My 81 yr mom has severe arthritis that she cannot walk. I massaged her body with oil consisting of a base of grapefruit oil and added essential oils of lemon grass (kills germs) and rosemary oil (Vitamin C rich).
Lemongrass essential oil is used as aromatherapy to relieve muscle pain, externally to kill bacteria, ward off insects, and reduce body aches, and internally to help your digestive system.
