Flex & Extend Healing Balm

For aching joints and strained muscles

Created to help ease stiff joints and aching muscles - perfect before yoga or particularly after exercise.


This is a balm created to support movement, whether it be a slow contemplative yoga session, a trip to the gym or a strenuous workout in the garden,  Flex & Extend is full of herbs and remedies to help soothe aches and pains, to bring comfort at the end of a demanding day .

In a quickly absorbed base of Shea Butter, Almond and Jojoba oils we added Meadowsweet we picked in the Hebrides for its long history of anti-inflammatory action. We added Juniper for its anti-rheumatic properties, our own Lavender Angustifolia to calm and soothe the mind and relax the body and Rosemary for its reputed analgesic properties. To this potent combination we added Homeopathic Rhus tox for stiff, aching joints, Arnica for muscle pain and Ruta because it is a wonderful remedy for stiffness and inflammation. 

How to use

Rub gently and slowly into the affected before bed and on waking to help to ease stiffness and pain. Also apply after sport and before yoga for best effect.
