Homemade Muscle Liniment

I work at a health food store, & in doing such, I am on my feet a good part of the day . . . walking, bending, stretching, lifting. Once I reached 50 I started noticing that I'm simply not as limber as I used to be. The knees are starting to be an issue so I started using Baxyl ~ liquid Hyaluronic Acid ~ which is great. But not only do we need to address our problems from the inside, but there are times when we need to add a little extra help from the outside.

This is a great liniment & is also effective for bug bites, cuts & scrapes.

You will need:

~a pint-sized jar for preparation, w/a good lid
~another slightly smaller bottle for finished product, w/a good lid
~1 pt rubbing alcohol
~1 oz echinacea flower/herb
~1 oz. goldenseal powder (organic, if possible)
~1 oz. myrrh powder (NOT essential oil)
~1/4 oz. cayenne powder


1) Put all herbs, cayenne powder & alcohol in a jar, covering the herbs by 2" above
2) Cover w/a good, tight lid & place in a warm area for 4 weeks
3) Strain out the herbs & put the liniment in a different bottle to use
4) For external use only

  1. My Dh will be so happy when I mention this post..as his new job is very tiring on his once injured arm muscles and tendons..

  2. This sounds like it might help the lower part of my leg...not sure what is going on...but muscles could use some TLC.

    Thanks for posting.
