Aromatherapy has many uses. It can promote relaxation, improve mood, and treat a variety of ailments. Among those ailments is pain and inflammation.
Certain essential oils can be great pain relievers. And while modern-day analgesics can help ease pain and inflammation, natural alternatives like essential oils can do the same without the side effects and long-term health consequences.
Using Essential Oils as Pain Killers
First, understand that the title of this recipe (Morphine Bomb Rollerball Recipe) is just something used in the essential oil world. Obviously, essential oils are not a drug replacement for scenarios where morphine is required.
Morphine is a very aggressive drug, and in no way can essential oils usurp the potency of this drug. It’s much-needed for cases where people are in extreme pain (like from many types of surgeries).
That being said, essential oils can help ease many mild and sometimes more chronic forms of pain. And depending on the severity, it can replace most over-the-counter medications. Maybe even some less potent narcotics.
Here are some common ailments people might use essential oils to treat:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Muscle aches
- Pain from general sickness
- Swelling from injuries

- Marjoram: This oil can be effective for a range of issues, including muscle pain, headaches, toothaches, inflammation, colds, and fevers.
