DIY massage oil recipes for sore muscles

Posted by Jasmine Piliposyan on

Treating sore, aching muscles does not require medical attention. With the help of at-home recipes, you can naturally heal and soothe the mind and body. Essential oils have the ability to cool and bring comfort to aching muscles, while promoting skin vitality and suppleness.

We have put together a few of our favorite essential oil-based blends to try at home. Please use caution before putting essential oils on your skin to avoid any negative reactions and sensitivities. Remember to dilute essential oils with a carrier oil or a cream/lotion of your choosing for your safety. 2% dilution rate is a safe bet.

Invigorating massage oil

Mix ingredients together and close the bottle tightly with a lid. Can lightly warm up before use.

  • 100 mL glass bottle (we recommend glass instead of plastic to avoid chemical leakage in your formula)
  • 3 tbsp of Organic Jojoba Oil to revitalize skin tone and softness
  • 8 drops of Lavender essential oil to reduce emotional stress and tension and minimize skin irritation
  • 6 drops of Peppermint essential oil to cool muscles  
  • 3 drops of Clary Sage essential oil is anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic

Pain relief massage oil

Mix ingredients together and close the bottle tightly with a lid. Can lightly warm up before use.

  • 100 mL glass bottle (or a larger glass bottle. Upgrade ingredient amount to reflect the size of the container)
  • 3 tbsp of Way of Will’s Muscle Therapy Carrier Oil to deliver Vitamins A and E and Omega 3 and 6 to repair damaged skin.
  • 7 drops Peppermint essential oil to cool and calm muscles
  • 3 drops Cedarwood essential oil to provide strength and stability for stress-related conditions.
  • 3 drops of Lavender essential oil to reduce emotional stress and increase skin vitality

Not into DIY? No worries. Way of Will has specially-formulated, essential oil-based products that are designed to do the same, like the 03 Soothe and Cool Massage Oil made with Peppermint, German Chamomile and Lemongrass essential oils to cool affected zones and calm muscles and tissues.
