Make Your Own Massage Oil for Sore Muscles with Essential Oils
Here’s a quick recipe for using some of our essential oils to make your own massage oil at home. We’ve chosen these three oils to blend for their distinct benefits with helping to loosen up sore muscles.
We picked rosemary not just for its scent but because it contains camphor, something known to improve circulation and relieve spasms. Lemongrass also perks up circulation and calms irritation. Eucalyptol in eucalyptus restores over stimulated muscles to return them to their balanced state.
8 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
6 drops Lemongrass Essential Oil
6 drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil
5 teaspoons of a carrier oil - we suggest sweet almond
You’ll need a carrier oil to blend the concentrated essential oils into. We suggest sweet almond oil, something you can find at your local natural food store. You’ll also want to use a new or clean bottle to pour everything into, making sure it’s an amber or cobalt glass in order to keep the essential oils from breaking down in sunlight.
Once you’ve added the essential oils to the carrier oil and poured it into your container, your massage oil is ready to go! Be sure to use it on local areas, where you’re muscles are sore and massage away.
