DIY Natural Essential Oil Pain Relief Cream

DIY Natural Essential Oil Pain Relief CreamSometimes I’m convinced I have the body of an 80 something.  When the weather changes, my joints hurt.  When I sit in an office chair for hours straight, my back hurts.  If I go to the gym and workout after a short hiatus, I can’t move the next week.  If I go bowling, I won’t be able to use my wrist the next day. Hi, I’m Dara, and I’m 25 going on 85.  It’s a not so fun cycle, but it is what it is.  Those are just some of the reasons I’m thankful for this amazing essential oil pain relief cream I’m about to share with y’all!

When I’m feeling more like an 80 something rather than a 20 something, I turn to my beloved essential oils and this DIY essential oil pain relief cream recipe.  The best part about it this pain cream is it’s natural and great for alleviating minor aches and pains, relaxing muscles, and supporting healthy joint function.

If you’re an essential oil user, chances are you probably already have the three oils needed to make this DIY essential oil pain relief cream.  PanAway and Peppermint both come in the Premium Starter Kit and Valor is one of everyone’s favorite must have oil.  If you don’t already have these three oils, add them to your list, because they are great everyday essential oils!


1/4 Cup Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
10 Drops Valor Essential Oil
10 Drops PanAway Essential Oil
10 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil
Small Glass Mason Jar

In the glass jar, whip up the solid coconut oil with a fork until it becomes a creamy texture.  Add in each essential oil and mix together.  Store in a cool, dark place when not in use.  *Remember to always store essential oils and essential oil blends in glass, not plastic!  For this recipe, you will want solid, non fractionated coconut oil to achieve a creamy texture.

To get the most out of your essential oils, make sure you are using high quality, 100% pure, un-adulterated essential oils.  I only use and recommend Young Living Essential Oils for a variety of reasons listed here.

    This sounds great! I was in a serious car accident when I was 16 and to this day my back acts up every now and then. I've been wanting to get into essential oils and this seems like the perfect gateway. Thanks for sharing!
