HEALTH HACK | HOMEMADE MUSCLE BALM

Chances are if you’re working out the right way, you’re going to be sore sometimes. And while stretching can prevent a lot of soreness, little aches and pains can still pop up and leave you favoring a leg or an arm or a pair of abs. Most of us don’t have a lifestyle that allows for an all day workout and then all day recovery day the next day, so we found a little natural remedy for your sore muscles that you can make nice and easily at home!

Ingredients

1/2 ounce emu oil

2 ounces olive oil

5 drops Clove Essential Oil

5 drops Lavender Essential Oil

10 drops Peppermint Essential Oil

10 drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil

5 grams dried arnica

Put arnica and olive oil in an oven safe bowl in a 200°F oven for 2 hours to infuse.

Strain the herbs and save the oil.

Allow the mixture to cool slightly and add all the oils in a small bottle and shake together gently to combine.

To use, rub a small amount of the oil on the sore area and massage it in!
