freaking love this product.

Training for an Ironman comes with lots of aches and pains especially when you are over 40. I use this salve almost every night and even keep a small container in my purse. I love the smell, love the cooling menthol, and it seems to help with the pain that I have. I do really try to massage it into my muscles which helps. It's pleasant on the hands too. I don't feel like I have to wash it off after applying. Great product.

house extracted arnica

the use of arnica for bruising, inflammation, pains, sprains and other injuries dates back to 16th-century germany and is still a staple in muscle rub formulas today.

strong arnica extracts are hard to come by. we learned this pretty early in the development of the muscle rub and decided to run our extractions in-house to keep potency at consistently higher levels than what's available. we use a low heat oil infusion and press to extract.

if you find a little pant fiber in your muscle rub, it's from the arnica extract. arnica flowers have very few fibers that sneak through the filtering process.

pain, inflammation, muscle tension and soreness are guaranteed for an athlete who trains often. the muscle rub is made to help keep inflammation down and supports soft tissue repair. use before, during and after training as needed to support blood flow and mobility and calm pain and inflammation. we hand these samples out at pretty much every event. so if you have seen us at ironman, BWR, blaze trails, etc, you probably got a sample of this!

works wonders

I had a deep pain in my left shoulder and was barely able to move my arm without hurting. This muscle rub worked great and within the hour my pain was mostly gone, and my ability to move fully was returned.

Turbo pain relief!

This ointment gives the fastest pain relief I've ever experienced with any cream, ointments or lotions that I have used in the past. I have arthritis in my neck and this is the only thing that gives me actual full relief! I have recommended it to everyone I know and will be purchasing backup soon. Thank you for such an amazing product!

Amazingly effective

I got a sample of this at a race and I could not believe how well a small amount worked. Use it for all my sore muscles and love the all-natural ingredients and pleasant scent. It’s all I will use from now on!
