If you are one of the few people still sticking to their new year's resolutions and are finding that pushing your body has resulted in aching muscles or sore joints, this homemade muscle rub will be a life-saver. From Julia at the Free People blog, the soothing potion is also all natural.
Consisting of ingredients like eucalyptus oil (perfect to celebrate Australia Day with), cayenne pepper, ginger root powder, shea butter and coconut oil, the muscle rub is also a fun project for the DIY-obsessed. The pain-alleviating and inflammation-reducing recipe is great for moisturizing the skin with after your run or physical activity, post-shower.
To ensure you don't react to the mixture, the blogger suggests testing it on a patch of skin first.
