The process of the muscle salve is tideous. We steep tabasco chilis and ginger from our summer garden. We then strain it so all the goodness is left in the oil. Then we melt down organic beeswax, organic unrefined coconut oil, organic shea butter, black pepper, peppermint, lavender, frankincense, basil, chamomile, ginger, spearmint, helichrysum, clove, & wintergreen essential oils. Use sparingly on achey joints and muscles. it's also great to rub on the back of your neck when you have a headache. This product has a slight warming effect due to the tobasco chilis.
