  • Cocoa Butter: This natural, healing butter is rich in healthy fats and anti-oxidants that make this velvety moisturizer anti-inflammatory.

  • Apricot Kernel Oil: This fast-absorbing carrier oil softens skin without leaving an oily residue and has a pleasantly nutty aroma. The anti-inflammatory properties of this mild yet rejuvenating oil help relieve sore muscles.

  • Lavender Essential Oil: This anti-inflammatory and analgesic oil is a popular choice for those looking to relieve both emotional and physical stress ranging from sadness to headaches and aching muscles.

  • Rosemary Essential Oil: Blood circulation, which is vital to managing pain, is improved when this analgesic and anti-inflammatory oil is used in massage.

  • Ginger Essential Oil: The Zingibain compound in Ginger makes it anti-inflammatory, which promotes the relief of pain in muscles, bones, and joints. This oil is believed to lessen the number of pain-related compounds in the body called prostaglandin.
