By Ancient Nutrition
August 24, 2020
This homemade muscle rub penetrates deep into the muscles, promoting a soothing and relaxing sensation. This is an excellent rub for your post-workout routine. Its ingredients feature powerful compounds like curcumin, capsaicin and menthol.
Total Time: 30 minutes
½ cup coconut oil
¼ cup grated beeswax
2 teaspoons cayenne powder
2 teaspoons ginger or turmeric powder (Note: While turmeric is an outstanding muscle and joint soother, be aware that it will cause some temporary skin discoloration)
15 drops peppermint essential oil
15 drops lavender essential oil
Pour all oils (except essential oils) into a jar. Place a saucepan with 2 inches of water over medium-low heat.
Place jar in saucepan and allow contents to melt. Stir to combine. Add the cayenne and ginger/turmeric.
Once combined, allow to cool slightly and then add in essential oils. Mix well.
Pour mixture into metal tins or storage containers and allow to set.
