Here is a wonderful pain butter recipe that can be used on a variety of aches and discomforts. Plus this essential oil blend for pain is very nourishing to skin.

I keep this recipe simple using a no-heat method and instead utilize a hand mixer to blend this recipe together. The completed butter is creamy and melts very easily into skin.
