One of the goals I have seen often this month is learning how to make your own remedies. For some this can seem daunting. However, it is much easier and more cost efficient then you would think! The key is knowing what to use and then learning how to use it — which we will be going over more and more this month. To start you want to keep it simple — like this homemade cream.
This cream can be used topically on many types of pain.
Homemade Pain Cream
You Will Need:
- *Pan or double boiler
- *Measuring equipment (cup, scale, etc.)
Essential Oils (You can use your own combination):
Remove from heat and begin allowing your mixture to cool.
After the mixture has cooled some add your essential oils — about 30 drops (total). Lavender is the best choice for little ones. Clove, peppermint, and eucalyptus are safe for older kids (over 10), and wintergreen should be reserved for adults.
It is normal for it to still be in a liquid state. Then transfer it to your storage container of choice with a secure lid and allow it thicken. Then it is ready for use!
If the texture is thicker than you like make sure you try it before changing anything. Often as soon as it hits your skin it melts and blends in. However, if you would like it to have a softer look you can whip it with a whisk or mixer.
Can Be Used For:
- Sore muscles
- Joint Pain
- Pulled muscles
