DIY Ache Relief Roll-On for Muscle Soreness

One unavoidable thing we all experience when we age is joint and muscle soreness! Apparently, the ligaments and tendons that hold our aging joints together become all stiff and leathery. This is the reason why it’s important to maintain your muscle health with regular exercising and stretching.

Moreover, some people who just started getting back into shape can experience horrible muscle pains the day after, such that you can’t even get in your car without looking like a stiff crab. Of course, it gets better in time as you continue to work your unworked and bored joints, but for the meantime, we conjured up an essential oil roll-on recipe to help you with muscle soreness.

It’s an amazingly simple recipe that only makes use of our specially formulated blend, Relief Essential Oil Blend.
