For a long time, I’ve used Arnica gel as a pain treatment when I have a sore back or cricky neck, or any other pain or soreness. I’ve always loved it. Last night I saw a Facebook post on one of my oily Facebook groups that started the wheels in my brain to turning! An oily friend mentioned that she used pure aloe vera gel and added oils to it to make a pain cream. I thought, “I can do that with Arnica!”
The recipe is:
• 1 tube Arnica gel (or roughly 3 oz aloe vera gel)
• 15 drops Lemongrass
• 15 drops PanAway
• 15 drops Peppermint
• 15 drops Valor
Mx well and spoon into a glass container. I like to use small mason jars!

It is true that I have found less need for OTC medicines, but you have to make choices that are right for your family. Another choice I’ve made is to exclusively use Young Living Essential Oils. I believe they are 100% pure without any synthetic additives. That’s huge to me! I have read a lot of material on different essential oil companies and Young Living is what I have chosen. If you choose to use essential oils, I encourage you to do some research and choose the brand that you believe in.
