The combination of cayenne, ginger and turmeric provide a heated sensation and help increase blood flow to the sore area. Increased blood flow supports the healing process. This combination also works as an anti inflammatory to reduce swelling.

 If you struggle with pain or discomfort in your muscles, this natural DIY is perfect for you.

Here's how to make it: 
Ingredients:

⅛ c. fractionated coconut oil

¼ c. beeswax

10 drops eucalyptus essential oil

10 drops peppermint essential oil

10 drops lavender essential oil

½ tsp. cayenne powder

½ tsp. turmeric powder

½ tsp. ground ginger

 

Heat up a sauce pan. Put the fractionated coconut oil and the beeswax in the pan and stir until melted. This should be a very quick process.

Once the wax is melted and the two are combined, mix in the cayenne, ginger and turmeric. Allow the mixture to cool slightly before adding in the essential oils. Adding the essential oils in too early can cause the heat to change their composition.

Once you’ve mixed in the oils, pour in the jar and allow to cool. The balm should solidify. Use whenever you need some pain relief in your muscles!
