Many essential oils aid in detoxing tissues and pain relief. Mixing a few together enhances their value and potency. For example, blending clove, black pepper, oregano, and peppermint creates a balanced detox and anti-inflammation blend. Once blended, simply add this therapeutic combination to a carrier oil and rub it into swollen or painful areas. Carrier oils are any food-grade oils that absorb easily into the skin. The dilution ratio a person uses varies according to individual needs.
Diluting with a Carrier Oil
Each person’s skin has a different sensitivity level. So, test a little bit of this blend on the skin until the optimum balance with a carrier oil is achieved. Typically twenty percent essential oil (EO) to eighty percent carrier oil is well tolerated. More or less may be used according to a person’s preference. Ameo offers an excellent fractionated coconut oil for deep penetration into the skin and joints. If needed, using a toothpick for measuring one-half drop works well for fine tuning a blend.

After rubbing the EO blend into the skin, also placing a PowerStrip on the area speeds up the detoxification process even more.

Remember to place the PowerStrip above or below a joint (not on a joint or bending may loosen the strip) and rub the actual joint area with the EO blend for a wonderfully synergistic effect.
