Joint pain is a common health issue, which can be a result of injuries in the bones, ligaments, and cartilage around the joints.

This pain is often accompanied by swelling, tenderness in the area, weakness, redness, warmth, limping, and loss of range of motion of the joint. Over time, it can become unbearable and too intense, so people often take commercial medicines and creams to relieve it.

Yet, the best way to treat is to try the following natural remedy, which is a simple but effective way to get rid of all the symptoms of joint pain.

Its ingredients might already be in your kitchen, and they are all natural and beneficial.

Lemons are fruits high in vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, B6, C, B1, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, pectin, but their peels are the richest sources of these nutrients.

The lemon peel has powerful antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which soothe pain and support the health of the blood vessels. Therefore, it is extremely useful in the case of joint pain.

There are two ways in which you can use their properties to relieve joint pain.

This is the first one: Peel the lemon, put the peels in a glass jar, and pour some extra virgin olive oil to cover them completely. Add several eucalyptus leaves, close the jar, and leave the jar thus for 2 weeks.

Afterwards, just dip gauze in the mixture and place it over the painful area,  and cover it with a bandage. Repeat this every night before going to bed.

Another, even simpler way, is to just grate the yellow part of the lemon peel and put it on the painful areas. Secure with a bandage, and leave to act for several hours.

You will be amazed by the effects of the lemon peel after the first use!
