I just wanted to share this hoping that it may benefit others who, like me, may experience chronic pain across the body.
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup beeswax
2 tsp ground cayenne
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground turmeric
(You can use 2 tsp of either ginger or turmeric instead of 1 of both)
15 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
15 drops Lavender Essential Oil
Metal storage tins
Place the coconut oil and beeswax in a glass jar.
Place the jar in a pot and add 2 inches of water.
Gently heat to melt the coconut oil and beeswax.
4 Stir in the ground spices.
Allow to cool slightly before stirring in the essential oils.
Thank you for sharing! I generally have chronic pain from getting older, injuries from running or stiffness from MS so I’m always on the lookout for natural ways to mitigate pain and soreness! I made a CBD/THC salve a couple of months back that I like a lot for pain. I have saved your recipe to try out a batch soon.
@Artemisia like u im always on the lookout for new things to try. If u could send me this recipe that would be awesome.
@Cosmic_Curiosity awesome recipe. Definitely gonna give it a try. I maks my own capsaicin salve. But ive found that i can heal and help everyone else around me, but they never help when i make them for myself.
@Cosmic_Curiosity Does this discolor your skin and/or clothes? Turmeric stains my tea cups, so I wasn’t sure if it would. I have fibromyalgia and ALS. Double whammy there. I have the chronic widespread pain from fibromyalgia. Then I get pain as a secondary symptom from the muscle wasting caused by the ALS.
I hope it brings you some relief. Word of warning - don’t wear expensive clothing or white! I learned the hard way! My white t-shirt was a lovely turmeric yellow It also makes your skin a bit yellow! You can eliminate the turmeric if preferred.
