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 - All Natural Relief


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

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.


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.


What do you use to ease menstrual discomfort?

I recommend Mountain Rose Herbs for all of your herbal healing needs!
