My dad began lifting weights and building his body when he was 16 years old. He recently celebrated his 70th birthday and has maintained a minimum of 3 days a week in the gym for over 50 years. As you can imagine, he's beginning to experience joint pain as a result of an occasional excessively heavy lift and PanAway has become his favorite post-workout blend. We've nicknamed this awesome blend "Pain Away" for its soothing effect on our aching body parts. It's a staple in my training routine as well and has definitely earned a permanent position on our shelf of everyday oils.
PanAway combines the soothing and uplifting constituents of Wintergreen, Helichrysum, Clove, and Peppermint essential oils. They are blended in one convenient bottle and ready for topical use. This blend is not suitable for use as a dietary supplement and should be diluted at least 1:1 with a carrier oil for topical application.
Post-Workout Massage Oil
15 drops PanAway Essential Oil Blend
15 drops Copaiba Essential Oil
15 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
70 drops Carrier oil (1 drop essential oil to 2 drops carrier oil)
Optional Add-Ins: Ortho Sport Massage Oil (to replace the carrier oil), Frankincense Essential Oil
Soothing Epsom Salt Bath
1-2 cups Epsom Salt
7 drops PanAway Essential Oil Blend
7 drops Copaiba Essential Oil
7 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
VERY important directions: Stir the essential oils into the epsom salt BEFORE adding the mixture to the warm bath water (helps the oils evenly disperse to avoid accidental skin irritation). Soak for at least 20 minutes.
As always, be careful to select 100% Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils to be sure you are breathing, lathering, and consuming only the safest and purest of oils. Understanding the different Grades of Oils is paramount when learning to live an essential oil-infused lifestyle.
