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!

Ingredients:

3.5 oz. cocoa butter OR mango butter
1 oz. shea butter OR sal butter
1 oz. organic adzuki beans
1 mL cinnamon leaf essential oil OR fresh ginger essential oil OR chili seed essential oil
1.5 mL peppermint essential oil

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, weigh out the cocoa butter and shea (or sal) butter into a double boiler. Heat until melted then remove from heat.

Weigh out the adzuki beans and set aside.

Once the butter mixture begins cooling and starts to look cloudy, measure out the essential oils using graduated transfer pipettes and stir into the butter mixture. (If you prefer a fragrance oil over essential oils, use 2.5 mL of your favorite skin safe fragrance oil for a light scent or up to double for a stronger scent.)

Now pour the cooling butters evenly into two mold cavities of this Ozera 6-Cavity Silicone Soap Mold.

Evenly divide the adzuki beans into each of the two mold cavities you just poured the melted butters into and gently mix with a utensil.

Allow your massage bars to finish solidifying. You can speed up this process by popping the mold into your fridge.

Once your massage bars have fully solidified, simply remove from the mold cavities and package or use immediately.

As this Lush inspired massage bar recipe creates a massage bar that easily melts on body contact, you will need to keep your massage bars stored in a temperature controlled location away from heat.

To use, simply massage the bars onto your skin.

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.
