How to Blend Turmeric Oil with 3 Other Essential Oils for Joint Pain for Natural Relief! Turmeric is one of my favorite essential oils for joint pain. It calms inflammation and relieves pain so well!

This is an essential oil stiff neck rub that I created for Aromahead’s YouTube channel. It’s been very popular there and gotten a lot of positive feedback, so I’m sharing it for you here on our blog, too. […]
