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 injury 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 consistenty 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 little fibers that sneak through the filtering process.

pain, inflammation, muscle tension and soreness is guaranteed for an athlete who trains often. the muscle rub is made to help keep inflmmation 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!

Beautiful muscle rub

I use this on myself, and it really takes away the tension in my neck and shoulders. Sometimes it can even get rid of my headache takes tension away so well.
I also use on my daughters legs ( she has dystonia) and it seems to bring her some relief.

I was hooked from the sample roots sent with my cocoa ashwaghanda . It’s so rich and poison -free. Works very well . I rub it on my neck and chest everyday. Thank you for making such a quality product that goes a long way with just a dab.
