Easy to make Sore Muscle Liniment

Updated on December 16, 2009

Easy to make at home

 This herbal muscle rub liniment can be made easily at home.

The ingredients are found at pharmacies and health food outlets.

This is a very old recipe of a great liniment for sore and tired muscles.

Oil of Camphor 7 parts

Oil of Cloves 2 parts

Oil of Wintergreen 3 parts

Oil of Eucalyptus 3 parts

Oil of Origanum 3 parts (optional)

Mix the above amounts of each herb oil in a glass bottle. Use for soreness, swelling, pain and stiffness.

This liniment is also excellent as a chest rub for a person with the flu or cold. Keep chest warm after applying.

Shake well before applying.

      I like this. Your hub is really straightforward. Do you recommend that the oil be applied directly or should cotton wraps be soaked and then applied?

      Found you on the first page when I did a search for liniments for sore muscles. Most of the others were for horses. Yours seemed to be the only one for humans. Have a friend with sore stiff muscles from running 12 miles in a competition of some sort and sent your recipe to him. Anyway, was surprised when I clicked on it and it was a fellow hubber!

      Was glad to find this recipe and now I'l wait for word to see what he thinks of it. Going to vote you up and useful cuz I may just make it for myself one of these days too. Going to share this with my followers too.
