I take this capsule to support healthy joint and cartilage function.
I am not a doctor. I do not suggest stopping your medication. I do suggest talking to your doctor. I am simply sharing my experience.
My Favorite Little Oily Capsule
- Fill the Vegetable Capsule with the essential oils. Take as often as needed. There aren't any side effects and your body will discard the oils that it isn't able to process.
- It is very important to only ingest therapeutic grade essential oils.I have only done this and will only do this with Young Living Essential Oils. I do not recommend ingesting any other brand of essential oils.
Copaiba Essential Oil
Copaiba essential oil is a powerful oil that promotes healthy joint and cartilage function. Copaiba works well with a lot of other essential oils and amplifies their effectiveness. This oil contains beta-caryophyllene. This natural chemical is also in marijuana. Marijuana contains up to 35% beta-caryophyllene. Copaiba contains up to 55%.

Frankincense essential oil improves concentration, promotes restful sleeps, uplifts mood, and supports the immune system.
Idaho Balsam Fir Essential Oil

This is the easiest paragraph I have ever written for this website. There are ZERO side effects from this magic pill!
That’s right! No bloating, constipation, headaches, muscle spams, loss of sleep, dizziness, sweating, nausea….none of it! Believe me, I have tried just about every pain reliever out there (over the counter and prescription). I understand and remember the side effects. This pill has zero side effects. Well…..aside from inducing relaxation!
A Note About Ingesting Essential Oils
There are 3 traditional models of therapeutic treatment using essential oils: English, French, and German. The English model dilutes essential oils in carrier oils and applies topically to the body. The French model uses neat (undiluted) topical application of therapeutic-grade oils as well as the ingestion of oils. The German model focuses on inhalation (aromatherapy) of the oils. Together, the three models show the versatility and power of essential oils. (Adapted from The Essential Oils Pocket Reference).
The only brand of essential oils I ever have and ever will ingest is Young Living Essential Oils. It’s important to note that not all essential oils are safe to ingest. For Young Living essential oils (in the USA only since this is FDA label requirements), if the back of the bottle has dietary supplement facts on the label, then it is certified as GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe by the FDA).
As with any treatment, use your body as your guide.
If you are not comfortable with ingesting essential oils, you may use this recipe topically either neat or diluted with your carrier oil of choice.
How Often Can I Take It?
I take about 3-4 a week when I feel problems creeping in. I have talked to people that take 2-3 a day (as close as 15 minutes apart) when the issues are more severe. Your body will use the oils it is able to process and discard the rest. I start to feel the pill working in about 15 minutes.
It is best to take the capsules when you make them and not store the oils in the capsules for a long period of time (the oils can eat at the capsule and may leak). However, I often will make one and put it in my purse for emergencies. I usually take it within a couple days. I have also made a handful of these to take on a week long vacation so they are available when needed. It’s not ideal, but I have done it when necessary.
