My partner developed a frozen shoulder. We were trying everything to relieve the pain. Then I remembered picking up the muscle salve from the Olympia Farmers Market. I pulled it out and massaged his shoulder with it, and he reported the next day that it worked amazing! It felt so good on his arm and relieved his pain without burning him like some of the other salves we tried. I will definitely be ordering more. Idea: this makes a great stocking stuffer.
I picked this up because I tried a sample on my arm cramp and it cleared up in a few minutes. Put a little on my sore hip and that cleared up quickly. Now I'm using it on all my cramps and muscle pain.
It's not particularly greasy and it absorbs well. The smell is very light, and is non-intrusive. I have not seen any staining on my clothes. Very little goes a long way, and I like that.
I have to say, I'll definitely buy more. It's like a little miracle in a 2 oz can.
