Pain Relief Massage Oil Recipe

Ingredients:

1 fl. oz. sweet almond oil
12 drops chili seed essential oil
6-8 drops fresh ginger essential oil

Instructions:

Use a small funnel to add one fluid ounce of sweet almond oil to a one ounce glass bottle. (Pictured are both a one ounce amber glass bottle with dropper and a one ounce frosted glass bottle with a black pump. You can find and purchase both of these glass bottles from SKS Bottle & Packaging.)

Tip: Make this pain relief massage oil even more amazing by infusing arnica flowers in your sweet almond oil and strain prior to use.

Using a dropper or a disposable plastic transfer pipette, add the drops of both of your essential oils to the bottle with the sweet almond oil. Use a fresh pipette for each essential oil to avoid cross contamination.

Screw the lid onto your bottle of pain relief massage oil and shake well to mix.

If desired, print the free printable labels for my pain relief massage oil recipe here onto sticker paper. (I use full sheet labels from WorldLabel.)

To use, apply a small amount to affected area and massage into sore muscles and joints as desired. (Be sure to do a patch test first!)

Take care to avoid getting the massage oil in your eyes, mucous membranes and other sensitive areas as the chili seed essential oil will cause it to burn like the dickens.

Once your massage is complete, wash hands well with hot soap and water.

This natural cayenne pain relief salve recipe is wonderful for treating pain caused by arthritis, sore muscles, stiffness and swelling. Plus there are free printable labels for your final product!

You can then decorate your bottle as desired. For my bottle I used a blank sticker label and washi tape. I covered a section of the label with washi tape then cut it out into the shape of heart. I then cut out a smaller heart shape from the blank label sheet and adhered it to the front of the washi tape covered heart and wrote out my message. Finally the I adhered the entire heart to the bottle.

To give your massage oil an even more romantic feel, package instead in a clear glass bottle and a small amount of rose petals or buds, calendula petals or even pink mica.

Not only do raw cacao beans which not only taste great, but is high flavonoids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Cacao also acts as a natural antidepressant in the body through natural elements that elevate the mood, help increase focus, and give feelings of attraction, pleasure, and excitement. So, what are cacao beans? Cacoa beans are basically raw chocolate and are the seeds of the fruit of the native South American cacao tree that have been dried and fully fermented. They contain no sugar and are a great source of magnesium. To consume cacao beans, you may simple eat them straight. Or you may choose to blend them into smoothies, freeze then eat cold with some raw honey, blend with maca into an herbal tea, blend with a sweetener and nuts for a natural chocolate bar, or crush and add to ice cream as a substitute for chocolate chips!
