Muscle Mend Oil Herbal Blend is an herbal blend used to make a massage oil. The herbs work together to relieve pain and speed healing of damaged bones and muscle. The oil produces a warming effect which penetrates the skin and helps promote healing of tendons, ligaments, joints, muscles, and bone. This oil also helps relieve inflammation and pain. This is a great oil to make and use for fractures, broken bones, pulled muscles, and even arthritic conditions. This oil also works great as a muscle rub for tired and achy muscles
Please make sure and consult a physician after injury as this oil is meant to supplement the treatment from a physician.
This blend includes: Arnica Flowers, Calendula Flowers, St. John's Wort, Comfrey Leaf, Eucalyptus Leaf, Peppermint Leaf, Ginger Root, and Cayenne Pepper 90K HU.
This oil is for EXTERNAL USE ONLY.
Fill a glass mason jar 2/3 full with herb blend. Fill the rest of the jar with extra virgin olive oil. Mix well to get out air pockets and add more oil as needed to fill within 2 inches of top of jar. Put the lid on and place in a stock pot. Add water to halfway up the side of the jar and simmer on low for 3 days. The water should be hot but not boiling. You may need to add water to the pot as some evaporates. Be sure and add HOT WATER or else the jar may burst. I like to take the jar out and shake it every day to help mix it up well. When finished, strain out the oil.
ALTERNATE METHOD, NOT USING HEAT: This is a better option for those with gas stoves. You would not want to leave a gas stove running overnight unattended. Just let the mix infuse in the oil for three weeks in a cupboard, shaking daily. It takes longer, but works just as well!
Rub into the skin liberally several times a day. It is good to massage it in, taking several minutes to do so, as the warmth of the massage will help the oil penetrate more effectively. Store oil in a cool and dark place.
