I said I used a teaspoonful of coconut oil, but that is a heaped spoon of hard oil. (it's always hard in this climate except for a couple months in summer) Measurement was probably closer to a tablespoon of liquid oil. I am still using it, just night and morning gently rubbed into any hurting bits. Great stuff!!

Lately I have been experiencing nasty pain down each side of my legs, coupled with chronic lower back pain I was hobbling around in misery. Came to Earth Clinic and read one of the posts about Coconut Oil being used for pain relief, I was sceptical but desperate so I used about a teaspoonful and rubbed into my lower back and the residue down my hips thighs and calves. I lay down after this thinking how can oil fix pain ?.. Within 5 minutes I was pain free!! It did'nt last past a couple of hours so I renewed the application. Same result. So far I have been rubbing in the coconut oil for three days and the effects are lasting longer each time. I am totally convinced. When I told a friend of mine who comes from the Maldives, she said it was used extensively there for massage. If you are hurting try it!! Be well and thank you Earth Clinic

My husband and I use coconut oil as a rub for aches and pains. Hubby had his right shoulder replaced 10 years ago and coconut oil keeps him pain free. I need back surgery but am too old so I use coconut oil to relieve pain. We also use it to rub arthritic knees, hips, elbows and hands. We were in Majuro for 18 months five years ago and were introduced to coconut oil by the natives when I stepped onto a red ant pile and was severely bitten all over my legs. Instant relief from coconut oil. We don't measure, we just scoop out a little and rub it on. It has to be 100% pure coconut oil to work.
