Why is it that most natural products are geared toward woman and babies? I would like to see more companies feature a line of natural products just for men. Men need some pampering too! They work hard all day, endure high amounts of stress, and body aches. If your man is in need of some tender loving care give him a nice massage with this muscle rub solution. The salve does wonders for helping to loosen up those hard-working muscles and melt the stress away. Massage into stiff, and aching shoulders, neck, back, and feet.
Muscle Rub Recipe
1 teaspoon lanolin
1 1/2 ounces extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 ounce beeswax, shaved or grated
2-3 drops arnica essential oil
6 drops ginger essential oil
3-4 drops lemon essential oil
- In an ovenproof glass measuring cup or container with a pour spout, combine the beeswax, olive-oil, and lanolin. Place the cup in a hot-water bath until the wax is nearly melted. Next, remove the cup from the hot water bath and stir the mixture to evenly mix the ingredients.
- Let the mixture cool. Once you see the mixture begin to harden around the edges of the cup, add the essentials oils and stir to combine them.
- Pour into a sterile widemouthed jar and allow to cool before capping. The rub can be stored in a cool, dark place for several months.
*rub is not recommended to be used on pregnant woman.
