Essential Oils for Truckers and Trucker Health
When Mike Simons was hurt on the job, could a blend of essential oils help relieve muscle soreness and tension -- and assist him to regain full mobility? (1)
Obviously, he would be out of work -- and our livelihood would be threatened -- but for how long?
The Extent of Mike's Injuries
Options for Easing Soreness
Mike's only options for easing his sore muscles were either natural or man-made. For a period of time, he used a prescription drug, but he wanted to get off of that as soon as possible.
We would rather not use pharmaceuticals and drugs because they are manufactured, not natural, and because they almost always have unpleasant side effects.
Our personal dislike of drugs didn't mean that we were ready to try just anything. We've been around long enough to know that there are plenty of folks hawking their wares. (Recall the old Andy Griffith episode entitled "Aunt Bee's Medicine Man.")
Readers of our website, blog and email newsletter know that we ask tough questions. Whatever litmus test we would apply when conducting a product review on our site had to apply in this situation, too. Products we're discussing on this page underwent our own test for substantiation.
Our Personal Introduction
A friend of ours gave us a sample of an essential oil blend to help relieve muscle soreness. She gave us instructions on diluting it in a "carrier oil" and applying on Mike's sore muscles. Truly, this product helped relieve Mike's soreness. We ended up ordering more.
Over a period of the next 6.5 weeks, Vicki kept applying the oil mixture to Mike, who worked step-by-step to regain full mobility. Only at that point was he able to return to driving a truck professionally. That's why we refer to him as a "healed trucker."
We consider that the use of that product was a significant part of Mike's recovery.
After that experience, we began to realize the power of other oils from plants in other ways. We know that other professional truck drivers -- as well as anyone looking for natural means to combat some of life's difficulties -- can benefit from using the "essence" of oils.
An Awakening About the U.S. Healthcare Model
Has it ever occurred to you that there is a "model" of healthcare in nations?
Think this through: If you keep rewarding a specific outcome, you will keep getting what led up to that outcome, right?
In this article from NaturalNews.com, we read:
NaturalNews.com further states:
A lot of money is spent to treat "conditions" that supposedly never clear up or go away. Part of the reason for this is that some folks clearly have an ethical conflict of interest.
Many people who think they have to be on drugs for life for certain conditions could benefit from knowing how to use essential oils for health benefits. Many people who have used oils have experienced renewed health and healing.
What is an Essential Oil?
Essential oils are concentrated liquids extracted from aromatic plants. These natural oils protect plants from insects, environmental conditions, and disease. If you've ever squeezed a lemon or orange peel and seen the liquid that comes out -- that's the essential oil. When grown, harvested, and distilled properly, these oils can have a wide array of uses and tremendous health benefits.(2)
Essential oils have been used throughout time dating back to 4500 BC. From perfumes and aromatherapy to cooking and medicinal purposes, these oils have been used in everyday life for centuries. In modern days, research shows that pure essential oils can provide similar benefits to humans and animals that they give to plants.(2)
Differences in Oils
There are 4 grades of essential oils: A, B, C and Floral Water. If you are going to use an oil on your body, you want to make sure that it is high quality, has no synthetics and contains no adulterating chemicals. Only Grade A oils are pure in therapeutic quality, are usually made from organically grown plants, and are distilled at the proper temperatures.
How Can Truckers Use Them?
There are three basic ways for anyone to use essential oils:
There are dozens of oils available individually or in blends. For the responsible use of each oil, read the complete label on each bottle. Many folks have achieved better health and healing with them.
Our friends at HurtTrucker.com have listed many different kinds of injuries that truckers get on the job. Some injuries are so severe that they require medical treatment and even legal intervention.
We thank God not only for His having created products in nature to assist with Mike's healing but also for the healing that Mike received.
