Aches & Pains Oil
A gentle natural aches and pains soother. We especially love it as massage oil (as do many, many of the massage therapists we know). We also use it on bumps, bruises, sore muscles, and aching joints.
Each year we start with wildcrafted Arnica Montana and St. John's Wort flowers (both reputed for their anti-inflammatory properties) hand-picked in the Bitterroot Mountains and sent to us overnight. After being briefly dried, they are steeped for a minimum of two months in pure sweet almond oil to extract their oils, then strained. Once strained we add lavender essential oil for its calming and soothing effects and a touch of vitamin e. (It is the St. John's Wort flowers that impart the beautiful red color to the finished oil.)
For the past twenty years, this has been one of Island Thyme's most popular products!
Directions: Apply directly to any aches and pains, or use as a massage oil. Not intended for chafed skin or open wounds.
Ingredients: Arnica Montana and St. John's Wort infused sweet almond oil, lavender essential oil, vitamin e.
Please note- 4oz bottles will be back in stock during the Summer, once this year's wildcrafted Arnica Montana can be harvested and processed.
My friend gave me this a year ago and when I got severe black faced hornet bee stings and made my whole arm puff up in agony. I used this ointment and it saved me. Plus I put it on my thumb after working outside. I love the smell and gave it to my son in law to help heal his thumb surgery. I reordered and am very happy. Thanks!
Since I have discovered Island Thyme I have found another massage oil that helps to control my arthritic knee pain, and it works! I add to my other lotion and I am pain free. I keep ordering it.
Definitely good for morning arthritis pain. Right out of the shower it soothes the pain
Going through chemotherapy makes all sorts of places hurt. I have found a great deal of relief using the aches &pains oil. A little massage and wow it feels much better.
I ordered more of this wonderful product after getting is as a recovery gift! I use it on my ankle break area and it works very well for medium pain relief plus skin/scar love with the lavender, vitamin E and sweet almond oil! I’m giving some roll-ons as gifts soon because I want to share the goodness :)
