  •  Try to make your natural pain reliever cream. Check out the article we found over at One Good Thing by Jillee.

    This is a great formula we just discovered for a homemade pain relieving cream. It uses coconut oil and beeswax as the base, and essential oils plus camphor and menthol as the active components. What’s interesting is that Jillee, the creator of this formula, has a son who has constant pain due to spinal trouble and so she really has had the chance to put the cream to the test.

    Homemade Pain Relieving Cream


    • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil
    • 2 teaspoons Beeswax pellets
    • 2 teaspoons Camphor crystals or 5 drops Camphor oil
    • 2 teaspoons Menthol crystals or 5 drops Peppermint oil
    • 5 drops Eucalyptus oil

    Melt the coconut oil and beeswax together. You can do this in the microwave, in a double boiler, or what I did was set a small saucepan on the stove for a minute or two and then turned the burner off and added the coconut oil and beeswax. Stir until melted.

    Allow the mixture to cool for a few minutes, then add the camphor crystals or oil, the menthol crystals or oil, and the eucalyptus oil.

    Put in a container and allow to cool completely. When it is completely cooled it will be a solid rather than liquid…but the minute it hits your warm skin…it will liquify again. That’s what coconut oil does, which makes it perfect for massaging onto sore muscles and joints.

    This amount of camphor, menthol and eucalyptus seems to be working for Kell…but you can increase the amount of each until you achieve the desired level of effectiveness for you without causing irritation.

    And finally, if you don’t want to mess with making your own “base” cream….here is a A Super Simple Version of Homemade Pain Relieving Cream.

    Just purchase a jar of Vitamin E Cream at just about any grocery, dollar or drug store and add the essential oils to that, and mix. Voila! Done.
