Essential oils

It's been awhile but I'm back!  Been dealing with a lot since I've been gone.  I suffer from rheumatoid arthritis as well and recently discovered that the steroids that give me relief from the bone eating pain of RA have caused kidney disease.  Anyway, I was curious if anyone has used essential oils at all to help with any of the symptoms of SM?

I've used essential oils (mainly lavender and peppermint but possibly eucalyptus too) as a roll on applied directly to the source of a lot of my pain (ie shoulders and neck).  I also use pain patches containing similar ingredients, I believe.  If I apply them as tension and stiffness builds up, they can prevent my headaches from developing.  The pain patches seem to be pretty successful in treating a semi-established headache too!
