Do you have aches and pains?

If you have aches and pains read on.  I’m going to tell you all about my muscle ache massage oil and bath bomb.

I have a bad back.  A really bad back, as anyone who knows me will be aware of.  Some days I have trouble walking and am totally reliant on pain killers to get me through the day but other days I’m not too bad.  I’ve been doing a course of pilates for back care to see if strengthening my core can alleviate any of my aches and pains and I have to say I’m responding well so far.

I’ve been so busy recently making soap and skincare, having developed my range over the last 5 years, that the fact that I’m an aromatherapist kind of gets pushed into the background.

What did I create?

I decided to play around with my essential oils to see if I could find a definitive muscle ache blend.  I did loads of research in my books and lots of blending and sniffing and I’ve come up with a gorgeous blend of oils that all really help sore, aching muscles.  The oils work together to improve circulation, relieve pain and reduce inflammation, whilst clearing the head and aiding sleep.  It’s win win!

I’ve made 2 muscle ache products.  A massage oil and a bath bomb.

The muscle ache oil contains 15 different essential. Each oil has different properties which you can see below.  The oil can be used for massage or just topical application so whichever works for your needs.
