Bring the smells of the forest home with you! Our wildcrafted Boreal Muscle and Joint Salve is inspired by summer and wintertime adventures in northern Alberta's Boreal forest - and the muscle soreness, aches and pains that sometimes follow. Perfect for post-workouts, as well as day-to-day use. Made with Boreal plants, resins and trees selected for their effective analgesic, anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties. Essential oil free, so there are no irritating warming or cooling sensations.

Each plant in this salve is sustainably and ethically collected at peak potency during late spring or summer, dried, and then solar-infused in organic oil. The healing, botanical infused oil is then strained and combined with organic Alberta Beeswax. 

Due to the seasonal nature of this product, limited quantities are available.
