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 oil is a game changer! My husband suffers from arthritis as well as joints overusage as an ex athlete. He has tried countless remedies. Nothing was effective. But one spritz of this and he got fast, noticeable relief. He loves this stuff. We will be ordering more when this runs out.
Wow, we're so happy to hear this Melanie! Thank you for sharing your husband's positive experience with our Aches and Pains Oil!
Oh good golly how happy I am with this purchase! I am in PT for an injury, and putting some of this on after I do my home exercises is just the ticket to sooth those sore joints!
Quite happy to have found you as a source from a recent course I took. You will stay on my radar!
Thanks so much for sharing your experience! We're delighted to hear that you're feeling better after using our Aches and Pains oil! :)
I just love that this is such a high quality product. I have been looking for something like this for some time. I have been using this for my sciatica and it’s been great.
Hey Jeanne, thanks for sharing! Wishing you continued pain relief!
I have been a long time, local, user of Island Thyme products. I use this remarkable oil blend when arthritis acts up and daily for the workout I give my hard working hands. This potion works…and I have tried a lot of other brands too! So glad to call Island Thyme’s products a local treasure! Their lip balms are perfect too…and I am a harsh critic of them!
Thanks for leaving us such a sweet note! We're so pleased to hear that our Aches and Pains Oil provides relief for your arthritis :)
We wandered into Island Thyme (mainly killing time until we needed to head to the ferry) - we came out with lots of goodies.
This oil is easy to use - great container with a locking pump.
I am always skeptical as to whether something actually does what it is supposed to - I am a runner and have minor arthritis on my left inner knee - well may walks and short jogs (slowly working up to longer runs) have been great. Not completely healed but my body has responded very positively to this mixture of magic oils. Thank You
Thanks for sharing your experience Craig! I think you may also find comfort from our Deep Heat and/or Blue Heat balm for your arthritis pain. Wishing you happy, pain-free running!
