Joint Essential Oil Blend
I created Joint Essential Oil Blend to add to the massage oil I like to use for rubbing around my shoulders, fingers, toes and knees. I also like to put a few drops in a warm bath, especially during the winter. I think this feels really good, and I like the way Joint Aromatherapy Blend smells – clean and herbal, not flowery.
- Eucalyptus Radiata Essential Oil
- Ginger Essential Oil
- Juniper Essential Oil
- Peppermint Essential Oil
- Rosemary Essential Oil
Be sure to dilute this 100% pure essential oil blend in carrier oil (vegetable oil) before applying to the body in a massage; 2.5% is the maximum recommended concentration in vegetable oil. Or, if you prefer, you can also purchase this formula as a pre-diluted, ready to use on the skin, massage oil.
For use in a warm bath, add up to 5 drops of Joint Aromatherapy Blend to a tablespoon of whole-fat milk or honey as this will help the essential oils disperse into the water and decreases any chance of skin irritation. You really don’t need to add more than 5 drops; you won’t get any nicer experience, and you’ll just be wasting money…plus, your chances of skin irritation will increase if you use an excessive number of drops.
