Muscle Rub.

This salve really does wonders for hard-working muscles.

Massage into stressed, stiff, and aching shoulders, neck, back, or feet.

{This is not recommended for pregnant women.}

1 teaspoon lanolin

1 1/2 ounces extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 ounce beeswax, shaved or grated

2-3 drops arnica essential oil

6 drops ginger essential oil

3-4 drops lemon essential oil

1. In an ovenproof glass measuring cup with a pour spout, combine the lanolin, olive oil, and beeswax. Place the cup in a hot-water bath until the wax is nearly melted. At this point, remove the cup from the water bath and stir the mixture with a clean utensil to evenly mix the ingredients.

2. Let the mixture cool. When the mixture begins to harden around the edges of the cup, add the essential oils and stir to incorporate them.

3. Pour into a sterile wide mouthed jar and allow to cool before capping. Store in a cool, dark place for several months.
