Running a farm, having kids, and working a full time job (as a mental health therapist) leads to LOTS of stress and tension. I constantly rely on oils to help with relaxation and tension relief. One of the things that is pretty much a miracle is doTerra's Deep Blue. Sometimes I use by itself (neat) and other times I like to use it in this sore muscle rub. Its perfect for my shoulders, neck, and lower back. Our 15 year old son also uses it on his legs for growing pains. If a teenage boy asks to use something, you know it works!
¼ C olive oil
¼ cup coconut oil
15 drops Deep Blue
5 drops frankincense
Directions 1. Melt the coconut oil and beeswax in a double boiler or in a mason jar/glass measuring cup in an inch of boiling water. Once its melted take it off the heat.
2. Add the olive oil and mix gently. Allow this to cool for a minute.
3. Add the doTerra Deep Blue and Frankincense and stir again.
4. pour into 1-8oz container or 2-4 oz containers. Let cool for a few hours.
To use, apply to sore muscles and massage in. Let the oils penetrate and work their magic:)
