I salt and pepper bath with epsom salts and pepper oil is a wonderful painkiller. marjoram suits me fine for arthritis pain and galbanum essential oil and arnica for pain. also using whole peppercorns you get the essential oils if you grind a pepper and eat that. Only use whole peppercorns that you grind the kind that's already ground up is all dried out and nasty.
