A blend of Menthol Crystals, Camphor, Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Lavender essential oils.
Menthol Crystals are colourless to white crystals which dissolve easily with essential oils. They are very cooling and refreshing with a numbing quality that can offer a degree of pain relief when applied to the skin.
Camphor is a great anti inflammatory and muscle relaxant.
Eucalyptus Radiata is the most popular of all the Eucalypts because it is a very good analgesic and also helps to reduce inflammation.
Mentha Piperita is a very cooling and soothing essential oil often used in after sun oils to cool down an overheated skin. It will do the same for aching and tired muscles.
Lavender Essential Oil is calming and relaxing to sore muscles and as a synergist, makes all the other oils in this blend even more effective.
