I was looking at Rocky Mountain Oil’s site earlier today and I noticed that they have a new line of products for skin and body care called Tohi. This new line is formulated with natural ingredients as well as essential oils. The one product that caught my eye is the Tohi Complete Relief Tension + Muscle Rub cream. My husband works hard and at the end of the day his neck and shoulders are usually tight and in need of some relaxation. So, a cream made with essential oils sounds great. Let me show you what I found out about this new cream. It looks promising and I’m excited to purchase it and use it.
What Others Say about Tohi Complete Relief
First, I look at the reviews and no surprise here, they are all positive. Several mention the fact that the cream is warm. That’s a good thing because it means the natural ingredients in this cream are working. Only one review says the cream hurt their skin. With essential oils though, everyone’s tolerance for a particular oil is different. Where one person can tolerate an essential oil at 10% dilution, another can only tolerate a 1% dilution ratio. But, the rest of the reviews say the cream worked for them and helped with relaxing tense muscles and for calming sore muscles.
Tohi Complete Relief Uses
So I’m thinking this cream will definitely help my husband’s tight shoulders and neck. And it might even help him when he has a sore back. One reviewer mentioned trying the cream on her mother’s arthritic hands.
Rocky Mountain Oils says to use the cream topically on affected areas up to 3 times a day.
Essential Oils Used
- Ylang Ylang
In looking over this list of ingredients, I know that clove and ylang ylang are two powerful essential oils that can cause some skin sensitivity. I believe it’s the peppermint and the camphor that add to the warming sensation. I also know that both peppermint and chamomile have natural pain relieving properties since peppermint can be used for headaches and chamomile can be used for teething.
All in all, this is a great list of essential oils. Not only does this cream help ease tense and sore muscles, the smell also helps you to unwind and de-stress.

Please refer to this dilution chart when diluting your essential oils. It is recommended that you dilute any essential oil that you use regardless of brand. Essential oils are strong and very potent and many can and do cause skin sensitivity, especially with children.
Plant Therapy has this awesome dilution chart you can reference.
For babies, dilute at 0.5% or even 0.25% (half of the 0.5% amount. So, use 3 drops of your essential oil and dilute it in 4 teaspoons of carrier oil for 0.5% or 8 teaspoons of carrier oil for 0.25%.
Use the 1% dilution ratio for daily use. Mix 3 essential oil drops for every 2 teaspoons of carrier oil.
If you need a stronger dose for a short period of time, use the 5% dilution ratio by adding 15 essential oil drops for every 2 teaspoons of carrier oil.
For really, really severe situations, you can up it to 10 percent dilution ratio for small acute areas of concern. For this, you would mix 15 essential oil drops for every teaspoon of carrier oil.
Recommended Essential Oil Brands
Because essential oils have therapeutic properties that make them so useful in our lives, you want to make sure that the essential oils you purchase are pure and contain all of the healing components that you are looking for. Unfortunately, there are some unscrupulous companies out there that sell diluted oils or even fake oils that will do you harm if you use them for therapeutic purposes.
The companies that I recommend and who consistently receive positive reviews on their essential oils are these:
