Treating Fibromyalgia Symptoms with Essential Oils

Fibromyalgia is a syndrome that includes long-term, body wide pain in the muscles and connective tissues.  This characteristic pain may be accompanied by fatigue, headaches, and difficulty with sleep, anxiety, and depression.  Females in the age group 20 to 50 are the most likely to suffer from fibromyalgia.

A definite cause has not yet been identified but research shows that those that suffer might have a difference in the central nervous system that makes them more sensitive to pain.  Some suggest this difference in the CNS could have been as a result of childhood stress or prolonged periods of stress.  Others suggest that physical or emotional trauma may trigger the syndrome.

To be successful when treating symptoms of Fibromylagia with essential oils it is important to be consistent.

Suggested Essential Oil Protocols:

As with many health concerns, fibromyalgia is best helped on multiple levels.  Experiences include help for pain, cleansing, strengthening the immune system, building nutritional balance, and emotional support.  Couple these with the possibility that many have used prescription medication and the transition or addition of essential oils may for fibromyalgia require patience to find a proper balance. 

For immediate pain relief:.


  1. PAIN:  Deep Blue, Wintergreen, Hylichrysum, AromaTouch and other specific oils applied topically to specific points of discomfort.
  2. NUTRITIONAL BALANCE: Experts agree that using nutritional supplements such as DoTERRA Life Long Vitality supplements are a must.  Additionally, eliminate harmful foods and habits.

  3. CELLULAR SUPPORT & HEALING: 8 drops or 1 capsule of DDR Prime 2 times per day. 2 -3 drops of Frankincense 2 - 4 times daily under the tongue or internally with a spoonful of honey or in a capsule.

  4. STRENGTHENING THE IMMUNE SYSTEM:  PB Assist (ProBiotics), designed to support healthy digestive functions and immunities.

  5. LIVER - DoTERRA Zendocrine Detoxification Complex and Zendocrine blend addresses the liver, kidneys, bowels and skin.

  6. GASTROINTESTINAL - The theory that a root cause of autoimmune disorders is Candida is detailed in autoimmune disorders. To address Candida use the GX Assist cleanse. It is recommended that due to sensitivity a person should start this cleanse with 1 GX capsule daily for 2 days, if no skin or digestive reactions increase to 2 capsules for 2 days and then if no reaction, continue to the recommended 3 capsules per day.

  7. EMOTIONAL SUPPORT:  These types of health concerns can take an emotional toll on folks so using essential oils and blends to relieve depression, stress, anger and/or to calm nerves is also very helpful.

Remember to be Consistent. This is the key to success.
