DIY Pain Relief Rub

DIY Pain Relief Rub

Life can be a real pain in the ass sometimes.

Figuratively and literally. It’s been snowing hard for a month straight. I was bound to slip on ice at some point.

Yesterday was my day.

While taking the trash out I hit a patch of ice and went sliding. Arms flailing back arching legs splitting. It wasn’t cute and I hurt after.

I mixed up the recipe below for pain and applied a heating pad.

I dreaded getting out of bed thinking I’d be so sore but I woke up and felt completely fine.

The magic of essential oils.

If you are feeling any sort of nerve or muscle pain I’d highly recommend you try this.

Pain Relief Rub

  • 2 drops peppermint
  • 2 drops black pepper
  • 7 drops copaiba
  • 7 drops marjoram
  • 1/4 cup whipped coconut oil

For added relief apply a heating pad.

Takes only a few moments to whip up and is an excellent way to relieve aches and pains.
