What is Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)?
Restless Leg Syndrome is a condition that causes an uncontrollable urge to move your legs. Usually, this shows up when you are resting and can seriously disturb your sleep.
RLS can be tied to:
- Chronic Diseases
- Genetic disposition
There is no medical test for RLS but there are 5 basic criteria for diagnosis:
- An overwhelming urge to move your legs, especially along with uncomfortable or unusual feelings
- Starts or gets worse while you’re at rest
- Goes away, either partly or totally, when you move
- Gets worse in the evening and when you go to bed
- Another condition, such as leg cramps, arthritis, or muscle pains, isn’t causing it
Restless Leg Syndrome Treatment without drugs
There’s no cure for restless legs syndrome itself, but treatments can help control it so you can get a good night’s sleep. I have found that my biggest trigger is alcohol. In my case, a glass of wine is a sure guarantee to cause RLS. Here are some things you can do to alleviate the symptoms without using drugs.
- Regular exercise
- Avoid caffeine, tobacco, and alcohol
- Leg massages
- Hot baths
- Heating and ice packs on your legs
- A leg vibrating pad

I have gone back and forth trying a variety of essential oils to help me with this problem. This is the recipe that works for me but you may have to figure out the ratios that work for you.
10 ml roller bottle:
