It can relieve the pain of strains, sprains, and contusions.   It is a great oil to use in massage blends for tired or sore muscles, as it stimulates circulation and causes the muscles to release excess lactic acid and other by-products.

It is also helpful when diffused, to relieve coughing, open breathing passages, and dissolve congestion in lungs and bronchial tubes.
