Homemade “Icy Hot”

This is not a new creation of mine, in fact, I’ve been using it for several months now. However, I had yet to share anything about it here on my blog. I use my version of  homemade “Icy Hot” every time before I go for a run. It is simple to concoct, is effective, and contains all organic ingredients. It’s fun to do some DIY activities!

Ingredients:

Organic Extra Virgin or Virgin Coconut Oil

Peppermint Essential Oil

Sweet Birch Essential Oil

Wintergreen Essential Oil

I basically eye-balled all of these measurements. I started with the coconut oil as a base, then added about 15-20 drops of these 3 essential oils. Coconut Oil is solid at about 75 degrees fahrenheit, so to mix all of these essential oils with the coconut oil, I place my small container of oils in front of a space heater just to slightly liquify it.

The reasoning for using these oils is that they combat fatigue, cramps, act as a “pick-me-up”, and aid in alertness.

I basically rub a big glob of the mixture over both of my entire legs before suiting up in my running tights. I find that it gives me a little pep in my step even before stretching because of the sensation from the different mints. It also makes you smell fresh and minty before going out and getting sweaty and stinky. 🙂

  3. What size is the base of coconut oil?

    • I just estimated it. You can start with a few dollops of coconut oil, then add the baking soda until it’s your desired consistency for a deodorant. Good [email protected]
