Re: Natural/Holistic Anti-inflammatory and Pain

Lemongrass essential oil. It helps with pain and healing, and is especially good for ligaments. You can mix a couple drops with a bit of olive oil and then apply to the pawpads and it will be absorbed. Just make sure you're getting a quality essential oil. Only purchase when in glass bottles and no dropper tops. Essential oils are strong and will degrade plastic which then contaminates them. Make sure it has the latin name, and if it says what country its from thats a plus. Therapeutic grade essentials can be taken internally, so if it says not to consume its lesser quality. Best oils are the Young living oils but you have to order them. I have some now brand oils that I picked up at a local health store. (also, since oils are not regulated any can place claims such as therapeutic grade on their labels)
