Arthritis is a debilitating disease characterized by the inflammation of the joints. Patients experience great pains and stiffness and they can even become incapable of moving around and of performing the simplest movements. Arthritis can take many forms and its causes are not yet clear.
Patients must see a physician by all means in order to get an adequate arthritis treatment. This disease is a chronic one, so it doesn't go away completely. One can live with it his or hers entire life and the point of arthritis treatments is to offer relief and to alleviate the symptoms. Besides prescribed drugs for arthritis there are also natural treatments that patients can try. Taking artificial pills for the entire life is not at all a pleasant perspective; this is why many people try natural remedies.
Arthritis treatments based on herbs and essential oils include -
Lavender and rosemary essential oil - They have a strong anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties and they provide relief if massaged on the painful areas.
Mustard oil - 200 grams have to be mixed with 10 grams of camphor and left in a bottle, in direct sunlight, until the camphor dissolves. The mixture should be massaged on the affected area daily.

It doesn’t matter is it is raw or cooked because it has the same properties. During arthritis crises it is also recommended to drink three cups a day of an infusion made of celery seeds.
Ginger - It is one of the arthritis treatments that can be safely used for a prolonged period of time. It has proven its efficiency in offering pain relief both for osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis sufferers. Ginger extract, ginger tea and ginger compresses, they all have a beneficial effect.
