Do you have ligament or tendon pain in your wrists, elbow, shoulder, or knees? Then you MUST try this homemade ligament and tendon pain rub which is really great for calming tendonitis!
Confession time! I spend way too much time hunched over my laptop and my iPhone. I guess this is not much of a confession since you all already knew this about me! And while I love being with all of you and answering all of your questions online, it sure does take a toll on my wrists, elbow, and shoulder! I think I lovingly call my pain: iPhone thumb…or laptop elbow. Many of you probably just call it carpal tunnel or tendonitis. I really know what it is called. All I know is that this ligament and tendon pain rub I made really helps! So what’s my recipe for this blend? Read on!
Homemade Ligament and Tendon Pain Rub
- 4 drops Vetiver essential oil*
- 3 drops Copaiba essential oil*
- 5 drops Lavender essential oil*
- 5 drops Lemongrass essential oil*
- 8 drops Wintergreen essential oil*
- 30 drops carrier oil (I used sweet almond oil)
I remove the label from an empty essential oil bottle (using lemon oil as my ‘goo-gone’!) and then fill it with all of the essential oils from the above ingredient list. Then add the carrier oil. Place a roll-on fitment (you can order these directly from Young Living) on the top and then roll between your palms to blend the oils together gently.

I apply as needed and can feel results immediately! Why did I use these particular essential oils? They are listed in my pocket reference guide as being good options for tendon and ligament repetitive injuries. As with any recipe I post, these ingredients are a starting point for your research. Use what you have and add additional oils as you are able to acquire them.
