What’s in Zen’s Muscle & Joint Balm?
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
This is a very heat stable oil which is also light on the skin for massage with minimal risk of allergies. We use all-natural extra virgin oil sourced from family farms in Greece.
Is the main herb in this ointment and is traditionally one of the first herbs sought for strains, sprains, aches and pains. It is also known as ‘knitbone’, as it’s used to help the body repair fractures when the bones have been set in place.
The other herbs in the balm are: Oak Bark, Mullein, Walnut Leaf, Gravel root, Marshmallow Root, Wormwood, Lobelia Herb, Skullcap herb, Calendula flower and St John’s Wort. These herbs are all rich in minerals, especially calcium, which supports the healing process. Skullcap and Lobelia are traditionally used as muscle relaxants and antispasmodics, St. John’s wort is traditionally used for soothing tingling and nerve pain. Calendula helps with bruises.
Pine Essential Oil
Pine essential oil is included in our muscle and joint balm to help soothe muscular aches and pains and for its fresh woody scent.
Zen’s Muscle & Joint Balm is ideal for anyone who needs support with soothing muscle and joint aches, strains and pains. It’s ideal for applying after sport, for bruises, and for easing long term discomfort.
