Douleurs relevant du conseil officinal : efficacité des huiles essentielles et rôle du pharmacien

Abstract : The pain is one of the most frequent reasons for medical consultations, it is part of the daily life of the pharmacist to deal with patients suffering from pain: it can be a canker sore as well as a sprain. The pharmacist has a choice ally in the therapeutic arsenal to treat pain: aromatherapy and its essential oils. With their numerous therapeutic properties, they can represent a natural alternative to allopathy or can be used as a complement to it in order to relieve everyday ailments. During this thesis, we will describe the painful pathway and what can influence the perception of pain, in particular by focusing on some mechanisms of action of analgesic or anti-inflammatory essential oils. Essential oils do not require a prescription but are not without toxicity. We will insist on the role of the pharmacist who, as an advisor and health professional, must direct the patient towards the right essential oil(s) according to the situation and give the appropriate advice for use. It is the pharmacist who will verify the absence of drug interactions, remind the patient of the necessary precautions for use and the potential toxicity of essential oils in order to avoid any misuse.
