Homemade Ginger Cayenne Muscle Rub


What you need:

½ cup shea butter

¼ cup coconut oil

1 tsp ginger root powder

1 tsp cayenne pepper

10 drops eucalyptus essential oil


Melt the coconut oil and shea butter using a double boiler system – I always just use a mason jar, and place it right in a sauce pan with some water on medium heat.  Once they’ve melted, mix in the ginger and cayenne powder. Once the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, remove from the heat and add the drops of essential oil.  Stir, transfer to a jar, and place in the fridge to cool.

Rub on sore muscles and joints as needed!*

*I recommend testing a small amount on your hand first to make sure your skin doesn’t react to the mixture
