Best Herbs for Pain Relief

Find out which herbs from your garden could help relieve pain!

Chronic pain, especially in the joints and muscles, tend to come in combination with aging and overuse. Everyday pain can be almost a silent condition because many people simply learn to expect it and deal with it on a regular basis. However, there are common herbs that can be grown in your own garden or purchased economically, that can assist greatly in relieving this pain and below we become acquainted with just a few.

Arnica

Arnica is pretty well-known in the herbal community as an herb everyone should have in their arsenal. It is one of the most effective healing herbs and great for pain relief. It is often used for knee pain, arthritic pain, and after-surgery carpel tunnel syndrome pain. You can make your own Arnica paste, but it also comes packaged in creams and tablets for convenience.

Fennel

Fennel, which grows easily most anywhere in any climate, is another great pain relieving herb. What is wonderful about fennel is that most people find it to be delicious, so you can easily incorporate this licorice-like herb into your cooking and salads. Fennel seeds are packed with 16 analgesic and 27 antispasmodic chemicals. Fennel can be used for pain in many different ways; as a tea, in your soups, salads, and stews, or right off its branches. Though fennel is highly effective for menstrual pain, if you’re pregnant avoid it all together due to its strong estrogenic effects.

Oregano

Another very common herb that is easily grown indoors and outdoors, Oregano is on the list of the best herbal pain relievers. Oregano is equipped with 32 anti-inflammatory agents. You can gain its benefits by sprinkling it on your food, cooking it in your red sauces and broths, and as a seasoning for your casserole dishes. You can also make a tea with oregano, rosemary, and thyme. These three herbs all have analgesic, antispasmodic, and anti-inflammatory agents and combine well together in foods and brews.

Your garden, whether outdoors and large, or on your windowsill, can offer a plethora of healing and pain relieving solutions. These natural solutions are healthy and many are delicious. Try them out in a few different ways to see how you personally like to use them. Remember, teas, soups, stews, salads, or raw, do your own research on each herb to see how they can safely be ingested and used.
