Ingredients for camphor oil rub

1 tablespoon finely minced fresh ginger (or 1 tablespoon powdered ginger)
1 tablespoon dried rosemary
1/4 cup olive oil
5 drops peppermint oil (optional)
2 drops camphor or wintergreen essential oil (optional)
 

Preparation for camphor oil rub

1. Whirr the ginger and rosemary in a clean coffee grinder until very fine and blended.

2. Mix the olive oil and the peppermint and camphor oils together in a small bowl.

3. Blend in the rosemary-ginger mixture.

4. Have someone rub the fragrant mixture into the painful area of your back and cover with a piece of flannel or an old T-shirt. Then put a heating pad over the cloth for 15 to 20 minutes and rest while the rubs soak in. You can double the recipe for larger areas. Wash it off during a soak in the tub, if you like.
