Have you had enough with pain pills and OTC pain relievers with all kinds of toxins in them?
Do you want to make your own homemade natural low back pain cream – in about 10 minutes?
You’ve come to the right place.
Making your own pain relief cream/lotion/oil is much easier than you think.
Here you’ll find the 3 best recipes I’ve ever tried and tested, and let me tell you – they all work great.
You can use your homemade pain reliever for achy low back muscles, painful joints, shingles, nerve pain, fibromyalgia and so much more – without any side effects (unless you’re allergic to something, of course).
The Critical Ingredient (Found in Your Kitchen)
Here’s the one ingredient that you’ll find in all of these fabulous recipes:
Because Cayenne Pepper is a powerful, science-backed pain-blocking herb.
As you know, Cayenne Pepper is very hot and spicy.
The heat comes from capsaicin, which was found to reduce the amount of substance P, a chemical that delivers pain messages to the brain.
When you reduce the big P, the pain message no longer reaches the brain – and you feel dramatic relief.
So, make sure you have Cayenne Pepper in your kitchen, and you’re halfway ready to make your own pain relief lotion or massage oil.
Note: beware of applying Cayenne Pepper on broken skin, it’s going to hurt. Apply a small amount of any cream to test for skin irritation.
Try to use gloves when you prepare these recipes, and if you really want to look cool while you’re making them – goggles would be great. Better safe than sorry.

Long-Term Treatments for Lower Back Pain
While pain relief creams can help tremendously for lower back pain, the relief you’ll get is, unfortunately, only temporary.

2 thoughts on “3 Homemade Lower Back Pain Cream Recipes (That Work Quickly)”
I have been using essential oils for my sciatica for 7 weeks now – although I still have pain, it is so much more manageble! I use castor oil as the carrier oil, about 2 tablespoons. I add 10 drops each peppermint, genarium, ginger, lavender, eucoluptus oils. For the first time in ages I no longer wake up in the miggle of the night with unbearable pain. Essential oils are the only method I will ever use to combat my pain!
This is a great resource of recipes. Thanks for sharing them. I am pinning to find later and may try one or more of them.
Congrats for being featured at Wildcrafting Wednesday.
