Arnica pain relieving balm - Warming
This fantastic muscle rub was created out of necessity (as many wonderful items are). I needed something to use on our sore, achy muscles and my occasional disc/sciatica flare-ups. I loved the sensation of tiger balm but I hated the petroleum base. I also wanted to increase the potency by adding penetrating pain relieving herbs. In my search to create a truly natural pain relieving ointment I built what I believe is a superior product to what is commercially available. It works, it's all natural and it's eco sensitive.
This particular balm, while very similar in function to the original "muscle salve",creates a warming effect topically from the inclusion of cayenne, mustard and ginger.
I use Arnica (Arnica montana) as well as Mexican arnica/Camphorweed (Heterotheca grandiflora) infused in oil for a minimum of 1 month as the base, and then add a blend of heating and cooling essential oils. The arnicas deeply penetrate the muscle or painful joint offering relief, while the essential oils act topically increasing blood flow and function.

Arnica montana: used for bruises, sprains, muscle soreness, and muscle spasms often associated with sports activity. As an anti-inflammatory it is also used to treat muscular aches, joint pain, and arthritis.
Camphorweed: used externally camphorweed is diminishing to pain, inflammation and fluid build up of acute injury. This plant lends itself well to use in a number of acute injuries.
Cayenne: Used for topical pain relief. Cayenne can stop muscle and joint pain by "confusing" pain transmitters. They also block pain messages from the skin.
All of my products are made with the finest ethically wildcrafted or chemical/pesticide free botanicals and oils. I craft in a way that resonates with my love for this planet, opting for small artisan batched products.
