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. Johnswort flowers (both reputed for their anti-inflammatory properties) hand-picked in the Bitter Root 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. Johnswort 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. Johnswort infused sweet almond oil, lavender essential oil, vitamin e.
This is a soothing, topical oil that seems to relax my neck muscles & upper back. I also use it on the tops & bottoms of my feet & in the morning the damage from walking “ Covid Barefoot” for months on end seems to magically heal overnight. I like this 🥰
After hiking ten miles or a pilates class, a body massage of coconut oil infused with "aches and pains" helps me wake up without stiffness or soreness. I am a 64 year old woman who wants to remain active, and agile. I also rub it into my lover's muscles after he has mowed the back 40 or hoed the potato patch. Its fragrance acts like an aphrodisiac and transforms a simple massage into an evening of romance. I plan to always have some on hand!!
This product has helped relieve pain in my arthritic toes! My husband uses it on his neck. We have both gotten much needed pain relief!
Originally, I ordered the oil for my mother who has arthritis . She loves it , and recommended it to me when I had some muscle ache. I tried it and it worked so well that I ordered a bottle for myself!
This is a great product! It’s the only one that relieves my husbands neck pain. Thank you.
I love every single product Island Thyme makes - this one smells fantastic and works on relaxing your muscles. Love love love.
Third bottle of Aches & Pains I have purchased .
Only thing that helps cramps in my feet & legs when I wake up in the middle of the night!!
I also use it on back pain & hand pain . Absolutely love it!! Thank you
I really like this oil to put on my sore muscles and it relaxes them.
I have been buying this product for over five years. It is truly amazing. I add it to a hot bath. My boyfriend rubs it into his bald head. Excellent!
I have been a huge fan of their products for a long time and decided to try the aches and pains oil for the first time for my varicose veins. My legs ache all night and give me a problem when I lie flat. It worked great, sometimes I use the oil alone on my legs at night and sometimes I treat my legs with the oil then apply my compression stockings. They wash up nicely afterwards with no problems.. Thank you!!
I'm actually on my second bottle of Aches and Pain Oil and it works fantastic on leg cramps and my sore joints. I rub it on my knees , legs and toes and am able to go back to sleep.
This is the only thing that takes away the excruciating pain of cramps in my legs and feet that visit me in the middle of the night! I keep a bottle on my bedside table , rub a little on the painful areas and am able to go back to sleep quickly! Thank you so much for this amazing product!
The Aches and Pains oil is soothing and definitely helps general minor aches and pains! We both do active jobs and this product has come in handy after a rough day!
The aches and pain oil really works! A miracle!
It works perfectly for what I need it, pain in my knees and back. Works wonders
Great product...and incredibly quick and efficient delivery at an extremely reasonable price. Thanks.
Don’t leave home without it, especially for chronic pain
I am a massage therapist and I consistently have clients asked to buy this product. It doesn’t have heat or anything like that to let you know it’s there but the ingredients in it work on inflammation and soreness. It’s amazing
This is a quickly absorbing oil that really works! Almost every day I reach for this oil to ease some part of me that is sore and achey. Added bonus is how great it feels on the skin and no medicine-y smell. Comes with a swivel type pump that makes it easy to pack for travel. Please make in larger sizes.
I use it to massage my wife’s back in the evenings and she loves the scent.
One day my husband came home with a bottle of Aches & Pains Oil as a surprise gift for me.. I had been having lots of shoulder pain. After one day, no more pain! Just like magic !
I have use this oil ever since. And my husband was recently killed in a terrible accident. The stress and trauma has caused many painful days. Because of the Arnica and St. John's
Wart in the oil I am now rubbing the oil into my entire body when I get out of the shower . It sooths my nerves and helps me feel better about things. No depression. And I really love
that it now has a pump cap on it. Makes it easy to use when I'm rubbing myself down. I miss my sweetheart less because I have this wonderful oil to sooth me. And the smell is so good !
Thank You Island Thyme !
I put this oil on everything that hurts, and as a Licensed Massage Therapsit it’s one of my favorite luxuries to give a full body massage with just this oil. Clients love it, and I feel great after having my hands in this oil for an hour or more!
I love this oil. It is very soothing for my arthritic thumbs. Rubbing the oil in has become part of my morning and evening routine. I wish that Island Thyme made roller balls of this oil like some of the other oils they produce so I could take it everywhere!
I stayed in Orcas Island with my wife last May and got a therapeutic massage at the Rosario Resort. The masseuse used Island Thymes aches and pains oil. I loved it so much that I bought a bottle to take home with me. Since then I have recently re-ordered the product because I recently ran out. I use it on my back, on my hands, on sore muscles. I also use it on my beard. I have purchased multiple beard oils and although this product is not advertised as a beard oil, it is my favorite product to use, it wins over the other trendy beard oils I have purchased recently. Thanks for making a healing and versatile product.
My hard working hands are so arthritic that sometimes can't hold my pen to write. My brilliantPT introduced me to this lovely product. When rub into hands the oil is absorbed quickly with no lingering fragrance. .I use it regularly on body wherever needed--it is wonderful product. Received the product next day after ordering !! Will put some of it in smaller roller top vial so can have it handy on beside table.
Island Thyme,,,,,do you ever do an Orcas Is. garden and facility tour -- if so, my PT and I and no doubt others would delight in visiting... A suggestion to consider. Thanks.
Aches and Pains Oil is a standby in our home. We are especially fond of it when we have finished a day in the garden.
Been dealing with muscle and nerve pain post major spinal surgery (L2-L5) since last Dec. in my right glut, throw in right shoulder arthritis, and with the right workout and pre & post application, I am on my way!
I was in a car accident recently and this oil has been extremely helpful in managing my pain. I have already recommended this oil to a few of my friends. I love it and use it on a daily basis!
The product works well just applied on the painful spot. I have not tried it in the bath - but I love the scent.
We LOVE this product!!!
A great aromatherapy product with a massage or just add it to the bath @ bedtime for relaxation and muscle tension ease.
My boyfriend & I LOVE this!!
I gave some to my friend who has horrible migraine and she felt better - kept rubbing it on! Highly recommendMi
I love using Aches and Pain Oil . I have had 4 surgeries in the past 2 years. I have used this oil to help my scars heal. I rubbed it on over my scars every night after my stitches came out for 6 weeks after each surgery . My scars are very smooth and hardly visible . I also rub this on my bad hip when I can't sleep at night and it helps my pain subside. My kids rub it on their legs when they get growing pains. It also helps their pain lessen and it's relaxing scent helps them sleep .It is a great message oil for necks and shoulders after a long day too. I keep mine is a stainless steal spray bottle and just spray it on when every something hurts. I always take it with me on vacation because I know I will have stiff muscles and this will relax them. The familiar soothing scent helps me sleep in a strange bed. This is one of my absolute favorite products.
When it was time for my latest twice yearly order from this wonderful company, I noticed this new product. My husband is plagued by aches and pains, so I gave it a try. He spotted it right when I was unpacking my box and asked me to rub it on his back. Since then, he has been asking for it on his back just about every day and reports that it helps him make it through his chores. My fingers feel really good afterwards as well. And smell good too!
It smells wonderful and eases muscle tension at the same time!
I keep this in my arsenal for treating my rheumatoid arthritis. It is warming, healing, and very soothing. I love the smell also.
My husband and I use this product to give each other back massages. It helps to relieve our lower back pain. I also use this oil to relieve my pain's from arthritis in my hands as well as to rapidly heal bruises. I love the smell and how easily it goes on. Husband and I use this product to give each other back massages. It helps to relieve our lower back pain.
I love the smell of this oil and use for relaxing at the end of the day.
I did not notice any Any relief from my discomfort
Training for competitive obstacle racing and using a stand-up desk at work all day make for all kinds of aches and pains....especially a very sore lower back. Often times, half way through my work day I feel like I can't even stand anymore. I started rubbing some of this oil on it right after lunch and I can't believe how much it helps. Very nice for a tense neck and shoulders and it even helped a bit on the tendonitis in my feet and ankles. It has a subtle soothing scent and helps relax muscles when rubbed in. I am a huge fan and will continue to purchase.
I love this product. The perfect combo of herbs quickly eases tension away and the scent is mild yet still relaxing.
