DIY Pain Cream with Essentials Oils

I know I'm probably late to the party, but I've just discovered the whole world of essential oils! In the past I've used lavender for calming Austin before bed and tea tree oil in his diaper wipe solution but that's it. Enter Heather and her Young Living Oils...

She mentioned to me that lavender had a ton of other uses, including clearing up eczema. I tried it on a patch that was behind Allyson's knee and it looked better in no time. I was sold.

I ordered an amazing kit from Young Living that came with 10 everyday essential oils and a diffuser. We LOVE them and have started to use them daily. And the diffuser, AMAZING. We use it daily, Conrad loves to have Peace and Calming going.

Besides diffusing and applying them directly onto your skin, you can mix them with others and make some pretty amazing things.

One of the first things I made for Conrad was a pain cream.

YLPainCream


1/4 Coconut Oil, whipped
10 drop each of Valor, Peppermint & PanAway

Whip coconut oil in mixer {or hand mixer} until it doubles. It took about 5 minutes.
Add to a glass container. Add in oils. Stir and store in a cool place.

Easy peasy, friends.

Conrad uses this cream multiple times a day, especially after his physical therapy, he said it take the ache away. I love the way it smells, so amazing. Another bonus, it's natural. I love that it's not harmful for my family.

Have you discovered the fabulous world of essential oils? What's your favorite?
