How to Store:

I like to use a small mason jar or glass jar to put the cream in. The wide mouth 4 oz jars work great. The container should have a tight fitting lid.

I try to always keep this on hand. From growing pains to working out, this DIY Sore Muscle Cream is awesome!

How long will homemade muscle rub last?

This DIY cream will last up to 6 months. It is important to keep it out of direct sunlight or heat.

Also, make sure hands are clean and the cream stays free of any debris. This will extend the life of the homemade muscle rub.

The cream does not have any artificial preservatives so it will not last as long as store bought products.

Tips for Success:

  • Melt the ingredients in intervals. In order to prevent burning, make sure to melt in 30 second intervals. Stir in between each interval until completely melted.
  • Whip the mixture. Allow the mixture to partially harden and then whip the mixture. This will create the perfect texture for this cream. This step is important to ensure the final product is the desired consistency.
  • Microwave or Double Boiler. The microwave makes this DIY super easy. However, you can opt to use a double boiler if you prefer. Either method is great and the results will turn out wonderfully.

Try this easy DIY for natural pain relief cream. It is so easy to make and works great on achy muscles. I think you will love this product and the absence of chemicals and other ingredients typically found in store bought creams.

  1. What can I use in place of beeswax? I am extremely allergic to all bee/wasp stings and have reacted to another cream made with beeswax. Thanks!

  2. I love this pain rub and so do my friends I gifted it with. I think I read that it was best to keep it in the fridge. Is that true? It is so hard if you do that. Can I just store it in a cupboard?

    1. I don’t keep mine in the fridge. You have to whip the coconut oil for awhile (15-20 minutes) to get it fluffy but it stays that way without being kept in the fridge. Thanks!

  3. I am very allergic to coconut in any form due to my nut allergy.Is there something I can use to replace it? Thanks. Vicki

    1. Vicki – You could use either shea butter or jojoba oil. I think either one of these would work great for the muscle cream. Thank you!

  4. Would this be more like a salve or do I need to add water to make it more of a cream-like texture? Also, would I need an emulsifying agent as well as beeswax? Thanks!
