Epsom salt bath (+lavender/peppermint)
Turmeric + piperine in coconut (consume and apply to reduce inflammation – but seek the source ultimately.)
Burdock root (EFAs)
Glucosamine (found in bone broth)
SAMe (butanedisulfonate form!)

Ginger:. healing agent that contains chemicals with analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects on the body. It’s been shown to help lessen pain associated with arthritis, making it a great pain reliever. It provides this relief by acting on vanilloid receptors, which are located on sensory nerve endings.
Turmeric: study out of Japan evaluated its relationship with interleukin (IL)-6, the inflammatory cytokine known to be involved in the RA process, and discovered that curcumin significantly reduced inflammation
Frankincense: can inhibit the production of key inflammatory molecules associated with conditions like arthritis and can be useful in helping to prevent the breakdown of the cartilage tissue. This has been shown to significantly reduce levels of inflammation, making it a natural treatment option for pain-related conditions that affect the muscles, joints and tendons.
Myrrh: study revealed that frankincense and myrrh, especially when used together, help suppress inflammation and the intensity of joint inflammation.
Orange: study published in the European Journal of Medical Research investigated the antioxidant potential of various essential oils, reporting that orange was the most highly effective of those studied. (Apply to skin, or diffuse)
