Omni Oil for Raynaud’s Disease

by | Mar 9, 2019 | Chronic Illness, Raynaud's Disease, Scleroderma | 6 comments

I’m continuing with my Raynaud’s Disease blog posts this month for Raynaud’s Awareness Month today with a review of the circulation-stimulating Omni Oil, a natural solution, for Raynaud’s that I was sent to try by Clinogen Laboratories to review for the work I am doing for Raynaud’s Awareness Month on my blog.

I’m going to start this post with a copy and paste of what Raynaud’s Disease is from my previous posts (I have a whole section for my Raynaud’s posts right here) and then this will follow my review of Omni Ol and my experience with this oil for my Raynaud’s phenomenon.

What is Raynaud’s?

Raynaud’s phenomenon occurs when the extremities of the body, usually the fingers and toes, change colour and become uncomfortable and /or painful. This happens because the microcirculation in the extremities is impaired and due to a narrowing (constriction) of the small blood vessels on exposure to the cold, or to a change in temperature, both in summer and in winter.

Raynaud’s usually develops due to a drop in temperature, and typical symptoms include fingers that go white and feel cold as microcirculation is compromised. The fingers in some cases can then turn blue, purple or black in colour as a result of reduced oxygen in the blood as a result of narrowed or constricted blood vessels.

Once a Raynaud’s attack is over the fingers begin to turn bright red as blood vessels dilate (open) and normal blood flow returns. At this point, sufferers feel tingling, throbbing, numbness and pain and this can be severe in many cases.   

At the moment, recommended management is to keep warm and manage the condition with lifestyle changes (my Top 10 Tips for Managing Raynaud’s can be found right here). There are certain medications available which work by dilating the blood vessels, however, the list of possible side-effects often deters patients (I personally take nifedipine, but of course would rather not!).

What is Omni Ol?

It is, therefore, such a blessing that there are medical professionals seeking to develop natural alternatives. As a result, Scientists at Clinogen Medical have developed Omni Ol which has successfully been used for neuropathy in diabetic patients and is extremely effective in treating symptoms experienced by Raynaud’s patients.

Omni Ol is based on plant-based natural oils designed to reduce symptoms associated with Raynaud’s Disease. The balm helps to stimulate circulation and reduce inflammation and is particularly suited to muscular pain, joint pain, and injuries. The oil is based on a combination of Western Science and Eastern Ayurvedic principles and works by harnessing the healing power of stem cells mainly derived from the rainforest plants. It also includes the well-renowned Ginkgo Biloba that I take as a supplement for Raynaud’s.

Full ingredients are as follows: Paraffinum Liquidum, Limnanthes Alba, Lavandula Angustifolia, Cinnamomum Zeylanicum, Rosmarinus Officinalis, Salvia Officinalis, Eugenia Caryophyllata, Apium Graveolens, Trigonella Foenum Graecum, Centella Asiatica, Ginkgo Biloba, Uncaria Tomentosa, Citrus Medica Limonum, Passiflora Incarnata

How To Use Omni Oil

I had a lovely afternoon tea just last weekend at Rhinefield House and I thought this would be the perfect time to try out my Omni Ol as I really didn’t want to miss out on a lovely walk around the stunning grounds with my family. As you can see in the above photos, after just a few minutes outside I was starting to develop Raynaud’s.

The idea with Omni Ol is that when an attack begins that you should massage a few drops of the oil gently in circular motions into the affected area and it will then work to restore normal circulation within a few minutes.

Does Omni Ol Work?

In order to test if it works, as soon as I returned from being outside, I immediately sat down and took photos on my phone to see how effective the oil would be. These photos contain no editing at all. It took me about 3 minutes from applying the oil in the above photos to the next photo you will see. You can already see one solitary finger has circulation again!

Photo 2: About 2 minutes after the above photo showing circulation already returning to my fingers
Photo 3: Just a minute after photo 2 the circulation has now come back to all fingers just leaving one tip white.
Photo 4: The circulation has returned to all fingers!

I don’t know about you but I find looking at the photos above quite mindblowing and also quite emotional as someone who has suffered so deeply with Raynaud’s for most of my life. I really had no idea what to expect when I heard about Omni oil and that it could help with Raynaud’s. It just seemed unimaginable. But in this case, the photos truly do speak for themselves! What you can see above are a mere 15 minutes for my hands to go from a Raynaud’s attack to a normal state.

As soon I massaged Omni Ol into my hands I could feel them feeling getting warmer but without the excruciating thawing pain that I normally suffer from. My hands felt relaxed and normal within the time show above and I’m honestly speechless. It also has a truly lovely warming scent with all the lucious spices.

I am so thankful to Sujata Jolly and her team for allowing me to try Omni Ol. It is, and will go onto, without a doubt make such a difference to my everyday life. It’s not always possible to predict exactly when or where a Raynaud’s attack may happen so having Omni Ol to hand is already so comforting. And thus in conclusion, if you suffer from Raynaud’s I cannot recommend Omni Ol enough. The only negative is the price that could be beyond reach with 12ml costing £32 and 50ml for £60. However, for the relief this has given me I would not hesitate to cut other things so that I am able to have this.

I feel so emotional to be posting about a product for Raynaud’s that actually works. It truly is the hope for even more developments in the future. As discussed at the start of the post, February is Raynaud’s Awareness Month and so if you’re looking for more of my posts about Raynaud’s Disease you can find my handy wellness section that now has a dedicated section for Raynaud’s Disease. And my introduction to the work I’ll be doing to raise awareness for Raynaud’s Disease can be found here

    Hi,
    I just wondered if you had used it on active ulcers and how that worked? Also how long does the effect last if you are outside in the cold?
    Thanks

      Hi Charlotte! Thank you so much for your comment! 🙂 so I don’t have skin involvement or ulcers on my skin from scleroderma or Raynaud’s. However, I do have eczema and it didn’t upset this. As for the time of effectiveness, I found once inside it delayed my Raynaud’s coming back as quickly for tasks such as washing my hands, chopping food etc. I will next try it for extended periods outside….when I can brave it! haha. Do let me know if you have any other questions! As for Best wishes, Georgie xo

    Hello can it be used as a regular daily balm to prevent attacks or is it purely after an attack to get the circulation back again please? Thanks

      Hi Tanya! Thank you so much for your comment. This is a really interesting idea I haven’t tried it myself however as the product is so natural I think it would be interesting to see how it performs before times you think you may be prone to an attack. Eg for me I know I will always get an attack as soon as I get something from the fridge, when I go outside or when I prepare food so I’ll have to try this as well! Let me know how you get on if you do and I’ll certainly update this post too 🙂 With many best wishes, Georgie xoxo

    I’ve just discovered this page & product, & although only a minor sufferer as yet of Raynaud’s (left hand much worse than right) I wanted to find something that might ensure better circulation in my right hand in particular, as I’m having major hand surgery in 8 months time or so. So despite my usual cynicism of such products/reviews, I figured it was worth investigating for myself, as I also have Sjogren’s syndrome & SLE both of which are also causing a lot of skin issues with my fingertips.

    I’ve literally just started it tonight but do feel I can see an obvious difference between the 2 fingers I put it on, over those I didn’t. Really hoping it does indeed make a difference

      Kristin I am so happy this post found you and the review helped you. I’m so sorry you have experienced Raynaud’s. Indeed nothing is a miracle cure but I am so happy to have found this oil to soothe the pain and symptoms somewhat in a natural way. It’s a promising start for Raynaud’s treatment xoxo
