Diabetic neuropathy is nerve pain caused by diabetes – and it can be debilitating. Neuropathy can cause pain, numbness, and tingling – and it affects up to 70% of diabetes sufferers.
Neuropathy may be prevented by controlling the blood glucose levels – keeping them as close to normal as possible. However, in the event that you do experience neuropathic pain, there are some natural blends you can try.

Many diabetes sufferers have had a great response from using a quality vitamin regime on a daily basis.
Cassia, Coriander and Grapefruit are great balancing oils for a person suffering from diabetes.
The chemical compound Linalool is the subject of a pharmaceutical patent because of its ability to “reverse, prevent and manage” diabetes. You can find Linalool in its natural form in our grounding blend and in Basil essential oil.
Diabetes sufferers may also find relief by using our massage blend on the bottoms of the feet, tops of the feet, on the reflexology points of the feet and hands that correspond to the spleen, liver, and lymphatic systems; always massage upwards from the ankle side up and then gently over varicose veins morning and night. If you have also been diagnosed with high blood pressure, mix Lemon oil in your hands with the massage blend to enhance the experience.
The massage blend contains Basil, Grapefruit, Cypress, Lavender, Marjoram, and Peppermint essential oils.
