PanAway is the next Everyday Collection essential oil that I’m excited to share with you. Nope, it’s not a new airline- that’s always what I think about when I hear the name. 😉 PanAway is an awesome pain relieving essential oil blend that contains these four individual oils:

•Peppermint Essential Oil (Mentha piperita) 
•Wintergreen Essential Oil (Gaultheria procumbens) 
•Helichrysum Essential Oil (Helichrysum italicum)

Working at a computer many hours each day sometimes leaves me with a pretty sore upper and lower back. I love using PanAway either directly or in my homemade pain cream (recipe below) to ease the tension. I used to go to a chiropractor every other week, but since I’ve started using my oils I only go about once per month now. Yay!

I also use PanAway any time that I have jaw pain pop up. It doesn’t not happen very frequently, but when it does I’m so thankful to have a remedy that actually works – when traditional pain killers do not. You can read more about my story with PanAway and jaw pain here.


1. Back Pain: Rub PanAway essential oil blend across your back if you feel discomfort from sitting in front of a computer.
2. Sore Muscles: Rub PanAway essential oil blend on muscles to help alleviate stressed muscles or other physical discomforts.
3. Headaches: Rub PanAway essential oil blend on your temples and forehead to ease head tension.
4. Leg Nerve Pain: Rub two to three drops at base of spine to reduce and relieve sciatic pain.
5. Joint Pain in Pets: For arthritic pets, massage PanAway oil diluted with either vegetable or olive oil on location.
6. Injuries: Apply PanAway oil topically on an injured area to reduce inflammation and bruising.
7. Muscle Cramps: Have a leg cramp? Massage PanAway into the area to ease the pain.
8. Joint Pain: Massage one to two drops over arthritic hands to lessen pain and inflammation.
9. Invigorating Back Massage: Incorporate PanAway into your next massage for an incredible invigorating experience.
10. Growing Pains: Massage PanAway, heavily diluted with a carrier oil (coconut oil will do) into legs to help ease growing pains.


My dad had carpal tunnel in both wrists. He had surgery on one. It was so painful he did not want to go for the other. He has been using PanAway on it whenever he has pain. He is thankful there is something that he can do besides more surgery. He also uses PanAway for arthritis in his knees, feet and shoulder. He is a true believer in the oils.

My daughter injured her knee when she was raking leaves. She thought that she had dislocated the knee and went for physiotherapy with very slow results and she continued to be in pain. I sent her a bottle of PanAway to use and she told me that the pain subsided to almost nothing and she was able to walk again without having to hobble. She credits PanAway for helping her get back to almost normal in a very short period of time.

After a discussion with my doctor earlier this year about the importance of the liver in hormone balance I did quite a bit of research into liver health. During this research one of the things I learned about is the damage that can be caused by pain relievers like ibuprofen and Tylenol. Do a quick Google search on this topic and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

Since that time I’ve done everything I can to stay away from OTC pain relievers. Of course there was still times when I needed some sort of pain relief for sore muscles, a rolled ankle etc., so I was excited  when I was first introduced to PanAway. I now use this easy to make Pain Relief Cream for all sorts of things that I would have previously popped an ibuprofen for. Here is the recipe:

What You’ll Need
1/2 Cup Organic Virgin Coconut Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (this is the brand I use)
10 Drops of PanAway Essential Oil

How to Make It
1. Melt Coconut Oil in a glass bowl
2. Mix in 10 Drops of PanAway
3. Store in a glass jar. For an inexpensive option you can use a glass canning jar.
4. The coconut oil will turn back into a solid state as it cools. If you live in a hot weather area you may need to store it in the fridge in order for it to become “solid” once again.
5. Apply to areas that need pain relief as needed. You will want sure to keep it away from your eyes as it will burn if it gets in them.


You can pay the $42.76 retail price for a 5ml bottle PanAway or you can get a MUCH better deal by getting that same bottle which comes in the  Young Living Essential Oils Premium Starter Kit! This kit not only includes PanAway, but also will give you a diffuser (diffusing is an awesome way to get oils into your system), the 9 other amazing oils that I’m talking about in this series, samples of Ningxia Red, stress away oil + roller, an Essential Oils Guidebook, oil labels and much more!

    Will be trying this as well. If I may also add that a good seat, a chiropractic one if possible will also do the trick. In fact it is one of the relief doctors advise to many people with chronic back pains. It usually due to poor sitting position for a long period of time. Great blog!

    I was just wondering if you’ve tried putting it in something like a lotion bar comes in? I am making some tomorrow and was thinking I would want to take it with me, I live in cold climate so it won’t melt really, but will it slide up?….

    • says

      Do you mean like a deodorant, roll-up kind of bar? I think it might be a little too soft for that. Even the warmth of my hands melt the coconut oil, so I’d just worry about it melting (even a little) and leaking everywhere on you. 😉 If you want something a little more like a stick, using cocoa butter (or something similar) might work. I’m just not sure what the exact proportions would be.

      You could make a salve, which would be more solid, by melting beeswax with coconut oil and add EO after the melting process. Just not sure how much you would need.
