Soothing Muscle Rub

In aromatherapy, pine is used in saunas, steam baths and massage blends for sore muscles. The natural evergreen aroma of pine essential oil is a sweet alternative to harshly medicinal pharmaceutical preparations. Here's a recipe that combines the oils of several plants used to add therapeutic fragrance to steams and saunas.

30 drops pine essential oil
30 drops juniper berry essential oil
30 drops peppermint essential oil
10 drops lemon essential oil
Combine oils.

To make a penetrating massage oil for overworked muscles, dilute 12 drops of this concentrated blend in 3 ounces of vegetable oil (such as sweet almond).

This fragrant muscle rub is especially nice the day after a strenuous workout when muscles may be tight and sore.

Ease of Preparation: 3 to 5 ingredients

We Suggest
Never apply concentrated essential oil blends directly to skin without diluting them first; irritation may develop.
