The warnings against all kinds of inflammation are everywhere.
Your doctor says take medication. Websites say exercise more. Friends or family say to drink more water.
While these suggestions may have good intentions, they’re not going to keep you from the risks chronic inflammation runs.
To avoid pain, depression, arthritis, and even cancer, I’m about to give you the natural elixir you need in your life.
Do you ever wish for one treatment that could fix everything?
Taking medication after medication can get tedious after a while, and even dangerous in some cases.
But what if I told you that the cause for most of your problems is one thing?
“Inflammation” sounds intimidating, but those of us who are familiar can call it like it is: swelling.
While you may be thinking of a twisted ankle or puffy cheeks after a dentist’s appointment, inflammation can occur all throughout your body.
And it can be harmless. Actually, it’s your body’s defense mechanism, but if allowed to go on for too long, inflammation can cause more problems than it fixes.
To name a few, chronic inflammation has been linked to arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, asthma, cancer, and Alzheimer’s.
Those cover some of the most common scares for Americans today.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a head start against these diseases?
I know it sounds too good to be true, but I’ve found a natural ingredient that stands a chance to reduce chronic inflammation, and therefore your risk for these issues.
I’d bet you have the one of the parent plants to this elixir in your garden.
Patchouli oil is derived from flowers like lavender, sage, and mint.
While those things are desirable in of themselves for anxiety relief, cooking, and tea leaves, the advantages of patchouli oil reach even further.
Most importantly, it is known to reduce internal inflammation. Patchouli oil is gifted with antiphlogistic properties (which just means it can soothe the irritated and inflamed).
While internal inflammation is what we’re mostly concerned with, patchouli oil can also reduce external inflammation caused by skin infections.
Experts recommend rubbing a few drops of oil into your hands, feet, stomach, lower back, and anywhere else you feel discomfort.
They really do mean a few drops though; patchouli oil has historically been used as a perfume ingredient and the smell is quite potent in large quantities.
But the good stuff doesn’t stop there.
The other benefits of patchouli oil include, but are not limited to:
- Strengthens hair
- Fights fever
- Acts as an aphrodisiac
- Treats acne, eczema, & aging skin
- Reduces scars
- Cures insomnia
- Can be a natural deodorant
- Non-prescription diuretic (reduces blood pressure & cholesterol!)
- Repels bugs
- Helps metabolism
- Prevents infections
Even if you didn’t want to pick up a bottle to reduce your risk of the most common diseases in the country, you definitely should check out these other upsides.
Nowadays, treating illnesses and pain can be so complicated. Skip the trip to the pharmacy and head to your nearest natural foods store.
This little bottle of elixir will keep you healthy, fragrant, and soothed without breaking the bank.
