Pain Cream Recipe Using Young Living Essential Oils

As unfortunate as it is, I have recently realized that I am indeed getting older (boo!) and am experiencing more and more general aches and pains.

I, quite often, have mid-back pain (I’d love to think it’s just from sleeping on a bad mattress, haha) that I have simply been tolerating because I can’t stand the thought of taking pain medication on a regular basis. I had tried several topical creams to relieve it, but they were comprised of nothing but chemicals I couldn’t pronounce, and realized that I had NO CLUE about what exactly it was I was putting onto my body.

After doing some research, I found that there were quite a few homemade pain creams out there that were made up of totally natural ingredients. I read through, what seemed like, hundreds of reviews and testimonials of these products improving the pain and general health of many people.

So I decided to give it a chance, and ordered the Premium Starter Kit from Young Living Essential Oils, and the day I received it was the day my family’s physical, mental and spiritual health began improving….sounds a little dramatic, but that is the TRUTH.

One of the first things I made was the pain cream I’d read so much about. I whipped it up and had my husband apply it to my back, and within minutes the pain in my back and across my shoulders was totally GONE! And not to mention, I smelled amazing.

Here’s the recipe I used:

3/4 c organic, unrefined coconut oil (paid link)

10 drops each of PanAway, Valor and Peppermint

I heated the coconut oil in a glass bowl in the microwave (didn’t take long since it liquefies at 75 degrees). Removed the bowl from the microwave, added the oils, stirred very well (some even whip it together using a hand mixer when the coconut oil is a little more hardened), then poured the mixture into a glass jar (which was an empty coconut oil jar).

NOTE: to make the recipe a little more concentrated, use 2 Tablespoons coconut oil as opposed to 3/4 c.

This pain cream works well on muscle soreness from exercise as well.
