  • Muscle rescue balm for makers

    Newly restocked!
    It's never too late to take good care of your most important tool: your hands.

    Whether you put stock in herbal remedies or not, this lovely little muscle balm will feel soothing to your maker's hands. It's made by a small herbalist in Michigan and contains wonderful plant remedies like coconut oil, shea butter, almond and other oils, plus a tiny bit of arnica, which is a homeopathic remedy for sore muscles.

    Rub the balm onto the fronts and backs of your wrists to show them a bit of extra love. I think you'll love this balm as much as I do!
