A Recipe for Homemade Sore Muscle Rub for Fast Pain Relief

Natural Medicine March 30, 2017

At all ages, sore muscles can be a major problem. Those younger than 5o usually have sore muscles due to overuse or sports, those over 50 may have arthritic pain and also muscle overuse that causes constant pain. If we don’t have any other underlying issues for our pain, we usually head for the pharmacy for over-the-counter drugs, like acetaminophen or ibuprophen to ease the pain. There are some rubs and creams on the market as well, but they can be a bit pricey. There is no reason why, with just a few common ingredients, we can’t make our own sore muscle rub.

Here is a recipe that is simple and economical for you to make your own rub for sore muscles:

The recipe begins with therapeutic essential oils, and below are some of the oils that are quite effective when it comes to soothing sore muscles. You can choose the one you already have or the one that is your favorite scent.




and Rosemary

You will also need beeswax


Ingredients you will need:

A carrier oil, which would be grapeseed, olive oil, coconut oil, or sweet almond oil

An essential oil from the list above, preferably therapeutic grade or simply high quality

Materials you will need:

metal spoon

heat safe glass bowl


and a metal tin like these


Pour carrier oil chosen and your beeswax into the glass bowl, in the meantime fill your pot with hot water half-way, and place on stove top on medium heat. You will be making a water bath or what they call a bain marie. Place the glass bowl on the top of the heating pot. This also creates a double boiler effect to keep your product from burning.

When the water begins to boil, turn it to medium low. You still want a low boil for your mixture. Stir with metal spoon until beeswax is mixed thoroughly. Remove the glass bowl carefully and sit it on a table. Let the mixture cool for a few minutes then put the essential oils in the mixture. Make sure the mixture is cooled down, or the essential oils will evaporate into the air instead of being incorporated into the mixture.

Pour the mixture into metal tins or a glass jar. You can even refrigerate the product if you want it more solid. The refrigerator will also help to cool the product quickly in case you need it immediately.
