Study Description: The purpose of this study is to determine if an essential oil blend will slow down pain signals sent to the brain. Pain signals are sent to the brain by messengers called neurotransmitters. One neurotransmitter is named substance P. We want to determine an essential oil blend decreases substance P when the skin is warmed. Findings from this study may help us reduce pain signal transmission in people with chronic pain.
