I was just wondering if any type of aromatherapy products could help with Fibromyalgia? I know there is no medical cure, but there are herbs I believe that can help ease the symptoms. Anything to help with sleeping? Feelings of peacefulness/ relax? Any help you can recommend at all would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Floral essential oils for calming
by: Cristl Arndt

Hi Cricket,

The floral essential oils are the safest to use for your condition. I recommend any of the following for calming nerves and alleviating emotional distress: High altitude Lavender (Lavandula offincinalis), Neroli (Citrus aurantium var. amara), Rose Attar (Rosa damascena), and Ylang Ylang Complete (Cananga odorata). These oils can be diffused as a single note or in any combination you find is pleasing. I recommend diffusing with an "Aromastone" next to your bed at night, because the oils are lightly warmed (not heated or burned) so they retain their therapeutic quality. You can also bathe with them before bed time to help you sleep. Fill the tub before adding the oils so they don?t evaporate away, and soak for 20 minutes.

The recommended daily doses for each oil: Lavender up to 10 drops, neroli 1-3 drops, rose 1-4 drops, and ylang ylang 2-5 drops. I recommend that you use no more than 5-6 drops total at any given time because the aroma can be overpowering.

Best Wishes,
Cristl Arndt, RA
