Home Spa: Salt Scrub for Muscle Pain

Mix castor oil with sea salt, and add a few drops of lavender oil. Mix so that it is not too oily nor too grainy. Rub on sore places, wet or dry, until skin reddens slightly. Shower off when done.
Castor oil, beloved of boxers, has been called the hand of God because it can reach into muscle knots.
I like a softer, unmilled sea salt but any will do.
Choose lavender for calming or eucalyptus for cold or invigoration. Pettigrain is nice. Experiment. Use vanilla in moderation if you don’t yet have essential oils.
It’s good for the skin too.

  1. I was using jamaican black caostr oil for 3 years, and my locks grew tremedously. The one thing I didn’t like was the heaviness of the oil, and I was washing my hair every week because it was like dirt and odors was just sticking to my locks. I found the fountain liquid hair food in New York in the Summer, and now you couldn’t pay me to use the other one. It is way lighter, smells good my hair smells like toothpaste all the time, and I love the tingling, fresh sensation it gives, just like mouthwash. The Fountain black caostr oil is not greasy at all, and my scalp stays cleaner longer. I go to my loctician every month now to retwist my regrowth which seems to have doubled. I introduced her to it, and she uses it on her customers as a hot oil treatment. I lotion with it too, especially my feet and it has helped the tough skin on my heels, I love this oil!
