After much trial-and-error, I created a chest rub (or salve, whichever you call it) that is as soft as the popular "V" brand, without nasty ingredients like petroleum. (Hard pass.) I cannot tell you how many recipes I tried that ended up hard like lip balm. You shouldn't have to dig your fingernails into chest rub to get it out. That is the worst, am I right?!

Sore Muscle Rub is just one of the recipes included in our "TLC in a Jar" gift set. You can view the complete essential oil DIY project by clicking on the link above and you will find the individual recipes at the bottom of this post.
