There are many causes of lower back pain, with the most common causes being:
lack of exercise
over use of drugs or alcohol
These home remedies for lower back tension, work as well as any painkiller, and equally as fast, but with no dangerous side effects. Whatever the cause, there are two main types of lower back tension:
A. Lower back that feels tight, warm, or inflamed, and needs to become relaxed, cooled, and calmed.
10 drops Chamomile Essential Oil
10 drops Frankincense Essential Oil
10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
B. Lower back that feels tight, cool or lacking in circulation, and needs to become relaxed, warmed, and gain an increase in circulation.
10 drops Geranium Essential Oil
10 drops Lemongrass Essential Oil

Drop the Essential Oil drops, into the Pumpkin Seed Carrier Oil. Shake before use.
Or, drop the Essential Oil drops into the Shea Body Butter, then stir thoroughly, for several minutes, using a knife.
Apply to affected area, but spread well beyond the tense muscle. For example, if you have a sore spot on your lower back, apply to entire lower back areas.
Home Remedies For Lower Back Ache
A. If you do not wish to make your own lower back muscle tension cream, use our ready-made muscle tension creams, for muscles that feel tight, warm, or inflamed, and need to become relaxed, cooled, and calmed:
Ingredients: Lavender Essential Oil (Lavandula officinalis, extracted from Lavender flowers), whipped into a hydrogenated, creamy Soy Body Butter. No Preservatives.
Lavender Oil is the strongest essential oil painkiller found in nature.
Ingredients: Chamomile Essential Oil (Anthemis nobilis, extracted from Chamomile flowers), and Tansy Essential Oil (Tanacetum annum, extracted from Tansy flowers), whipped into a creamy Vegetable Body Butter (hydrogenated). No Preservatives.
Extremely anti-inflammatory cream – due to azulene, from Chamomile flowers, and chamazulene, from Tansy flowers, which makes this Butter naturally blue. Chamomile Body Butter calms and soothes muscle tension rapidly, because Essential Oils penetrate every layer of muscle.
B. Devil’s Claw, a natural herbal supplement, has been recently shown to work as well as Ibuprofen, but without the awful side effects associated with Ibuprofen. To benefit from its anti-inflammatory potency, take 1,500 to 2,000 mg twice a day. It must contain a standardized extract of 50 mg of harpagoside.
Devil’s Claw is not for people suffering from ulcers, or for people on blood thinners. If in doubt, speak to your doctor regarding other medical conditions, before starting Devil’s Claw herbal extract for lower back ache, muscle or joint inflammation.
If, however, you experience extreme or sharp pain in the lower back, which radiates or refers downwards into other areas of your body, you could have sciatica, which requires additional remedies to those listed in this article.
