It’s so nice to be treated to a massage after a long day at work, or after a long day of chores. It’s a therapeutic experience, and is pretty relaxing! Muscles tense up from stress and physical activities alike. Many of us suffer from chronic pain, back issues, and stiff aching muscles. The older you get, the harder it is to avoid. Prescription pain pills, and even over the counter pain pills are not good for you! Doctors are discovering more and more long-term side effects, even from your standard Advil. Why not use some DIY soothing massage bars for your pain instead? They are all natural, safe, and don’t have those negative side-effects. Make these at home with just a few ingredients, and gain some welcome pain relief.

Ingredients

Here’s How To Make Them

  1. Evenly distribute your coffee beans in silicone molds. You can use a fun shape like hearts, or use a regular soap mold.
  2. Using a double boiler, melt together your cocoa butter and coconut oil. Stir frequently until melted.
  3. Remove from heat and let sit for fifteen minutes in room temperature.
  4. Add in your peppermint oil and lavender oil.
  5. Mix well for a few minutes until all ingredients are well mixed.
  6. Pour your mixture over your molds, which already have your coffee beans in them. Some coffee beans will float to the top, this is perfectly normal.
  7. Place your mold and mixture into the fridge for several hours, or over night.
  8. Remove from the fridge, and gently remove your soothing massage bars.
  9. Store in a sealed glass container or Tupperware. Make sure to keep away from heat and moisture.

When you use these DIY soothing massage bars, the coffee beans gently pressing against your skin will relieve tension in achy muscles. The coconut oil and cocoa butter will melt into your skin as you massage. This will moisturize skin, as well as release the essential oils. Peppermint oil is anti-inflammatory, and will make skin feel cool. These soothing massage bars make wonderful gifts! Enjoy, and treat yourself to a massage. You deserve it!
