Lovely Recipe for Arthritis
Andrea Butje has amazing blends that she shares and here we’ve shared her Arthritis Oil. I’ve found her blend to be the most effective yet.
“Hi from Andrea Butje,
Arthritis can be an acute kind of pain that we want to take care of quickly, but it’s also ongoing.
Black Pepper essential oil is so helpful in cases like this! It steps in and offers quick relief, and then it hangs around for a while to be sure the pain doesn’t “sneak back in.”
In this recipe for arthritis oil, we’re blending Black Pepper and other pain relieving essential oils into a base of Trauma Oil. Trauma Oil is a skin nourishing, pain reducing oil made by infusing three herbs (arnica, calendula, and St. John’s wort) in a base of carrier oil—usually that’s olive oil.
Trauma Oil is very therapeutic all by itself for conditions that affect the joints and muscles, and when we blend soothing essential oils into it, we can take the pain relief even further. (Another great carrier for joint pain is kombo butter.” You can read about it here!)
Black Pepper Arthritis Oil by Andrea Butje
- 1 oz (30 ml) Trauma Oil
- 5 drops Black Pepper (Piper nigrum)
- 4 drops Juniper Berry (Juniperus communis)
- 3 drops Lemon (Citrus limon)
- 6 drops Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
Make your blend in a 1 oz (30 ml) glass bottle. Just pour your Trauma Oil into the bottle, then add your essential oils drop by drop. Screw on the lid, shake gently, and you’re done!
Massage your hands and sore joints with this blend several times a day—as often as you need the relief.
