      There are many herbs that can be taken internally – as teas, tinctures, supplements - or externally (as massage oils, balms or ointments) to alleviate joint pain and inflammation.

      For example, turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. It is excellent to prevent and relieve joint and muscle pain, and to promote a speedy recovery where needed. It is also a great aid to digestion – particularly of protein and fats – and it helps assimilate protein and nutrients to nourish muscles.

      Another example is meadowsweet. Rich in vitamin C, iron, calcium, magnesium and silica, meadowsweet is a marvellous herb for bone, ligament, joint and muscle health. Not only does it help eliminate toxins that may accumulate in joints and intensify inflammation but it has pain relieving properties too, thanks to its high salicylic acid content — the molecule from which aspirin was synthesised.

      Yet another great herb for joint and muscle health is nettle. Nettle leaves have a rich, earthy, deep flavour. They are particularly nourishing – they are rich in vitamins A and C and minerals, particularly iron, calcium, silica, magnesium and potassium. All of these nutrients are essential for the maintenance of vibrant health and vitality. Nettle is also a mild diuretic that gently stimulates liver and kidney function, helping to eliminate toxins via the urine and supporting healthy, flexible joints and muscles.

      All three of these (and more!) are in our Joint and Muscle Tea. This herbal blend has been developed to promote fluidity and ease of movement. It contains potent but gentle anti-inflammatory and pain-killing herbs that combat aches and pains related to mobility, whether due to overexertion or injury. This tea is warming, comforting, and ideal for soothing inflammation and promoting general joint and muscle health.
      Our Joint and Muscle Supplements are made with a potent herbal blend to ease inflammation and support joint health. They contain anti-inflammatory herbs that promote healthy movement and ease joint pain, including turmeric, ginger, frankincense, devil’s claw, rosehip and celery seeds. If you experience discomfort, stiffness or pain in your joints and muscles or suffer from an inflammatory condition like arthritis, our Joint and Muscle Supplements are packed with herbs that work to support your movement and flexibility. We recommend taking these herbs for a period of at least a month (one jar of capsules will last you a month) – and for best results, keep using them for up to three months.

      These capsules contain only herbs, which are just dried and reduced into a powder to fit into a plant-based capsule. They are 100% natural and do not contain any preservatives, fillers, thickeners or any other ingredients. The capsules are plant-based, so these supplements are entirely suitable for vegans.
      To promote joint health, it is important to stay physically active, drink plenty of water, have a healthy diet with a wide range of fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, and to modulate your stress levels. Taking medicinal herbs and spices which have natural anti-inflammatory, painkilling, antioxidant and detoxifying properties can also be a great way to improve your joint health naturally.

      For example, turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. It is excellent to prevent and relieve joint and muscle pain, and to promote a speedy recovery where needed. It is also a great aid to digestion – particularly of protein and fats – and it helps assimilate protein and nutrients to nourish muscles.

      You can add some more fresh or dried turmeric root into recipes in your day-to-day life, or take some as a supplement (for example in our Turmeric Supplements, or as part of a blend in our Joint and Muscle Supplements). You can also drink it as a part of a herbal tea blend like our Joint and Muscle Tea.
      Internal joint and muscle inflammation can be combated externally with the use of herbs and essential oils that support nerve, muscle, and tissue health while also reducing inflammation. Herbal infused oils can be particularly effective at kickstarting the body’s own system of restorative processes to address stiffness, soreness, tension and inflammation.

      For example, Saint John’s wort is a potent ally for the nervous system when applied topically to the skin. St. John’s wort oil is also a dependable friend for sore muscles, sprains and strains, bruises, and bumps. St. John’s wort is beneficial for all nerve discomfort and muscle tissue pain. This herb is a good match for sensitive areas of the body where there is an abundance of nerve endings, such as the fingertips, toes, spine, and eyes. A restorative to the nervous system, St. John’s wort has the remarkable ability to rejuvenate and reawaken damaged nerve endings that have suffered as the result of acute trauma or chronic discomfort. The herb speeds the body’s natural ability to reduce swelling and repair tissues where there is inflammation or irritation.

      Saint John’s wort is one of the herbs that are infused in our Joint and Muscle Balm. This is a tried and tested formula that offers soothing support for muscle, joint aches, strains and pain. It’s ideal for after exercising, to ease any stiffness, to heal bruises, and to alleviate longer-term discomfort in muscles or joints. In addition to Saint John's wort, it includes comfrey, marshmallow root and essential oils of cajeput and pine. The dried herbs are heated gently in extra virgin olive oil in our apothecary to extract their beneficial properties. After straining the infused oil, we add candelilla wax and blend in the essential oils. We also carry the same balm with added cannabidiol (CBD), our Joint and Muscle Balm with CBD, for extra potency to ease higher levels of aches and pains. Our Mahanarayan Oil is another really effective Ayurvedic recipe that promotes joint and muscle health.

      For an even more effective approach, you can use external herbal preparations in conjunction with internal herbs — in herbal teas or supplements for example. Consider our Joint and Muscle tea or our Joint and Muscle Supplements!
      Zen Maitri’s Mahanarayan oil follows an ancient Ayurvedic recipe that’s been used for thousands of years to soothe stiff, achy, tense joints and muscles and to help the body to move more freely and comfortably.

      For example you can use it after a long day of work, or after an intense workout, or when you’re feeling tense during colder, drier months, if your back hurts, or if your body is feeling stiff after a few months of not exercising so much for example. It’s brilliant to lubricate, enliven and soften your tissues so you can stretch and move easily and do everything that you love!

      To use it, you can pop a few drops of the oil in the palm of your hands and massage onto different parts of your body as and when needed – for example on an achy wrist, a tight muscle, or any areas of your back that feel stiff and painful. Not only does it ease any soreness and tension, but it also improves blood circulation, reduces inflammation, it helps with the elimination of toxins from the tissues, and it has a relaxing effect on the nervous system as well. Mahanarayan oil has also been used as a general warming and soothing body massage oil in traditional Ayurvedic medicine on a more subtle level to balance your doshas – especially to balance Vata, the dosha responsible for energy and movement.

      It’s made with an amazing range of synergistic herbal ingredients that are soothing, warming, anti-inflammatory, relaxing and painkilling, and that work really well in combination, making the whole more than the sum of its parts. To name a few, the blend has sesame oil, ashwagandha, ginger, turmeric, tulsi or holy basil, valerian. In Sanskrit, Maha means great, and Narayan refers to a higher being, or deity – this oil is a great being in itself, with all of the ingredients in it playing their part to perform wonders on the human body.
      Our Joint and Muscle Supplements can be very supportive to bring some relief to those experiencing arthritis. They are made with a potent herbal blend to ease inflammation and support joint health. They contain anti-inflammatory herbs that promote healthy movement and ease joint pain, including turmeric, ginger, frankincense, devil’s claw, rosehip and celery seeds. This recipe was specifically designed to alleviate inflammatory conditions like arthritis affecting joints and muscles. It can ease discomfort, stiffness and pain and support your movement and flexibility. We recommend taking these herbs for a period of at least a month (one jar of capsules will last you a month) – and for best results, keep using them for up to three months.
      Our All-Natural Pre- and Post-Workout Mix is a vegan powder made with a powerful blend of herbs to promote muscle recovery pre- and post-workout. Each natural ingredient has been carefully chosen to support recovery, reduce soreness and fatigue, and replenish the vitamins and minerals you need for improved physical performance. Add this all-natural, plant-based blend to your daily shake for a natural alternative to synthetic or dairy-based powders.

      One of the many ingredients in this mix is mucuna: a nourishing tonic which naturally helps build muscles. It is a powerful antioxidant, hormone balancer and mood booster. It reduces muscle tension and cramps and promotes physical and mental performance.
      Many herbs help promote joint and muscle health. For example, turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. It is excellent to prevent and relieve joint and muscle pain, and to promote a speedy recovery where needed. It is also a great aid to digestion – particularly of protein and fats – and it helps assimilate protein and nutrients to nourish muscles.

      Frankincense is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory pain reliever. It helps speed muscle and joint recovery after exercise. It also relieves muscle spasm and soothes any muscle and joint strains and sprains. It helps open up the lungs, encouraging deeper breathing to improve athletic performance.

      Celery seed is a diuretic, so it increases and enhances urine flow and assists your body in getting rid of metabolic waste. This can improve joint health and reduce excess fluid and swelling around the joints as well as unwanted movement, like nervous restlessness and muscle spasms.

      Another example of a great herb for joint and muscle health is meadowsweet. Rich in vitamin C, iron, calcium, magnesium and silica, meadowsweet is a marvellous herb for bone, ligament, joint and muscle health. Not only does it help eliminate toxins that may accumulate in joints and intensify inflammation but it has pain-relieving properties too, thanks to its high salicylic acid content — the molecule from which aspirin was synthesised.

      Singing nettle is another fantastic ally to promote easy and flexible movement in your joints and muscles. Nettle leaves have a rich, earthy, deep flavour. They are particularly nourishing – they are rich in vitamins A and C and minerals, particularly iron, calcium, silica, magnesium and potassium. All of these nutrients are essential for the maintenance of vibrant health and vitality. Nettle is also a mild diuretic that gently stimulates liver and kidney function, helping to eliminate toxins via the urine and supporting healthy, flexible joints and muscles.

      All of the herbs above can be found either in our Joint and Muscle Supplements or in our Joint and Muscle tea – or both!
      To naturally support your joint health, you can drink our Joint and Muscle tea, which has been developed to promote fluidity and ease of movement. It contains potent but gentle anti-inflammatory and pain-killing herbs – including turmeric, nettle, ginger, and cinnamon – that combat aches and pains related to mobility, whether due to overexertion or injury. This blend is warming, comforting, and ideal for soothing inflammation and promoting general joint and muscle health.
      To support recovery from muscle injury, you can for example use a balm containing some comfrey and/or some Saint John’s wort – like our Joint and Muscle Balm. Comfrey root is deeply healing — another one of its traditional common names is ‘knitbone’, as it facilitates and activates tissue healing, having even been used to support the body to heal broken bones for many centuries. It is a brilliant herb to assist recovery from torn ligaments, strains, bruises, arthritis, tendonitis and any injury or inflammation in muscles, joints or bones. St John’s wort is often prescribed internally for its mood-enhancing qualities, but it also has a wealth of external uses. St John’s wort infused oil eases pain and speeds healing, particularly where there is nerve injury and/or pain involved, such as in sciatica and shingles. It is also helpful for any sprains, bruises, wounds or sores.
      We carry a version of our Joint and Muscle balm with added cannabidiol (CBD), our Joint and Muscle Balm with CBD, for extra potency to ease higher levels of aches and pains. CBD is a key constituent found in the flowers of the cannabis plant (sometimes called the hemp plant). CBD heightens the pain-killing and anti-inflammatory actions of this balm for muscles, joints and nerves. Our balm has one the highest concentrations of CBD you will find available on the market today – 1,000 mg of CBD per jar of 60g of balm. We use a pure, broad-spectrum CBD extract, with 0% tetrahydrocannabinol or THC (CBD does not have any of cannabis’ psychotropic effects).

      Our Joint and Muscle Balm with CBD can certainly help tight muscles, as it effectively relieves muscle and joint aches, pain, stiffness, tension and discomfort. It supports healing, reducing bruises, enhancing recovery and providing relief from injury, inflammation, torn ligaments, strains, arthritis and tendonitis.

      If you are experiencing mild back and knee pain, topical herbal preparations can be of help to provide relief. Our main products that we would generally recommend in such cases are our Mahanarayan oil and our Joint and Muscle balm (both the classic version and the version with added CBD for added painkilling potency).

      Our Mahanarayan oil follows an ancient Ayurvedic recipe that’s been used for thousands of years to soothe stiff, achy, tense joints and muscles and to help the body to move more freely and comfortably. You can simply put a few drops of the oil in the palm of your hands and massage onto the hurting areas of your knee and/or back. It will help ease any soreness and tension, but also improve blood circulation, reduce inflammation. The oil also supports the elimination of toxins from the tissues, and has a relaxing effect on the nervous system.

      You can also use our Joint and Muscle balm – with or without CBD – which combines Saint John’s wort, comfrey, marshmallow root and essential oils of cajeput and pine to ease aches and pains, stiffness, tension and discomfort in your joints and muscles. It can also be very helpful to ease knee and back pain, and it is a versatile formula that can also be used for injuries like torn ligaments, strains, arthritis and tendonitis. It speeds healing and reduces bruising. This balm has a thicker texture and a fresher fragrance than the Mahanarayan oil. Go for the version with added CBD if you are looking for a higher level of pain killing properties.

      Both the balms and the Mahanarayan oil help to soothe, nourish and soften the skin, easing any irritation, and they can help you to bring relief and comfort to aching backs and knees.
      There are herbs that are particularly potent for relieving nerve pain like sciatica. Saint John’s wort is one of them. This herb which is known for its mood-lifting properties when taken internally also has the ability to bring relief to pain associated with nerve trauma and damage when applied externally. St. John’s wort oil is also indicated for acute shock, pain or injury in the coccyx or sacral spine. As a restorative to the nervous system, St. John’s wort has the remarkable ability to rejuvenate and reawaken damaged nerve endings that have suffered as the result of acute trauma or chronic discomfort. The herb speeds the body’s natural ability to reduce swelling and repair tissues where there is inflammation or irritation above or below the surface of the skin.

      It is very helpful to ease pain and discomfort or sensitive areas of the body where there is an abundance of nerve endings, such as the fingertips, toes, spine, and eyes. Acute, searing, or pointed pain that feels discernibly sharp and shooting benefits from a massage with Saint John’s wort oil.

      In particular, topical St. John’s wort is well suited to easing sciatica (pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which branches from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg) – particularly when associated with wintergreen essential oil –, as well as rheumatism, fibromyalgia, and any variety of neuralgias.

      Saint John’s wort oil and wintergreen essential oil are key ingredients in our Nerve oil: a soothing blend of herbal extracts and essential oils designed to ease nerve pain and the numbness, swelling and tingling sensations that often accompany it. Although it can help bring relief to any kind of nerve pain, our Nerve oil has been formulated with particular attention to alleviating sciatica. It combines anti-inflammatory, pain-killing, antispasmodic, circulation-boosting and healing properties to bring comfort and relief.
