What is Fractionated Coconut Oil?
Fractionated coconut oil is a form of Coconut oil that has had the long-chain fatty acids removed via hydrolysis and steam distillation. This process makes the oil completely liquid at room temperature, and extends the product's shelf life.
Because Fractionated Coconut Oil is colorless and odorless, it is perfect for blending with essential oils as it preserves and maintains their original fragrance and benefits. This carrier oil is ideal for dry or troubled skin and provides a soothing topical barrier without clogging pores

What causes Arthritis or Joint Pain?
Any damage to the joints from disease or injury can interfere with your movement and cause a lot of pain. Many different conditions can lead to painful joints, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, gout, strains, sprains, and other injuries.
Arthritis is a joint disorder with inflammation. The causes of arthritis depend on the form of arthritis. Causes include injury (leading to osteoarthritis), hereditary factors, the effects of infections or a misdirected immune system.
Joint inflammation from arthritis is characterized by joint stiffness, swelling, redness, pain, and warmth. Arthritis can also cause loss of strength as well.
Pain relief is the most immediate and pressing need for arthritis relief. Whilst doctors can prescribe drugs (which likely have side-effects) there are essential oils and herbs that can provide a synergistic effect when combined in a blend such as ours, targeted specifically at arthritis and joint pain.
How is the Arthritis & Joint Pain Relief Oil applied?
Apply the oil 3-4 times per day gently massaging in to the affected area for 4-5 minutes to stimulate the circulation and flow of blood and chi to the damaged area. Continue this regime for at least 2-3 weeks for best results.
There is no cure for arthritis, but this oil can certainly provide relief from the pain and by stimulating the flow of blood and chi around the joints, inhibit further degeneration of the joints. Good management of arthritis means keeping the joints mobile as much as possible (being careful to avoid heavy exercise that can damage cartilage).
If pain from an injury is chronic or the oil does not provide sufficient relief, does not reduce within a week, or you experience continual pain, please see your doctor without delay.
What Essential Oils are in the product?
Our Arthritis and Joint Pain Relief Oil includes 18 traditional Chinese Medicine Herbs heat infused in Fractionated Coconut Oil PLUS a powerful blend of the following 8 Essential Oils:
Ginger is part of the plant family that includes turmeric and cardamom, both exceptionally beneficial to your health and wellness. It has a sweet, spicy, woody and warm scent. Ginger essential oil is a warming essential oil that works as an antiseptic and stimulant.
The main therapeutic benefits come from gingerols, the oily resin from the root that acts as a highly potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. A component of ginger essential oil, called Zingibain, is responsible for the oil’s anti-inflammatory properties. This important component provides pain relief and treats muscle aches, arthritis, migraines and also works as a headache remedy.
Clary Sage is perennial herb native to the northern Mediterranean, along with some areas in North Africa and Central Asia.
Clary sage is an anti-spasmodic and relieves muscle cramps as well as having anti-inflammatory properties. Clary Sage opens the blood vessels and allows for increased blood circulation; it also naturally lowers blood pressure by relaxing the brain and arteries. This boosts the performance of the metabolic system by increasing the amount of oxygen that gets into the muscles and supporting organ function.
Wintergreen is a tree native to North America and it is believed to have been Native Americans who discovered the use of its oil to eliminate pain in the muscles and joints. Wintergreen is readily absorbed through the skin and the presence of methyl salicylate induces numbness and an anesthetic effect on the nerves there. It also increases circulation of the blood and brings warmth to the area which helps to heal the bruising.
Most of its health benefits are from the methyl salicylate which promotes blood circulation, relieves pain from muscle cramps, joint pain, tendonitis and bone pain. It is also extremely popular with the people suffering from rheumatism, arthritis,and gout.
Chilli Seed Oil is from the Chili plant that originated in Mexico but is now grown around the world. Chilli Seed Oil can also be used for a vast array of medical conditions, due to its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Chili peppers are rich in the active ingredient capsaicin, which can have a profound impact on the body.
As a topical pain reliever, few things are better than Chilli Seed Oil, and in fact, capsaicin is popularly used in pharmaceutical analgesics. Capsaicin numbs the location wherever it is applied and block the nerves from carrying the sensation of pain. That is why it is used to relieve joint pain in arthritis.
Black Pepper is the most common and potent flavouring and spice of the peppercorn family. Because of its warming, anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties, black pepper oil works to reduce muscle injuries, tendonitis, and symptoms of arthritis and rheumatism.
Studies have shown Black Pepper has warming properties and when combines with other essential oils such as those in this blend, can significantly improve pain tolerance. Black pepper oil is warming, stimulating and improves circulation, thereby giving immediate relief for rheumatism and arthritis, particularly during the winter when the symptoms are aggravated the most.
Peppermint is a hybrid mint, a cross between watermint and spearmint - the cooling anti-inflammatory properties of this soothing oil will help easy aching muscles and cramps. The antispasmodic properties of peppermint essential oil will help relieve tension and cramps after an intense workout.
The health benefits of peppermint oil as well as peppermint oil uses have been documented back to 1,000 BC and have been found in several Egyptian pyramids. In recent times thousands of scientific studies have verified the health benefits of Peppermint.
Eucalyptus is a native Australian tree. Originally referred to as “eucalyptol” by the scientific community, the health benefits of eucalyptus oil come from a chemical now known as cineole — an organic compound shown to hold widespread medicinal effects, including reducing inflammation and pain.
Although eucalyptus has the highest known cineole levels of any plant (up to 80–95 percent), scientists have discovered that several other plants have significant levels of cineole as well – Ginger, Helichrysum and Peppermint – which are also used in this formulation to create a powerful synergistic pain relieving effect.
Tasmanian Kunzea Ambigua or ‘white kunzea’ is from the myrtle family and was used by Australian Aboriginal communities to relieve irritated skin, muscle tightness and pain. It is the organic composition of Kunzea ambigua essential oil that makes it so unique. Certain compounds in Kunzea give it anti-inflammatory properties that are very rare for an essential oil.
Kunzea Oil is approved by the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) and has been been proven to relieve muscular aches and pains, relieve joint pain and swelling from mild arthritis. Kunzea oil targets sore joints, and the aches and pains caused by arthritis, by being absorbed through the skin to target areas of inflammation. It is there that the active components of the oil trigger the body’s own healing process to relax the muscles, ease the pain and increase mobility.
