Jaw care can range from the occasional sore joint, to managing discomfort from braces, relaxing yourself and your jaw to reduce or eliminate teeth grinding, and external massages to relax muscles and tendons in the jaw.
You may also find yourself trying to soothe a teething baby by applying Essential Oils to the jaw.
Some great baby-and-adult-friendly options include applying Essential Oils externally along the jaw line and gently massaging. Consider one of the following: Lavender Pre-diluted Roller, Frankincense Essential Oil, or diluted Roman Chamomile Essential Oil.
For older children or adults here are some good Essential Oil options: Ice Blue Soothing Blend Pre-diluted Roller, or Marjoram, Tea Tree, Wintergreen, Eucalyptus, or Siberian Fir Essential Oils applied topically to the jawline and cheeks where there is discomfort.
If you are needing relief and support for areas that are located inside the mouth, older children and adults have the option to apply these oils to the area of concern. For this option, consider the following Essential Oils: On Guard Protective Blend, or diluted Clove or Peppermint Essential Oil. Just apply topically to areas of concern.
For tense moments or times where your jaw would benefit from stress relief, consider pulling out your diffuser! There are lots of great options to help support stress relief, such as: Balance Grounding Blend, Lavender Peace Restful Blend, Citrus Bliss Invigorating Blend, or Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Vetiver, Lavender, or Roman Chamomile Essential Oils.
To help reduce tension, apply the oils mentioned to the back of your neck or outside of your jaw. Doing an external massage of the jaw line is also beneficial to promote relaxation. The Aromatouch Massage Blend would be an excellent choice!
