    Don't suffer any longer!

    We believe that topical relief is more effective and much safer for your body than internal products.  When you take an ibuprofen or aspirin, it systematically affects your whole body.  It doesn't have the cleverness to know where to go, so it goes everywhere.  When you address a spastic muscle or sore knee directly, you’re able to intelligently guide the formula to where you need it, resulting in faster more effective relief.

    It’s 100% natural and 100% pure goodness for your muscles and joints.

    Dr. Peter Borten developed Muscle Melt Liniment throughout years of working with herbs in his practice.  Peter used his background as a botanist, as well as his extensive studies of the herbal medicine systems of cultures worldwide to inform this recipe.  He studied countless secret martial arts formulas (which have been passed down for generations from master to student), and he worked extensively with pain experts from Chinese hospitals.

    This formula was perfected over 10 years of using the liniment in The Dragontree’s most popular massage – the Muscle Melt Massage.  Over 10,000 of our clients have used Muscle Melt for relief of their muscles and joints.  So we decided to make it available to the public at large.  You can now experience freedom from your aches and soreness.

    Muscle Melt Liniment is a combination of potent herbs and essential oils that produce an immediate sense of reprieve; and affect the tissue such that long term comfort can occur.  These herbs and oils work together to reduce inflammation, release spasms, alleviate soreness, and increase circulation to the area.

    Here are a few of the 37 precisely chosen ingredients:

    • Lobelia -This herb has long been used by Native Americans and herbalists as an anti-spasmodic to alleviate muscle spasms.
    • Frankincense -This resin has an extensive history of use in the treatment of muscle and joint pain.  Recent studies have shown it contains several potent anti-inflammatory compounds.
    • Rhubarb root -Used for centuries as a digestive herb, new research shows this root has strong anti-inflammatory properties.
    • Notopterygium - This herb has been utilized for centuries (probably millennia) in Traditional Chinese Medicine for the treatment of aches and pains throughout the body.  It is especially valued for discomfort in the upper back, neck, shoulders and arms.
    • Drynaria - It’s called Gu Sui Bu in Chinese, which means “mender of shattered bones".  It has long been used in Chinese Medicine to treat fractures, bruises, and sprains.


    Each ingredient in Muscle Melt Liniment is there for a reason.  There are no “filler” ingredients, parabens, toxic preservatives, petroleum products, artificial fragrances/colors, aluminum compounds, or cocamide DEA.

    We know you’ve seen other balms and creams on the market – but most of them are just a bunch of numbing agents.  Just because you can’t feel that it hurts, doesn’t mean it’s better.  Our formula gives immediate relief that lasts and heals.

Use Daily

I love the Muscle Melt Liniment. I have fibromyalgia and terrible muscle tension/tightness, and the Muscle Melt makes a noticeable difference. I use it on my worst spots every day before bed, and have done so for at least a couple of years now. Whenever I accidentally skip a night of using it, I can really feel the difference. I've tried other products, like Icy Hot, but they hurt my skin because of the cooling effect. Muscle Melt has made a huge difference in my life, for which I am very grateful, and I doubt I will ever stop using it. I highly recommend it to everyone, especially those who have problems with muscle pain, tightness, and tension.

My 2nd purchase! This lineament Works!

I have early onset arthritis, the prescription pain creams would numb my hands with application and left me feeling odd. This lineament is Fantastic! It works, the heating sensation is followed by a cooling and the pain flows away. I even gifted a bottle to my 80 year old neighbor with bad arthritis. Please try this, you won’t be disappointed!

Muscle melt linament

I love this product! I was introduced to the muscle melt about 5 years ago at by my acupuncturist . I had breast cancer and along with all the things that go with this i had to go on a drug that makes all of your joints hurt to keep the estrogen from producing. I use this everyday on my arms, legs, feet, and neck, it really has helped with the relief of aches. I love this product and would highly recommend it!

Excellent product

This has been an indispensible part of healing from both of the hip replacement operations this year. It not only heals but helps to relieve pain in localized areas. I had some sent to a sister who had muscle pain in one thigh which was keeping her from being able to sit for long periods. Only two applications relieved the problem. I definitely would recommend this product.

Great product

We were on a cruise and several people had strains from walking and climbing stairs so much. We never travel without Muscle Melt so we turned into a lending library...the Muscle Melt was all over that ship. Then everybody took pictures to order it.

Muscle Melt Liniment

I use this with a mix of other items and it has improved my pain issues

This is amazing stuff

I have tried a lot of difference oils to help with sore muscles but this one really helped me. I had a sore ankle on the day of my mother in laws funeral and I couldn't put weight on it and we put some muscle melt on it and in about 30 minutes I could at least put weight on it not that it cures anything but it does help relieve muscles soreness for sure in my experience. I use thi. Muscle melt Balm and massage oil. I was a sceptic at first but now I am a total believer :)

Muscle Linament Helps Relieve Leg Cramps

This is the only thing that has helped my leg cramps and leg muscle tightness and pain. It doesn't take it away completely, but it sure reduces pain and cramping for hours so I can sleep at night! I have also used it for achy tight back muscles.

Ode to Muscle Melt Liniment

I have very tight hamstrings - I put on the Muscle Melt Liniment then stretch and my hamstrings loosen up and stop hurting. It's a miracle product! It even has a very pleasant smell.

Love this Liniment!

I have used this liniment for several months and love the way it works on my back pain and back muscle spasms. My mother-in-law and I both also feel relief of pain in our arthritic finger joints from applying the smallest amount. This second bottle is for her -- I still have a lot left. It really lasts!
