Pain relieving sleep rub – Young Living

I am a lover of oils.  I just love that there is a way to heal with something as natural as an oil.

I am more enthusiastic about grabbing an essential oil instead of an over the counter medication.

My husband was injured on-duty and has been suffering from back pain for almost 6 months.

I decided to pick a few of my favorite oils and add it to to whipped coconut oil to create the most relaxing massage oil I’ve ever used.

This isn’t an ad, it’s just something I’ve found really helpful with promoting healthy sleep as well as healing aches and pains.  The first night I had my husband repay the favor and rub it on my back I was out so quickly.  And I had the most relaxed mind and body.  Usually my mind goes a million miles per minute before I fall asleep, so this was amazing for me.

 

10 drops Lavender

7 drops Panaway

7 drops Copaiba

1 cup whipped coconut oil

How to whip the coconut oil:

First make sure you have organic unrefined coconut oil.  It  truly makes a difference.

Mix using a whisk attachment on high until coconut oil looks whipped.

Make sure the coconut oil is a solid before you attempt to whip it.  If it’s a liquid you won’t get the same look.  I’m not to sure it really makes a difference it does melt into the skin regardless.

Once you have whipped coconut oil slowly add in your essential oils.

Store in a cool dry place or you may wake up to a liquid.

I rub this down my kids spine before bed as well to help them sleep better and relax before bedtime.

If you try it please let me know how it works for you.
