Products We Love: Sore Muscle Balm by Shē Essential Beauty
Suffering with a sore back from sitting at the computer all day? Maybe a nagging sports injury that won’t seem to go away? Almost all of us have some type, or assortment of, irritating aches and pains. (Mine? Tired soles from sporting stilettos too much.)
Shē Essential Beauty, an organic skincare product line based upon the philosophy of traditional Chinese medicine, sympathizes and takes our aggravating aches into consideration with its new Sore Muscle Balm. The balm, like its name suggests, is designed to cure sore muscles by boosting the body’s natural immune response to treat pain.
Spa products for sore muscles? I’m all about that intriguing concept, and the fact that the balm evokes a tart yet yummy smell, the opposite of many anti-inflammatory muscle creams or gels on the market, is just an added bonus. Plus, if you rub the balm with pressure for about a minute, the product really heats up, which is kind of amazing and definitely effective.
This 100%-natural remedy is a blend of eucalyptus and lemongrass (to stimulate the mind and release endorphins) and exotic elements of frankincense, myrrh, and ginger (to warm the muscles and increase blood flow), coupled with extracts such as St. John‘s wart, arnica, and rosemary.
Smooth it on and be on your way – stilettos and all.
The Sore Muscle Balm is available starting September 2010. To purchase, visit www.sheessentialbeauty.com.
