Natural Joint Pain Remedies You Can Do At Home
1. Soothe pain with eucalyptus oil
With its cooling effects, eucalyptus oil can help soothe joint pain, and ease sore and strained muscles. You can mix eucalyptus oil with other substances to make your own homemade pain relief rub.
2. Drink grape juice & pectin
Research suggests that pectin, usually found in fruits like pears, apples, plums, and oranges, helps to restore elasticity and lubrication of damaged synovial membranes (the soft tissue in-between the joints). Mixing this with grape juice (an anti-inflammatory) will help to treat your joint pain, so why not give it a try today?
3. Reduce inflammation with bosweilla
