This brings me to this recipe. A super easy, natural muscle ache remedy. It takes just a few minutes to make and is made with ingredients you can easily obtain!
You will need:
- 1/2 cup of coconut oil
- 5 drops peppermint essential oil
- 2 Tbsp. Cayenne pepper
- 5 drops eucalyptus essential oil
What I love about this is that it is sooo easy to make! Take a plastic container and slightly melt the coconut oil. It will only take a few seconds in the microwave. Once it is melted...add the ingredients and stir! Once cooled, the coconut oil will go back to a solid state. You can leave this at room temp or store in the fridge then rub it on achy muscles as needed.
Coconut oil makes an amazing carrier for this ointment as it has tons of nourishing properties for your skin. It is also a very clean oil with no additives. The peppermint oil will provide the cooling sensation. Cayenne is good for a few reasons. First, it contains capsaicin which helps alleviate pain and, second, it also promotes circulation which will help muscles rebound and heal. The eucalyptus oil helps with inflammation and natural pain relief.
