Due to the pressure dropping prior to damp weather, the body's tissues swell. This can put pressure on joints and irritate the surrounding nerves. This may result in a dull and lingering pain especially in the neck and shoulders.
Now, I have good news! I tell you how I prepared an aromatic travel pillow for neck and shoulders. The pillow can be pre-heated if necessary. The pillow always helped my aches. When pre-heating, I always place the pillow in the stove – of course only for a few minutes and at 60 Celsius only! Warmth is beneficial but too much heat is not good for inflamed joints!
What you will need
A pair of socks, rice or coarse grain salt (as much as to fill to socks),
15 drops of Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) essential oil.
1. Pour the rice or salt in a bowl. Put the essential oil on the rice or salt and mix well with a glass rod.
2. Fill both socks with the rice/salt and slip them into each other at the ankle part. Don't overfill it!
3. Saw the ankle parts together so the socks are connected.
