Our Muscle Rub contains Hypericum (St Johns Wort), made by the monks of Europe for over a thousand years. The stunning blood red oil contains powerful anti-inflammatory botanical oils - hypericin and hyperifin, both of which specifically target nerve pain and inflammation. The Hypericum we use is created by collecting the fresh flowers and infusing them in oil as opposed to oil made from infusing the remainder of the plant, often used for anti-depressants.
