Muscle Recovery Balm
Bring on the burn, baby.
The ultimate love-hate relationship— muscle soreness. While the post-workout burn is quite satisfying, it also means that stairs for the next 3 days might be your worst enemy. But fret no more, this all-natural recovery balm is infused with the herbal powers of comfrey and balsam poplar to help soothe and speed the recovery of your hardworking muscles.
Comfrey - Modulates inflammation and relieves pain.
Balsam Poplar - Traditionally used in herbal medicine as a pain reliever for arthritic joints, injuries, tendinitis, and other similar sore body parts. The salicylates also help to reduce pain.
Wintergreen essential oil - The main component, methyl salicylate, acts to warm and soothe sore muscles after exercise
