Why Use a Natural DIY Muscle Rub?
Lots of muscle rubs and muscle pain relief oils and lotions contain all kinds of ingredients you can’t pronounce. Even if you could, where do they come from? Our homemade essential oil DIY muscle rub is all natural, and made from very basic ingredients that nourish your skin while providing relief for all your sore spots.

Note – This is a 4.8% dilution rate so you wouldn’t want to use this for a full-body application or massage oil, rather to spot treat specific muscles that were strained and sore. If you find this is too strong for your skin or you prefer a lower dilution simply add an additional ounce of carrier oil.
