A Great Essential Oil to Blend with Lavender for Sore Muscles After a Workout
Juniper Berry and Lavender essential oils are both incredible choices for pain relief.
They both naturally calm inflammation, and help tense, cramped muscles relax, so your movements feel like they can flow more smoothly and naturally.
In fact, Juniper Berry essential oil is so effective for this, that I often include it in blends to soothe joint pain—such as in fingers or knees.
And Lavender adds a gentle, skin-loving presence to this blend.
When I use essential oils for my sore muscles, I like to spend a little time in self massage. The essential oils themselves are so therapeutic, and when we combine them with the healing power of touch the relief can affect us even more deeply.
Here’s a blend with Juniper and Lavender, which you can use for sore muscles after a workout.
Juniper & Lavender for Sore Muscles After a Workout
- 1 oz (30 ml) jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis)
- 10 drops Juniper Berry essential oil (Juniperus communis)
- 8 drops Lavender essential oil (Lavandula angustifolia)
Make this blend in a 1 oz (30 ml) glass bottle. Combine the jojoba and essential oils, and shake gently.
Then use it to massage your sore muscles after a workout!
