Jojoba makes an excellent carrier for essential oils, we won't got into the nitty gritty of why in this post, find out more on our post dedicated to this topic. We decided to do a Mix of the Month, essential oil mixes to make and use. With summer upon us, many of us are working in the garden and participating in sports and other active hobbies. This means sore muscles! While sore muscles heal well on their own, this essential oil blend will help reduce the pain, it is also said to promote faster healing. We used our arnica infused jojoba, which can be used on its own as a muscle rub, but we thought adding a few beneficial essential oils would not only make it smell great, but increase benefits and hopefully make it more effective.
MUSCLE BLEND ESSENTIAL OIL BLEND
1 glass roller bottle (.3 oz size)
20 drops essential oil of peppermint
5 drops essential oil of clove
5 drops essential oil of rosemary
5 drops essential oil of lavender
100% pure jojoba (we used our jojoba jojoba infused with arnica)
*Place drops of essential oil in roller bottles, top off with jojoba, shake gently. For use, roll on palm, massage gently onto sore muscles. Also try using this blend with a lymph flow massage to improve healing of sore muscles.
To create labels, right click on this image and "save as" then drag and drop it into a file to print on the label of your choice. We used Avery Print-to-the-Edge Square Labels, Kraft Brown, 2 x 2 Inches, Pack of 300 (22846). Make a bunch to give friends & family members.
There are a few precautions with any essential oils: Never use undiluted, in eyes or around mucus membranes. Do not ingest. Keep away from children and do not use essential oil on children or pets unless directed by a professional (cats in particular are very sensitive to essential oils, never use on cats). Avoid while pregnant and with homeopathics. May cause skin irritation (test on a small patch of skin in an insensitive portion of your body with proper dilution rate).
