Muscle Balm


Pre-Training, Post-Workout, Tense Muscles, Growing Pains, Sore or Stick Neck, Shoulders, Back - and more!

 

Muscle Balm or Muscle Balm 'Extra'

 

What's the difference?

 

Firstly, the scent. 'Standard' is made with Peppermint and Lavender.

 

'Extra' is made with Peppermint and Wintergreen, so the aroma is very reminiscent of 'Tiger Balm'.

 

Other than that, if you are allergic to aspirin/salicilytes then best to steer clear of the Extra as Wintergreen is a natural aspirin. Also, I would not use this for kids, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, have epilepsy or even for an extended period of time (mainly due to the Wintergreen again!)

 

I would use both with caution if you suffer from High Blood Pressure. Please consult your Healthcare Provider for more information about your specific circumstances.

 

(They are both effective, however I suggest the 'Standard' for most cases, especially for kids, and for regular use. We use the 'Extra' in our house for the occasional 'heavy duty' muscle strains and injury that occurs!)

NOVEMBER UPDATE:

 

 

The re-formulating plan so far....  Being in the shop day-to-day has made this almost impossible to focus on. But, the GOOD NEWS: once we move and are settled in the Blue Mountains (probably over December/January, a new formula will be the PRIMARY FOCUS and GOAL in early 2018!!!  The plan is to also make it available with more options!

(If you would like to be notified when the Balms are available again, please email us)
