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.

I bought this for my mom and I to use since we constantly experience neck and foot pain and this completely relieved us. This will continue to be my go to for any soreness or muscle pains!

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!

I have literally tried every muscle balm out there. This is the ONLY one that actually works! It smells good too and the scent doesn’t last too long. I highly recommend and will be ordering many more!

Feels Great, Smells Even Better

Nice, relaxing, deep warmth; gives good temporary relief from my neuropathy, always swipe a little under my nose, too, for a lovely mom’s-vapo-rub flashback.

It’s seriously heaven!!

My massage therapist originally used this on my back and oh my goodness this is the best muscle rub ever! I have degenerative disc disease and have had back surgery and also get muscle spasms and this salve works wonders! It completely relaxes me I had to buy it myself! The only thing I’ll ever need!

I received a sample of this stuff with an order. This rub works so incredibly good. I have chronic back pain from having 3 epidurals, and my lower back burns so bad. A pea size amount of this stuff and my pain is gone. It’s literally been a life saver for me!! I just ordered a big bottle of it!
