    • 4 drops of Black Pepper Essential Oil (Piper nigrum)
    • 3 drops of Spike Lavender Essential Oil (Lavandula latifolia)
    • 3 drops of Clove Bud Essential Oil 
    • 3 drops of Ginger Essential Oil
    • 2 drops of German Chamomile Essential Oil
  • 1 fl oz/30 mL  of Trauma Oil
  • 1 fl oz/30 ml PET plastic flip top bottle


  • Add the essential oils to the flip-top bottle
  • Add the Trauma oil
  • Close the cap and shake gently to completely blend the essential oils into the Trauma oil
  • Massage into the side affected by sciatica including lower back, buttock and down the leg.  
  • Apply to the affected area as needed.

Safety: I recommend a small patch test to ensure there is no skin sensitivity and avoid using on broken skin when using Trauma Oil. Can be used on children over the age of 10.
