Relief Massage Blend Recipe – New and Improved!

We’ve reformulated our Relief Essential Oil Blend, and let me tell you, it works. Using it in this massage blend brings quick soothing relief.

One of our aromatherapists at Simply Earth, Shilah, reformulated this blend so that it works better and smells better. She sent it out to some of the massage therapists that use this blend, and they all sent back positive results!

Just like the massage therapists, I have found success with this blend. When I’m not working for Simply Earth or busy being a mom, I love to coach soccer. During the season my tendonitis tends to flare up and makes coaching a lot harder. On bad days the whole back of my leg will feel hot due to inflammation.

I love using Relief Essential Oil Blend on days when tendonitis is bothering me. Its cooling sensation and anti-inflammatory properties bring soothing relief fast while supporting your body’s natural healing process.

This recipe uses only natural, raw ingredients to make your pain relief toxin-free.

Relief Essential Oil Blend

Relief Essential Oil Blend is a rich oil that relieves painful inflammation. Some of the oils in this even help reduce the feeling of pain.* Rosemary, Juniper Berry, Eucalyptus, Peppermint, and Copaiba Essential Oils power this blend for quick, soothing relief.

Avocado Oil

We’ll be using avocado oil as our carrier oil in this massage blend. Avocado Oil has skin-penetrating properties, which will help this blend relieve deep residing pain. If you don’t have avocado oil on hand, you can replace it with another carrier oil. Sesame Seed Oil is also a good skin penetrator.

Some of the oils in this blend can be skin irritating. If the oil has been oxidized (left with the cap off for long periods of time) it is more likely to cause skin irritation. This blend is best used at a 5% dilution rate or lower (like it is in this recipe). Check out this dilution chart for diluting Essential Oil properly. 

This essential oil is safe to use with kids age 10+.
