Active Muscle Rub is a softer consistency than our other balms, ideal for massaging sore and aching muscles. It contains arnica oil, shown to be effective in relieving osteoarthritic pain1 and reducing bruising2. Organic thistle oil, sweet almond oil, shea butter and beeswax are infused with the warming organic essential oils of black pepper and ginger. We also add organic Rosemary Antioxidant oil to prolong the balm’s shelf life.
Active Muscle Rub is available in 15g, 25g and 50g glass jars. We also offer a taster in a 5g sample jar for you to try before you invest in a larger size.
Please recycle the jars in your household recycling, or you can up-cycle them into tea-light holders. Let us know your own great ideas!
