Universal Relief Liniment - Extra Strength Topical for Instant Relief of Pain and Inflammation of Sore Muscles and Joints


Universal Relief Liniment is a powerful topical remedy containing a potent blend of medicinal herbs, spices, and resins, which was inspired by a 7th generation grandfather, Dr. J.R. Miller, who devoted his life to tinctures and liniments meant to help ailments from croup, to pain, to cholera. This old-fashioned topical formula aids pain, inflammation, swelling, and bruising from an acute injury and flare-ups from old ailments. Simultaneously warming and cooling, it quickly eases pain from sore muscles, sprains, strains, breaks, dislocations, arthritis, lumbago, gout, varicose veins, sciatica, joint pain, and muscle spasms.

The combination of herbs and spices encourages increased blood flow to sore spots and acts as a counterirritant to bring relief to stubborn aches and pains. Works very quick and can be reapplied when needed or combined with our Relief Rub salve for extended pain management. Ideally, since liniments work so fast and tend to relieve discomforts very fast, and therefore do not last longer than a few minutes, it's best to apply the liniment and then wait one minute and cover the affected area in Relief Rub for long lasting effect.‡
