DIY massage oil recipes for sore muscles

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.
