Today we are sharing an essential oil blend recipe from the Essential Oil 101 Guide and Recipe Book by Caroline Vencil ! What I like about this book is that she includes recipes for blends. Using the proper dilution method, your essential oils will last longer as well as achieve more surface space on the skin (making them more effective) when you utilize a carrier oil .
DIY "Liquid Morphine"
Topical Pain Reliever Essential Oil Blend Recipe
(shared with permission by the author)
For convenience, place ingredients (in order given) directly into a 10 ml rollerball bottle. You could also recycle an essential oil bottle for this recipe but will need to adjust the ratio according to the size of the bottle (and you will want to make sure that the bottle you are using is compatible (property wise) with your recipe. For instance, don't re-use a chamomile oil bottle (which is a relaxant) for a "Get Energy" essential oil blend! :)
Add to 10ml bottle:
- 10 drops marjoram essential oil
- 10 drops frankincense essential oil (This is a pricey one! The wise men brought good gifts!)
- 10 drops lemongrass essential oil
Note: There are some sources that think the oil blend might be too strong (specifically the lemongrass dosage), please read the comment section below for a varying opinion, options and an alternative recipe. I have shared what was printed in the Essential Oil Ebook but please use your own discretion. There are so many theories about safe usage of essential oils and we must all judge accordingly.
Fill the remainder of the bottle with the carrier oil of your choice such as fractionated coconut oil, almond oil, sunflower oil, etc. Make sure to cap the bottle tightly (especially if using the rollerball bottle) and your topical pain reliever blend is ready to use! For a quick label, use a sharpie and write the name of the blend directly on the glass bottle.
