I have read some claims that local applications or ingestions of lemon eucalyptus oil help treating a tendinitis.
Example from Worwood, Valerie Ann. The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy: Over 600 Natural, Non-toxic & Fragrant Recipes to Create Health• Beauty• A Safe Home Environment. New world library, 2012:
Is there any scientific evidence supporting or infirming the usefulness of local applications or ingestions of lemon eucalyptus oil to treat a tendinitis? I am mostly interested in lateral epicondylopathies of the humerus.
If so, what is the recommended use? (number of applications per day, quantity to use, before/after physical effort, morning/evening, etc.)
