The sciatic nerve which runs from lower back to the foot responds to pressure with intense pain in the lower back, sometimes with pain in the buttocks and on the outside of the leg. Treatments include bed rest, heat and massage. Mix TWO drops of juniper, mustard, or pepper essential oils with ONE tablespoon of soy or grapeseed oil. Rub gently on the affected area. Wrap up warmly after, dressing warm and keeping the sciatic nerve warm as well.
