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.
I just got a bottle of this to use on my aching neck and shoulders while I'm spending hours more on my computer per day, and it's a great help. Helps when my hands are sore, too!
I've ordered Aches and Pain Oil several times with Island Thyme. Well when I twisted my knee last month and saw bruises right away I was devastated I injured my knee.. A day went by and I thought of the Aches and Pain Oil I used on my arm a few years ago when I climbed and slipped coming down off a wet mossy rock. That oil seemed to help in the long run on my arm so I searched for that bottle. Didn't find it so ordered from Island Thyme. It came in just 2 days! I'd been using the Lavender Rose Face cream those 2 days... which seemed to help.. The bruises are gone but I'm still using the oil twice a day. It goes on nicely and isn't greasy; and I rub the left over on my very dry hands. Nice stuff! Remember I said it helped my arm in the long run so I do believe it'll help in the long run on my knee. I've used your products for over 20 years...they're all great.. Thank you much for being there!
Does a great job relieving pain caused by IT band syndrome. Love the fragrance.
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!!
