Menstrual Cramp Cream DIY All Natural

Menstrual Cramp Cream. – All Natural Relief.

If you’re anything like me, menstrual cramps can be debilitating. I find it difficult to accomplish anything while being in such excruciating pain. Since I refuse to take pharmaceutical drugs, I decided I needed to do something about it. All naturally. Here’s what I came up with: {UPDATED RECIPE}

Menstrual Cramp Cream DIY All Natural

What You’ll Need:

Infusing your own oil with a base of Almond or Olive. With 1 tsp each of:

Because I needed the oil right away, I did a quick infusion, using heat in my melting pot. I let it steep for about a half an hour.

Allow the infusion to cool and strain out the herbs. (A strainer over a funnel works well for this.) Reserving the oil into a storage bottle. Menstrual Cramps Infused Oil HHM

Now that the Infused Oil is complete we can start making the Cream:

  • In your melting pot add 1 tsp of Beeswax or Carnauba Wax. Allow that to melt.
  • Once the two are combined, add in 4 tsp of your infused “Menstrual Cramps” oil.
  • Poor into your storage jar and refrigerate. It won’t take long to harden.

TO USE:

Apply to lower back, bottom of your feet and on your stomach. You can apply a warm compress (towel) over the area for extra soothing.

Chamomile & Peppermint tea – mixed with honey is also helpful, as well as our Cayenne Salve, which also works on cramps instead of this salve. (it’s also warming, which helps as well!)

*Update* I ended up using the oil directly on my stomach this time around and it was wonderfully relieving. Test a small spot first to be cautious of skin reactions. I didn’t have any at all, but that’s not to say everyone will react the same.  — After reading THIS is why I included thyme in this updated recipe.

Happy Healing. ❤

      I keep mine out but some people like to store it in the fridge. It will stay solidified in the fridge but will be softer if left out. Because the product doesn’t have any preservatives, it won’t keep as long as a store-bought one. (6 months max) I make enough to last me a few months and then make a new batch. Thank you for your comment.
