Muscles and Joints Need Some love.
Pain makes us uncomfortable in our bodies and emotionally unhappy—no fun! It can make simply going about our day unpleasant, and stops us from getting things done.
Tendonitis is a form of inflammation in the tendons, which are the chord-like parts of the body that connect muscles to bones. Usually caused by repetitive movements (like exercise or sitting in the same position for many hours), injuries or built-up inflammation over time, tendonitis can cause a lot of pain.
People over 40 years old tend to get tendonitis more than younger people, but really anyone can development symptoms depending on how damaged versus elastic tendons become.
It’s true that as we age, our ligaments, bones and tendons slowly weaken with everyday wear and tear, so we’re more likely to experience things like muscle and joint pain.
Comes down to experiencing inflamed tendons that are more susceptible to stress, strain, movement and tears. Despite what most people assume, this can affect people of all ages, sizes and physical activity levels, not just serious athletes or the elderly.
Signs indicating that you might have tendonitis include:
feeling pains and aches around a specific ligament, joint or muscle
swelling and tenderness
increased pain when moving or exercising
trouble sleeping due to pain.

Fear of emotions
For exhaustion, apply two drops of PanAway with carrier oil to the lower spine.
For fear of emotions, apply to the top of the legs, right below the hips.
You can also diffuse PanAway to help you overcome these emotional hurdles.

Muscle aches can be caused by increased physical activity, stress, nutritional deficiencies, dehydration and hormonal changes.
Almost everybody has likely experienced discomfort in his or her muscles at some point.
Because almost every part of the body has muscle tissue, this type of pain can be felt practically anywhere.
Using essential oils for muscle aches is the most effective natural remedy for fast relief.
Mix peppermint oil, cypress oil together with coconut oil and rubbing them on the sore muscle is highly effective.
Put 3 drops of peppermint, 3 drops of cypress and 1 tsp of coconut oil on the area then cover with hot compress for 1 minute.
