Muscle Rub

Our muscle rub is made using a proprietary blend of Arnica flowers, Cramp Bark, Prickly Ash Bark, Borage, Yarrow flowers, and Valerian Root. Safflower oil is used as the infusion base, and beeswax and an emulsifying wax are used to blend the other ingredients. A preservative is added to prohibit bacterial growth and fragrance oils are added for a more pleasing scent (valerian and cramp bark are pretty stinky!).

The ingredients in this rub have customarily been used for muscle, tendon, or ligament pain or swelling. We’ve received reports that it has proven helpful for tight or pulled muscles, strains, headache from stiff neck, and even arthritis. This blend quickly melts on contact with the skin and it spreads easily. A small amount is all that’s needed for each application. The rub can be reapplied as needed and typically lasts 4-6 hours.

About the herbs: Arnica flowers and Borage are reported to shrink the capillaries in the skin and outer muscle tissue to reduce swelling; Cramp Bark, Prickly Ash Bark, and Valerian Root are said to be warming herbs and help maintain an optimum blood flow for more rapid healing; Yarrow flowers reputedly contain a natural pain killer (salycin) and are said to help to prevent muscle spasms. Safflower oil and beeswax are used for the base of this rub.

Our rub is available in 2 ounce, 4 ounce, and 1/2 ounce plastic jars (recyclable PET). The 1/2 ounce jars are perfect to toss in a bag or purse.
