Make Your Own Pain Relief and Itch Relief Cream

If you like all of these great freebies and deals, make sure you sign up for my newsletter.  

As most of you know, I have fibromyalgia.  Well, I've also developed a painful skin rash due to the fibromyalgia now.  I've gotten so tired of all of the prescriptions.  My doctor gave me a prescription for the skin rash.  It did not really work.  So, I decided to make my own with some essential oils.  A friend swears by essential oils, and I figured I had nothing to lose.

I found "recipe" that I tweaked.  It works much better than the prescription cream.  In addition, I found that it works great on those itchy insect bites that I seem to get every time I head outside.  I'm so excited to have a natural pain relief and itch cream.

This is super easy to make.  Unfortunately, the ingredients probably aren't something that you have in your pantry.  The ingredients are easy to get, though.  I got all of my ingredients from the grocery store and Amazon.

Here you go:  

Pain Relief & Itch Relief Cream

3 tbsp Beeswax
1/4 c Coconut Oil
1/2 c Sweet Almond Oil
2 tbsp Water
8-10 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
15 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil
15 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil

Put the beeswax, coconut oil and sweet almond oil in a double boiler or do like me and make your own double boiler with a pot of water and a bowl.  

Melt all of the ingredients on low heat.

Remove your bowl or double boiler from the heat and let the oils cool for a few minutes.  Then add the water and mix well.

Let the oils cool a little more before adding your essential oils. Stir them in and pour into a jar with a tight lid.

Let the cream completely cool before using.  It will thicken.

Apply the cream to any aches and pains you may have or to insect bites.  

It really does work.  I even used it on a burn, and could not believe how well it worked.  You know how a burn still hurts and burns for a couple days, especially when warm water gets on it.  I had none of that after using the cream.  Don't get me wrong it isn't an instant relief.  It may take a few minutes to work.
