Relief Rub - Extra Strength Medicinal Salve for Sore Joints, Muscles, Inflammation


Throughout 2019, we had our most active year participating in local artisan markets, farmers markets and regional Ohio events, and by far our most popular product is our Relief Rub. We asked every curious visitor to rub a dollop on what hurts and walk around for 15-minutes, and we were blessed to find most returned because it really helped them. This formula has been refined over the years and is the best we can make with legal medicinal plants, extracts, and essential oils.‡

This potent medicinal balm is effective for topical use on sore muscles, tender joints, and a variety of aches and pains. Our quick acting extra strength Relief Rub is versatile in its applications, as it can be used to ease tension, relieve stress and anxiety, ease headaches and migraines, support the body's anti-inflammatory response to joint swelling and discomfort, and can be used to support a range of ailments listed below.‡

Our message is simple... Rub this on what hurts and thank us later.

We start our Relief Rub with a blend of powerful medicinal plants such as organic Arnica flower, Comfrey leaf, St. John's Wort, Ginger root and Willow bark (the original aspirin) in an oil blend with natural Beeswax, and finish with a range of powerful essential oils and plant extracts like Menthol, Camphor, Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Helichrysum, Turmeric, Frankincense and more.

We always focus on medicinal strength, so a little goes a long way. External use only. Keep out of eyes.
