We all have to deal with pain management at sometime or later, and so I thought I’d share with y’all my favorite go-to recipe for just that sort of issue! It’s good for muscle aches, back pain, joint pain, arthritis flare ups, and nerve pains. I’ve lifted it straight out of my own notebook! Ginger Cayenne Warming Salve 1½ cup Coconut Oil 1 Tablespoon Cayenne Powder 1 Tablespoon Ginger Root Powder 1 Tablespoon Turmeric Root Powder (some optional ingredients 1 Tablespoon Arnica flowers 1 Tablespoon Eucalyptus 1 Tablespoon Lavender 1 Tablespoon Roman Chamomile Using the base ingredients alone, or with any or all of the optional ingredients of your choice, follow basic salve making instructions (I plan on posting them soon!). Be careful not to burn the ingredients, but instead slowly infuse them at a low heat. This will insure the carrier oil will be fully infused with the herb’s nutrients and beneficial oils. To Use: Take a small bit on your fingers and massage it into the painful area gently. For chronic ailments, like arthritis, I highly suggest daily use in order to see the results fully. I would definitely avoid putting this salve on open cuts or wounds, and definitely do not use near your eyes, mouth, nose, ears, or any other sensitive bits, as it will burn!
