DIY Soaks and Salves: Soothe Sore Muscles, Ease Menstrual Cramps, and Promote Relaxation
You know me, always looking for natural remedies. Holistic = happy in my book! Well here are some DIY soaks and salves for natural pain relief and relaxation. Please make sure you’re using therapeutic grade oils, not fragrance oils.
In a double boiler melt the bees wax and coconut oil together. Once melted, transfer into a small glass mason jar and let cool for a few minutes. Then, add the oils. Let completely cool until it is solid again. It’s perfect for massaging into sore muscles, onto the temples to ease a headache, or on your abdomen to ease menstrual cramps.
In a large glass bowl, drop 2 drops of each oil directly into the bowl and then cover with one cup of Epsom Salt. Stir into the oils. Drop remaining 3 drops each of oil into the salts and stir again. Put the entire mixture in one hot bath.
