Tennis elbow (epicondylitis) is an injury to the tendons that connect the humerus bone near the elbow to the muscles that pull the hand backwards (lateral) and forward (medial) at the wrist. This type of injury is often associated with the repetitive forehand and backhand motions of playing tennis but can be caused by other activities that stress these tendons as well.

Recommendation:

Soothing Blend, Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Helichrysum
Massage gently around elbow joint; then apply ice pack.

Simple Solutions:

Combine 3 drops eucalyptus, 3 drops peppermint, and 3 drops rosemary with 1 tsp. (5 ml) fractionated coconut oil in a small roll-on bottle. Apply on location, and then apply an ice pack on top.
