Pain can come in the form of a headache, aching muscles, backaches, and many more. Chronic pain can make everyday life very difficult and uncomfortable.

There are also dozens of over–the-counter pain relievers, but almost every single one has some kind of side effect including bleeding in the stomach and concerns about overdose. Why bother with those chemical pain relievers when you can simply turn to natural essential oils instead?
