My Young Living Premium Starter Kit really came in handy last weekend after my husband helped a friend move some furniture. Unfortunately, he came home after helping and was in pain. His lower back was hurting and he was having trouble bending or twisting. He was miserable and I knew it would only get worse if he didn’t get something.
You know how that feels….your muscles are aching, they tighten up and you don’t feel like you can do anything.
Although my husband is still a tad skeptical, I convinced him to let me try my DIY Sore Muscle Cream before he took any pain medicine. I had already been using my Joy and Stress Away blend from the kit, so I knew they could provide relief and wanted to prove it to him.
This sore muscle cream is made with oils from the Premium Starter Kit and coconut oil, which I always have in the house because it is so versatile. It is also a good oil to use when diluting essential oils. Here’s the recipe for the cream:
DIY Sore Muscle Cream
- 1 cup Coconut Oil
- 10 drops Valor
- 10 drops Peppermint
- 10 drops PanAway
I just mixed the ingredients in an air tight container and then massaged it into my husband’s back, directly where he was hurting. He laid still for about 5 minutes and when he got up, he was surprised how easily he was able to move. He felt relief and didn’t want to take any other medicine. I applied the cream again before bed and again the next morning and he was amazed at how he felt!
UPDATE: This cream seems to work on bruising as well. I banged up my arm the other night when I tripped going to the restroom. I immediately put this cream on for relief and then reapplied in the morning and night for the next few days. A bruise did appear, but it seemed to heal much faster than other bruises I’ve had in the past.
Another plus to this natural sore muscle cream is that it smells heavenly! He may still be a little skeptical, but I think he is coming around!
