(Intro music) – Hi, I’m Andrea Butje
from Aromahead Institute. In today’s video we’re gonna to make a wonderful oil for reducing muscle pain. So let’s get started. We’re going to use a
one ounce glass bottle. This one is a really
beautiful cobalt blue. And the base of it is
what we call trauma oil. This is an herbally infused oil. It has three different herbs in it. It has Arnica and St.
John’s Wort and Calendula. And all of them contribute to the anti-inflammatory actions and also help reduce pain. So I’m gonna fill in my one ounce jar with the trauma oil to get started. And you can just pour. This is a four ounce bottle and it would work for me to just pour directly into this bottle. But not everyone’s hands are steady, so frequently we just use a beaker. And I’ll pour some of the trauma oil into the beaker. And you can see what a
beautiful color it is. It’s got this great sort of red glow. And then I’m just gonna pour this directly into the bottle. That way I don’t spill and if my hands aren’t absolutely steady, it doesn’t matter. So I’m gonna fill this up. It’s about 30 Mls. I’m gonna leave some room at the top for the essential oils. So for the essential
oils in the blend we’re using Lavender, Peppermint
and Black Spruce. And I’m gonna use ten drops of Lavender and five drops of the other two. So I’m just gonna put the bottle right over the top. And usually it comes kinda out the side, see the drops kinda coming out. And there’s ten. And don’t worry if you get eleven or nine, no big deal. And then I’m gonna put five drops of Peppermint. The Peppermint is amazing and really contributes to the pain relieving properties. All three oils do, but Peppermints really the most potent oil in here. We’re gonna get just five drops. There we go. And then lastly I’m adding Black Spruce, which from an aromatic perspective is gonna really ground the blend and give it sort of a pine foresty kind of smell. And we’ll just do five drops. There we go. Oh, I got six. Alright we just changed it to six. (Hums) Smells so good. So I’m just gonna put, whoops, I’m just gonna put the top on, the right top. And just give it a little shake like that. That’s really all it takes. And now you can apply this blend to anywhere where you’re really feeling very sore. And it’s very relieving. I like to use it every couple of hours. And I hope it helps you too. Alright take care. Bye.
