Over the years, my neck and shoulder muscles have experienced quite a bit of pain and discomfort. When I noticed that a doctor friend of mine used magnesium cream for the same problem, I began to investigate how to relieve muscle pain naturally.
After a lot of research and experimentation, I discovered the power of combining Epsom salt (Magnesium Sulfate), coconut oil, and Calming Muscle Oil Blend. This was a game-changer for me, and I want to share its magic with you.
There are some precautions to consider before you start shopping, which we’ll talk about later in this article.
Be Proactive About Muscle Pain Relief
I recommend that you don’t take the easy way when it comes to your health.
We’re living in a time where we want instant access to everything all the time. So, why should we take time to make our own solution for muscle pain relief? Why not just buy premixed Epsom salt with lavender or a similar combination product?
The answer is:
- Many pre-made Epsom salts with essential oils don’t work.
When you buy an Epsom salt product that’s premixed with essential oil, the volatile constituents of the essential oil begin to oxidize. This means that over time, the essential oils will lose their effectiveness. It also becomes impossible to test the essential oils to see if they are in fact 100% pure after they’ve been combined with Epsom salt.
How Can I Get Rid of My Muscle Pain Naturally?
Congratulations, this is a big step in taking your health into your own hands.
Achieving sore muscle relief is actually a lot easier than you might think. You just have to make sure you have the right ingredients.
What You’ll Need
- 100% Pure Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulfate)
- Carrier Oil
- Calm Muscle Essential Oil Blend
How to Prepare Your Muscle Pain Relief Solution
You have a couple of simple options to get your muscles on their way to relief.
Technique #1 - Essential Salt Rub
The easiest way is just to place some carrier oil in your hand, release one drop of Calm Muscle Essential Oil Blend into the carrier oil, and simply apply it to the affected muscles. I prefer to use it on my neck and shoulders for sore muscle relief.
Technique #2 - Essential Salt Bath
Another great way to achieve muscle pain relief can be done in the comfort of your own bathtub. Simply add 2 scoops of 100% pure Epsom salt, a few drops of fractionated coconut oil, and a few drops of Calm Muscle Essential Oil Blend to your bath. Be sure to mix these together well, then simply relax in the tub. The moment your muscles begin to absorb this solution, they’ll relax, increase blood flow, and help relieve your muscular tension and pain.
How do These Ingredients Relieve Muscle Pain?
It took some time to get the right ingredients together to relieve muscle pain, and each one brings something special to the table.
100% pure Epsom salt has the ability to increase the absorption of the oils into the skin. Magnesium Sulfate is being recommended more and more due to its therapeutic properties.
The reason why I emphasize getting 100% pure Epsom salt is because even the slightest change can drastically alter the effects. This is one of the most important things I want you to remember. Accept nothing less than 100% pure Epsom salt!
Carrier oil is a wonderful way to dilute the Calm Muscle Essential Oil Blend, and this is important since 100% pure and natural essential oils are not recommended to be applied directly without dilution.
Calm Muscle Essential Oil Blend is the result of extensive research into essential oils and how they can work together to provide sore muscle relief.
Here is the complete list of Calm Muscle's Essential Oils:
- Wintergreen: This essential oil has undeniable therapeutic properties for muscles, and it is also used in the most popular muscle relief products in the world.
- Nutmeg: This essential oil is commonly used in Thailand for pain relief.
- Turmeric: Many people are taking turmeric in pill form due to its well-known anti-inflammatory properties.
- Ginger: This is another spicy, warm essential oil that also contains anti-inflammatory properties.
- Black pepper: Black pepper acts as a catalyst to help all of the other essential oils penetrate your muscles faster.
- Peppermint: Due to its refreshing scent and long-standing reputation for pain relief, peppermint has become one of the most popular essential oils on the planet.
We all experience muscle pains from time to time, and we don’t have to reach for the first muscle pain relief product we see at the store. We don't have to wonder how to relieve muscle pain. We have the power to make our own decisions and take care of ourselves. Using the recipe I recommended above, I am confident you can experience some much-needed muscle pain relief. Plus, you made it yourself!
