Active Muscle Rub


Our Active Muscle Rub with Arnica oil is an excellent medium for sports and remedial massage. It is also effective in soothing your aching muscles and joints.

We have enhanced the therapeutic effects of Active Muscle Rub by adding the active botanicals, black pepper and ginger essential oils. These oils are used because they are shown to have analgesic and antispasmodic properties3,4  This makes the balm the perfect post-workout therapy, or as an everyday salve to simply soothe your aching muscles and joints.

For maximum benefit, bathe in Active Muscle Soak with Dead Sea and Epsom salts for 20 minutes, then massage your sore joints or muscles with Active Muscle Rub.



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!
