Natural Fast Relief for Hip and Sciatica Pain is Finally Here.

Natural Fast Relief for Hip and Sciatica Pain is Finally Here. If you’ve ever suffered from hip or sciatica pain, you know that once it shows up, it’s a hard pain to tame. Every step hurts and even sleeping is painful. They say that relaxation is the number one way to overcome and get rid of pain. But how can you relax when you’re in so much pain? Tricky question, but I’ve got a real solution for you that’s natural, and works faster than you may belief. 

The first thing you want to do is to get in the most relaxing situation you can. Think beyond the pain and think about what relaxes you. Hot tubs? Baths? Saunas? Shoulder massage? Happy movies? Beautiful music? Next, eliminate stressors from your schedule for the next few days. Give yourself time and room to release the pain. Start there because a stressed mind, determined to solve a seemingly impossible problem will only stress the body further.

Once you’ve created a more relaxing environment for yourself, it’s time to get proactive.

Since sciatica may actually become worse with touch therapies, one way to effectively ease the pain is through the use of essential oils. This can be done through aromatherapy or by applying a mixture of essential oils with a carrier, such as almond, olive or jojoba oil to the painful area. Essential oils can also be used in a hot compress applied to the painful area.

Some oils that are commonly recommended, include:
German Chamomile - German chamomile is a powerful anti-inflammatory. It also helps to stimulate the production of red blood cells. In addition to being known for its sedative properties, German chamomile also acts as an anti-spasmatic and analgesic (pain reliever).
Cypress Oil – Cypress oil comes from the leaves (needles) and cones of the Mediterranean Cypress trees of Europe. It is used for stimulating blood circulation and is a powerful astringent. Like German chamomile and sweet marjoram it is also an anti-spasmatic and often used to relieve the cramps, sprains and strains of athletic injuries as well as the pain of rheumatoid arthritis.
Eucalyptus– In addition to its uses as a decongestant and germicide, eucaplytus is an effective analgesic. It also has been found to have a stimulating effect on the mind. Simply

(At Eurospa, we know our oils well and our favorite is Eucalyptus! We've even developed a whole product line based on it's power to heal.)

You can keep it simple by creating a spray from essential oils or by using Eurospa's Eucalyptus Oil Shower Spray  in the steam of your shower, steam room or sauna. Steam is a great way to absorb the oils as it penetrates the pores and can travel internally via the respiratory system. 
Adding essential oils to your self care is a great way to support your body in it's own healing. At Eurospa, we're happy to be a part of the journey!

Here’s the Secret to Naturally Healthy, Vibrant Hair!

Here’s the Secret to Naturally Healthy, Vibrant Hair!Whether you’ve suffered a bad cut or are just ready to have more flowing locks, it’s common to want long healthy hair as fast as possible! While there are no guaranteed paths to hair perfection, there are some tried and true home remedies that help move the job along. Keep in mind that if your hair is breaking, thinning or growing slower than average, other factors may be contributing to the process such as the weather, your age, what foods you eat, living habits and general overall health.
That being said, there are still many natural ways to hurry along hair growth that are easy and great for your health!

Use a mask: A lot of people believe that this tip concerning how to make your hair grow faster doesn't work well, but egg whites have been known for their healing properties and their ability to replenish hair and restore its softness and shine! Just crack open a few eggs, strain out the yolks, and make an egg white mask for your hair. Your hair will look ten times healthier instantly and will feel a lot stronger as well -- which, ultimately, will allow your hair to grow faster!

Eat and drink well: Eat a diet high in Omega 3, 6 and 9 nutrients for not only healthy hair but also for better brain function, healthy bones and ligaments. This means your joints, your mind, teeth and nails benefit too! Find omegas in flax seed, salmon and in supplement form at any natural grocer. Water helps the body to process and flush out toxins faster, which makes it a quick and easy natural method that will make your hair grow a lot faster. If you drink about 8 cups of water a day, not only will your body feel better, but your hair will get stronger. The stronger the hair, the faster that it grows. Drinking water also keeps your hair hydrated from the inside out. Hydrated hair is happy hair because, when dry, your hair is much more likely to break.

Stay away from heat! Try to stay away from blow dryers and heated tools, as they burn the hair. If you MUST use them, be sure to use a heat protecting spray or cream first, before styling. Keep in mind that the sun damages hair as well. In warm weather, or intense sunlight (even in the snow) keep a hat on to protect your hair from over drying and burning. Like pulling it back? Spend the next 2 months with your hair tied back to give it a damage break!

Boost circulation: Get into a sauna, steam room or even your shower, one to two times a week and spray eucalyptus oil shower spray near your head, about arms length away; never onto the head directly. The circulation promoting plant oils will penetrate through your open pores, waking up the follicles. Add to this a gentle scalp massage and you'll have one happy head!

Of course, in addition to all this, be sure to get your hair trimmed regularly so it has a chance to grow and be healthy without putting its energy into dead pieces. And of course, use only the best products along the way, including the use of essential oils. 

Eurospa is dedicated to your health inside and out. And health is definitely beautiful! We specialize in Eucalyptus products for both home spa and commercial use. Contact us today to see what we can do for you!
