Are you looking for something to soothe tension?
Arn’t we all? I’ve been a mad scientist lately trying to developing the best blend to soothe sore muscles and achy joints ever when I came across The Paleo Moma’s Pain Relief Rub. Jackie has it down! The best part is you can customize this blend to suit your own needs.
As we know not all essential oils work the same for every body. Just like our yoga practice we are all snowflakes and there is no static ideal. Play and experiment with these blends, find what works best for you.

Why a Roller Bottle Blend?
Jackie developed these recipes for a natural rub. While sometimes I like a cream which provides targeted comfort to tired and sore joints and muscles, more often then not I prefer the convenience of a roller bottle. So I’ve adapted the volumes for a 10ml roller bottle.
Known as the “tree of life,” Arborvitae is majestic in size and abundant in therapeutic benefits. Arborvitae essential oil has a high content of tropolones, a chemical compound found in Aborvitae, which protects against environmental and seasonal threats, has powerful purifying properties, and promotes healthy cell function.
- Supports a healthy immune system
- Protects against environmental and seasonal threats
- Promotes healthy cell function
- Powerful cleansing and purifying agent

- Since this recipe is a “create-your-own” it’s very easy to “play” with the ingredients. You will feel a LIGHT tingling with this, but it’s not intense. So, if you want a STRONG tingle, then use more of your Ache-Comforting oils and less of one of the other oils.
