DIY Balms and Rubs for Reduced Discomfort

Recipe 1: “Lavender and Eucalyptus Dream Balm”


  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (the potion base)
  • 10-15 drops lavender essential oil (for relaxation)
  • 10-15 drops eucalyptus essential oil (for a cool sensation)


  • In your enchanted cauldron (or a microwave-safe bowl), gently melt the coconut oil until liquid.
  • Add the lavender and eucalyptus essential oils and stir the concoction clockwise with your magic wand (or a spoon).
  • Pour the enchanted concoction into a small vial and let it solidify into a soothing balm.
  • To use, rub a small amount onto sore areas and let the magic do its work.

Recipe 2: “Ginger and Turmeric Healing Balm”


  • 1/2 cup olive oil (the potion base)
  • 1-inch fresh ginger root, grated (for warmth)
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder (for anti-inflammatory properties)
  • A sprinkle of black pepper (to activate turmeric)


  • In your enchanted cauldron (or a pot), combine the olive oil, grated ginger, turmeric, and black pepper.
  • Gently heat the potion on a low flame, allowing the herbs to infuse their magic into the oil for about 1-2 hours.
  • Strain the potion into another mystical vessel, pressing to extract all the magical essence.
  • Pour the balm into small jars and let it cool and solidify into a magical, soothing rub.

Recipe 3: “Chamomile and Rosemary Serenity Bath Bomb”


  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salt
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 2-3 tablespoons dried chamomile flowers (for relaxation)
  • 2-3 tablespoons dried rosemary (for muscle relief)
  • Witch hazel (in a spray bottle) – to moisten the mixture
  • 10-15 drops of your favorite essential oil (for a delightful fragrance)


  • In a large cauldron (or mixing bowl), combine baking soda, citric acid, Epsom salt, cornstarch, chamomile flowers, and dried rosemary.
  • Slowly moisten the mixture using witch hazel, ensuring it holds together when squeezed without being too wet.
  • Add the essential oil drops, distributing them evenly throughout the mixture.
  • Press the mixture into mold shapes of your choice (witch hats, cauldrons, stars) and let them dry for 24-48 hours.
