Pain Relief Slime: a Soothing Recipe for Hand Pain

| Recipes, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Self Care, Wellness

Do you ever get tired achy hands or do hand exercises for your arthritis or carpal tunnel? If so, you need to try my Pain Relief Slime. 

Have you ever played with a batch of slime? We have a young kiddo in our house, so slime is a regular craft project on the weekend agenda. We have several batches in tubs sitting around at any given time and I really enjoy playing with it.

It took me about two minutes of rolling the cool, smooth blob through my hands before I connected the slime with a soothing, potentially therapeutic experience, which is how I came up with the idea for Pain Relief Slime. You will find the printable recipe below.

If you know someone who loves making slime, have them make this for you, or make your own- it’s super easy and pain relief slime provides a great, calming hand exercise experience when you’re done.

 

You can create your own batch of pain relief slime with just a few ingredients:

I found this fun kit online, too.

Ingredients
  • 6 ounces Clear Glue Non-Toxic Washable Elmer’s School Glue
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Food Coloring and Glitter optional and based on preference
  • 5-7 Drops Essential Oil for this recipe I used RMO Pain Relief
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Saline Solution Active ingredients should read sodium borate and boric acid. Add slowly. Use only enough to bring the slime together.
  • 1/2 squirt coconut oil just to coat hands for first knead
Instructions
  1. Add glue to mixing bowl.
  2. Sprinkle baking soda into mixture and stir to combine.
  3. Add essential oils. I use 5-7 drops.
  4. Add food coloring and glitter as desired
  5. Add saline solution very slowly a little bit at a time and stir quickly to form the slime! 
  6. Stir until the slime comes away from the bowl and sticks to itself.
  7. Add a little coconut oil to your hands for when you first pull it from the bowl. This will keep it from sticking.
  8. Now, work the slime through your hands for a pain relieving, soothing, aromatic experience.
Recipe Notes

Make sure to really stir your slime and do not add too much saline- it will make your slime tough! Once the slime pulls away from the sides and bottom of the bowl, it's ready to pick up and knead.

The essential oil is pretty strong at first, just so you know. Click here to get access to my FREE Resource Library and a list of additional slime recipes.

TIP: Add a few drops of oil to your hands (we use this gel form) before picking up the slime. This will help with the initial stickiness of the slime. As you knead it will become less and less sticky. As you slowly knead it and roll it through your hands you will experience the additional soothing benefits of the pain-relieving essential oils. You can store your slime in a reusable container!

Pain Relief Slime: a Soothing Recipe for Chronic Pain

See how easy it is to make Pain Relief Slime? You can make it as plain or as fancy as you’d like.

You can store your pain relief slime in a sealable container, just be sure to wash your hands before each use. I add a couple drops of pain relief with each subsequent use for added effect.

It feels amazing if you refrigerate it a bit before wrapping it around your hands. AMAZING!

Let me know if you give this a try. I would love to see pictures, too! Be sure to share them on my Facebook Page!
