This DIY essential oil recipe penetrates deeply into the muscles of the back, helping to increase blood flow, relax muscles and relieve pain.
Add the essential oils to a 10 ml roller bottle. Fill the rest of the bottle with carrier oil, leaving a small gap at the top. Replace the roller and lid and shake to blend.
Massage into the back regularly whenever you're feeling sore.
I get pain in my lower back if I stand for too long and this recipe always helps. The oils used are a combination of pain relieving oils, anti-inflammatory oils, oils that relieve spasms and oils that improve circulation, increasing blood flow to the area. As an added benefit, both Juniper and Black Pepper are good for calming the nerves, which can be particularly helpful with chronic pain.
