Essential Oils: Parkinson’s Disease

Essential Oils: Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s Recharge with Aromatherapy

“Essential oil” is basically a new name for an old standby, aromatherapy. There’s plenty of research behind this aromatic trend that shows it helps to alleviate some health conditions and may even help fight cancer. We’ve uncovered some ways essential oils can help with Parkinson’s disease.




Essential oils are believed to have beneficial effects on the mind, body, and spirit. Many essential oils are used to treat specific ailments or complaints. 

Like herbs and minerals, the FDA does not regulate essential oils. Most medical doctors don’t consider them a valid treatment for what ails you, but those who use them are believers. But check with your doctor first. If you have allergies or anaphylaxis, you’ll probably want to avoid most essential oils. By and large, though, they’re worth a try.

Below is a list of essential oils that might help to ease symptoms of various conditions.

Massage Today suggest these uses of essential oils:

    Regarding essential oils. A list was given for different maladies. It is not clear if the lists are in combination for each problem or choose any one of them. Can this please be clarified?

    I am a doTERRA consultant. However, I don’t care who you buys the oils from as I have seen a lot of people give feedback from using the essential oils. It’s definitely a route to try. I recently have personal experience with getting my mum off painkillers using doTERRA oils … it took a while as she 1. didn’t believe it 2. was suffering with frustration and anger due the recent operations, the mental impact of morphine and drugs and the sudden lack of freedom due to spine ops and possible cancer looming over her.
