Found this while hopping the net...

I'm wandering the net entering giveaways which I don't do that often anymore. I'm just to swamped with my Usborne Books business, 2 blogs, etc and I just haven't seen that much that I feel I "gotta" have. I did find this awesome recipe that I definitely hafta have - I'm afraid I won't find it again.


I found this recipe on a darling blog I haven't been to before (can you imagine?). Kylie is a freelance natural health writer and the found of Everblossom - a blog with all kinds of great posts, recipes and thoughts like the "health benefits of coffee" (she's a coffee-a-holic), how to "brighten" someones day - with 17 ideas! And here is my new favorite - with my fibromyalgia I'd probably burn through a pot a week!

1/2 cup shea butter
1 T beeswax pastilles (can be omitted but balm will melt without it if it gets too warm, keep in a cool location - not in your purse!)
ginger essential oil
peppermint essential oil

1. Melt the shea butter in a double boiler until all chunks have disappeared.
Remove from the heat as quickly as possible to avoid cooking away nutrients.
It doesn't take long!
2. Stir in 10 drops of each oil.
3. Pour mixture into a metal or glass container. Can use a small tin or a mason
4. Let cool - stick it in the fridge or freezer to make it set up faster.
5. Rub into achy muscles.
    If you need it stronger melt down and add 5 more drops of each oil until it's the 
    strength you like. You can get all ingredients from Mountain Rose Herbs per Kylie.

    This recipe is from everblossom.net
