New and Improved!

One of our best-loved products is our Joint and Muscle Pain Blend. This lotion blend was perfect for arthritis sufferers, athletes, and everyone in between!

But as part of our ever-present desire to improve our experience and offerings, we have updated our Joint and Muscle Blend. It’s still the same lotion-based formula you love with a different selection of essential oils that are more finely-tuned for your needs: Clove, Birch, and Cinnamon! This blend is stronger than the original, so it lasts longer.

This also now comes in a convenient pumper bottle, which is easier on the joints :). It also contains Trauma Trio, a blend of three carrier oils (from The Herbal Guy), which are excellent for healing and nourishing.

Are you interested in our new and improved blend? Let us know! We are working to get it up in our store as soon as possible. Have a great week!
