Essential Oil Blends: PanAway®

Muscle-pain

PanAway® essential oil blend is a powerful blend of 100 % pure Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens), Helichrysum (Helichrysum italicum), Clove (Syzgium aromaticum), and Peppermint (Menthe piperita) essential oils.

PanAway® “reduces pain and inflammation, increases circulation, and accelerates healing. It relieves swelling and discomfort from arthritis, sprains, muscle spasms, cramps, bumps, and bruises.”1

We recently put PanAway® to the test immediately following an accident involving yours truly dropping (from a significant height) a heavy crystal vase onto the top of my husband’s foot. After he danced around the room with the pain, we immediately applied 3 drops PanAway® blend in about 1/4 teaspoon sweet almond oil to the area of impact, and put his sock back on, followed by applying undiluted Copaiba essential oil 30 minutes after. His foot stopped hurting within the hour and there was virtually no bruise except two tiny marks from the bevelled glass.

HOW PanAway® WORKS:

PanAway® blend contains Helichrysum (pictured above), one of the most effective essential oils for blocking pain.

helichrysum

“For those familiar with herbal medicine, Helichrysum is to Aromatherapy as Arnica is to Herbalism. Put simply, Helichrysum is a must have for traumas and first aid, swelling and scars.”2  “Helichrysum is a powerful anesthetic and analgesic and reduces pain from inflammation and muscle spasms.”3

Helichrysum contains Neryl Acetate and di-ketones. These compounds are highly regarded for their exceptional regenerative and soothing properties.

The chemical profile of Helichrysum includes high levels of:

•   Neryl Acetate (over 40%), which nourishes tight muscles and may serve to “unlock” old injuries by bringing circulation and blood flow back into the region.

•   Alpha-, beta-, and gamma-curcumenes, which normalize inflammation.

•   Di-ketones, which possess superb ability to promote healthy regeneration of new cells and tissue. 4

You may have also heard of Helichrysum by its common names; Everlasting or Immortelle. It has been studied in Europe for its enormous ability to promote healthy cell regeneration and normalize inflammation. Helichrysum is a key ingredient in expensive French beauty preparations such as L’Occitane en Provence‘s”Crème Divine” and “Skin Renewal System“, due to it’s chemical composition which supports daily rejuvenation and nourishment of cellular activity.

Of the more than 500 different species of Helichrysum, the only one used therapeutically in medical aromatherapy is Helichrysum italicum.

PanAway® essential oil blend contains Helichrysum italicum, as well as wintergreen, clove, and peppermint, all essential oils with unique pain relieving properties. Wintergreen “has strong anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic [i.e. prevents or relieves cramping] properties. It is analgesic and reduces all types of pain.”5  Clove oil is used in dentistry to numb gums and kill pain. It is one of the most antimicrobial and antiseptic essential oils. Peppermint essential oil has powerful pain-blocking, anti-inflammatory, and antispasmodic [i.e. prevents or relieves cramping] properties.

“A recent study conducted at the South African Tshwane University in Pretoria found that the main constituent of peppermint, menthol, not only is a highly effective skin penetrator but has analgesic effects (Kamatou GP, et al. 2013).”6

HOW TO APPLY PanAway® essential oil blend, including cautionary notes:

As the oils in PanAway® may cause skin sensitivity in some people, always Dilute PanAway® essential oil blend 1:1 in a carrier oil before applying to skin. (Carrier oils include coconut oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, olive oil…) Test a diluted drop on your inner arm first, before applying to other sites on the body. Never use PanAway® essential oil blend on mucous membranes or genitalia.

Apply 1-2 drops diluted on location of pain or inflammation, or on temples, back of neck, or forehead. Keep away from eyes. If you accidentally get a strong oil like Peppermint or Wintergreen in your eye, do not use water to flush it out, but rather, use a carrier oil such as coconut oil to retrieve the essential oil.

Use as a compress, or for a ‘Raindrop Technique-style’ massage along the spine.

Blending PanAway® with other single essential oils:

As PanAway® relieves deep tissue pain, additional pure Helichrysum essential oil may be added to enhance the effect of PanAway®. When the pain is bone-related, you may choose to add more pure Wintergreen essential oil.
