Pain Relief Massage Oil Recipe
1 fl. oz. sweet almond oil
12 drops chili seed essential oil
6-8 drops fresh ginger essential oil
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.
