Once I made this recipe, I use my Sore Away Pain Relieving Cream all the time! Rub it on and in a few minutes, your sore muscles feel so much better. Making natural body products that you know are safe gives you peace of mind!
DIY pain relief
It’s not as hard as you might think to ditch and switch to natural products. Learn how to make homemade pain relief cream yourself and you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
This pain-relieving cream recipe is so simple to make. The base is coconut oil so if you want it to be a thicker consistency you can store it in the fridge. I like it almost runny, so I leave it out and just use it as oil when it’s warmer in the house. Coconut oil melts at room temperature.
Make sure to use quality essential oils. We only use doTerra. They are pure and we know what we’re putting on our bodies. Some of the cheaper oils are really not good.
Homemade pain relief cream recipe
I have never been a user or pain creams like ben gay or anything like that. As I am getting older with the physical strains of daycare and working in the garden, I have developed a whole lot more aches and pains.
Forty is the new 80 for me. Ha! But I still like to stay active and it gives me a lot of sore muscles.
I can be so sore I think I won’t be able to walk, but after I apply a small amount of this pain-relieving cream, I feel better almost instantly. It’s hard to believe.
You can use it on your sore back and shoulder muscles pulled hamstrings or sore feet and ankles from standing or walking a long time. It helps almost instantly. I love not having to wait or use ibuprofen for pain relief.
Sore muscle cream
All you do to make the sore muscle cream is melt the coconut oil and add the other ingredients. You can do it in just a few minutes. You might want to use a mason jar or something that seals really well so it won’t leak if it’s at the liquid stage in a warm environment. I love to have my sore muscle cream in a short, wide mouth mason jar in my travel bag so I can take it on the go.
