water and drink them.  I can only speak for the Young Living brand of essential oils, since they are therapeutic-grade and 100% pure!  Other brands do not apply here!

7 Everyday Uses for PanAway:

  1. Lower Back Pain: dilute several drops in coconut oil or another carrier oil and apply to lower back to soothe away pain
  2. Massage: dilute several drops in coconut oil or another carrier oil and massage muscles into serenity!
  3. Tension headaches: use 1 drop rubbed into the tense part of a headache, either behind the ears, at the base of the skull, on the forehead, or the temples
  4. First Aid Kit: keep in your first aid kit alongside bandages to soothe swelling, pain, and inflammation
  5. Carry Along: keep this oil in a carrying case in your purse or bag, and never leave home without it; use away from home to keep unexpected injuries from bruising and swelling
  6. Growing Pains: dilute heavily and massage into children’s legs to help alleviate these mysterious growing pains
  7. Home spa: add several drops to your epsom salt or magnesium flakes as you take a hot bath, and let PanAway relax your muscles slowly with the hot water

Remember: PanAway is a part of the Premium Starter Kit

Ever since I got my Premium Starter Kit I have been freaking out over how much I love my essential oils!  There is an oil for everything, and even though I already loved essential oils, the kit has been instrumental in helping me use the oils much more efficiently and thoroughly.  Even after a few weeks of using them, I found that I felt more confident in treating skin problems, sickness, various digestive ailments, and cleaning (laundry, disinfecting, homemade all-purpose cleaners, etc.)

The Premium Starter Kit includes:

  • Ten 5 mL bottles of essential oils including: Lavender, Peppermint, Lemon, Frankincense, PanAway, Peace & Calming, Thieves, Purification, Valor and Joy.
  • A home diffuser (retail value alone on this one is $96)
  • mL bottle of Stress Away
  • Aroma Glide roller fitment (to turn any oil into a roll on)
  • Two sample packets each of Lavender, Peppermint, Peace & Calming, Lemon, and Thieves (for you to share with your friends)
  • Two NingXia Red 2-ozsamples (this is a great supplement for energy)

  1. I love essential oils and use them daily. That being said, I want to mention that wintergreen, aka: methl salicylate is in the aspirin family. Since we are advised to avoid aspirin products in children, you might want to ask a doctor or pharmacist before using Panaway oil on little ones. I have aspirin allergy but I didn’t realize the wintergreen connection until walking into a room where my father was rubbing wintergreen alcohol (the green stuff) on his feet and ankles. I started having an anaphylactic reaction right away, much faster and more painful than taking aspirin had ever caused. I didn’t make the connection at first but the second time it happened I did some research. I hope this bit of info prevents anyone else from making the same mistake.

  2. Judy Wilson says:

    I would like to order some oils, how do I go about doing that?

  3. It’s not a child safety cap. It is a bigger cap, because it has Wintergreen in it. It’s a blood thinner. Hence, if your on medicine for blood or whatnot. You’re advised not to use it.

  4. I have been using Panaway without diluting with coconut oil. I assumed since it had many oils in it, and the special cap that it would say to use with a carrier oil.
    That should be emphasized and educated to anyone using it.
