This muscle pain reliever by Heather of Mommypotamus relieves the pain of achy muscles, arthritis, menstrual cramps, nerve pain and more.  How does it work?  Well we have a peptide in our body called Substance P.  Among other things, Substance P transmits pain signals from the nerves to the central nervous system.

One of the main ingredients in the body rub is cayenne.  Cayenne contains a compound called capsaicin which blocks the activity of Substance P.  So cayenne is a perfect ingredient for a pain-relief rub.  It also heats the muscles which can contribute to pain relief.

It’s an easy  recipe to follow, and there are helpful photographs. View the complete recipe here:
