Sore Muscle Salve

- By: Safia Ohlson

Does Spring inspire the desire to move your body?  We know the feeling. Longer days and warmer weather mean more after-work hikes, weekend bike rides, and outdoor yoga sessions. Also, the urgency to get in a few last-minute runs before ski season ends is practically sonnet-inspiring around here.

What you require during this season of renewal (besides great Skin and Bodycare Rituals that prepare you for the dog days of shorts and sun dresses) is an Essential Oil salve that helps to relax and restore sore, overworked muscles.

We love this stimulating and penetrating organic Essential Oil blend anytime we are post Pilates, gardening, late-night dancing, or, even, after a particularly arduous dog walk. Try it on yourself or a loved one and thank us in the morning.

Blend Oils together. Please be careful not to touch Oils to eyes or mucous membranes!  Massage into fatigued or sore muscles.

Why It’s Amazing

Frankincense Oil is commonly used in ceremony in many different spiritual traditions because of its ability to connect one’s consciousness to the Infinite while simultaneously grounding and calming the body. This wonderfully healing, uplifting Essential Oil heals skin abrasions and bolsters the spirit.

Black Pepper Oil helps stimulate circulation for improved recovery time.

Lavender Oil is a salve for body, mind, and soul. Its remarkable abilities include helping the body relax and release tension

Peppermint Oil is stimulating and refreshing. It helps soothe muscle aches and pains and quells headaches.

Organic Jojoba Oil mimics the skin’s sebum for safe, quick, effective penetration of the Essential Oils.  

In Case You Missed The Memo

Our Essential Oils are the highest quality, highest purity, most nutrient-dense you’ll find anywhere. Yes, that’s a bold statement, and we stand by it. Each Oil is sustainably wild-crafted and/or organic, harvested, and distilled by people we know, love, trust, and have worked with for many years.
