Pain medication have taken the medical world by a storm, but their effectiveness and impact on our bodies is more than harmful.
And while pain may manifest in many forms, such as soreness, aches, chronic pain and more, all those types can be managed by using all-natural ingredients.
Meds such as ibuprofen are likely to lead to further health complications while eliminating the pain. For that, choosing a natural way to treat pain may be your best take at stopping it.
Below, we will discuss how a spicy and beneficial salve, made up of the most nurturing ingredients, can significantly reduce or eliminate pains of all sorts.
Here is what it is composed of:
1. Coconut oil
Coconut oil is a great carrier oil when it comes to salves. Its benefits are plenty and include skin hydration, pain reduction, and immunity boost.
Ginger is amazing for treating chronic pain and has been used in many soothing forms in ancient medicine. It prevents arthritis and related pains, and it keeps the body active and revived at all times.
Another popular anti-pain ingredient is cayenne. In fact, cayenne eliminates substance P, responsible for pain triggers. Cayenne is especially successful with eliminating back and spinal pain as well.
4. Lavender and peppermint essential oil
Both these oils have strong anti-inflammatory properties, which can reduce the pain efficiently. Lavender and peppermint oil are particularly efficient when it comes to eliminating neck and muscle pain.
Potent salve recipe for a painless life
Below, find a detailed recipe on how you can make the most of these ingredients and expel pain once and for all.
The recipe is homemade, natural and is made with beeswax, another powerful ingredient as well. It will only take 15 minutes to prepare it, but it will surely deliver lasting effects as well.
Here is what you need:
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, extra-virgin, unrefined
- 1/4 cup beeswax, grated or pasted
- 1 tablespoon ginger powder
- 1 tablespoon cayenne powder
- 10 drops lavender oil
- 10 drops peppermint oil
- Mason jar with wide opening and a lid
In a saucepan, combine coconut oil and beeswax. Melt the two on medium to low heat. Next, throw in the cayenne and ginger powder and mix all ingredients well.
Set saucepan aside and let it cool down for a bit. Finally, add lavender and peppermint essential oils and stir well.
Transfer the salve to a wide-opening Mason jar and let it set well. As soon as thickens, seal well and keep it in a dark and cool room.
Do not use the salve orally, and never apply it on the face, too. Last, but not least, don’t use the remedy on open wounds, scratches or cuts.
How to use it?
Use massage-like movements and apply on your muscles, joints or wherever the pain stems from. This may be a simple procedure to do daily, but pain-deteriorating one as well.
