2-Ingredient Homemade Massage Oil For Arthritis And Joint Pain Relief

Joint pain is both painful and debilitating, so we recommend you to try this effective natural remedy against rheumatic arthritis and joint pain. It also improves blood circulation.

Aside from providing instant pain relief, this oil is made of two ingredients only – olive oil and red chili peppers. Those chili peppers have been proven very effective in the treatment of myositis, rheumatism, neuralgia, radiculitis, and joint pain.

What this oil does is stimulate the regenerative processes in the skin, dilate the capillaries, and improve blood circulation to the surface of the skin.

Homemade Massage Oil Recipe

What you need:

– 2 cups olive oil
– 10 fresh red chili peppers
– 1 liter Glass Jar


  1. Clean the peppers by washing them and then take out the stems. 
  2. Grind the peppers in a food processor. You’ll get an approximately one cup of finely chopped mixture.
  3. Transfer the mixture into a clean glass jar and add the olive oil.
  4. Leave it in a cool dark place.
  5. Strain the mixture with a gauze after 7 days.

Instead of throwing away the leftover ground pepper from the mixture, use it as a spice instead. The oil, on the other hand, can be used for massaging the painful parts of your body.

This treatment can be used by rubbing the oil into your skin several times a day or whenever you have joint pains or pain in other parts of your body.

Wear some tights or warm socks after rubbing the oil in the affected part. It’s important for you to cover other parts of your body to make it warm, depending on what area is hurt such as your arms, neck, or back. Applying the oil will cause a burning and tingling feeling on your skin. You don’t have to worry because these feelings are tolerable, relaxing, even enjoyable, and do not cause injuries.

You can gradually reduce the frequency of this oil massage over time. The procedure can be performed once a week after a month or two of using this treatment or whenever you feel your joint is aching. Always keep the oil away from direct sunlight.
