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.

How to Make Homemade Muscle Rub

Total Time: 30 minutes

Serves: 30

Ingredients:

  • 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

  • glass jar

Directions:

  1. Pour all oils (except essential oils) into a jar. Place a saucepan with 2 inches of water over medium-low heat.

  2. Place jar in saucepan and allow contents to melt. Stir to combine. Add the cayenne and ginger/turmeric.

  3. Once combined, allow to cool slightly and then add in essential oils. Mix well.

  4. Pour mixture into metal tins or storage containers and allow to set.
