    A treasure in your medicine cabinet!

    As a cooling/warming sensation eases your tension and pain away, you can rest easy knowing the Muscle Melt Balm is a combination of potent herbs and essential oils- no fillers or toxic preservatives. The immediate relief your muscles and joints feel is just what Mother Nature ordered.       

    Dr. Peter Borten created the Muscle Melt line to soothe uncomfortable muscles and joints more quickly and safely than oral pharmaceuticals. By delivering herbs directly to the problematic area and circumventing the digestive system, these tissues can experience rapid relief without whole-body side effects.

    Muscle melt is a combination of powerful herbs and essential oils that grew from Dr. Borten’s extensive training with orthopedists and martial artists. Now in use for over 12 years, the Muscle Melt line has been, by far, our most successful collection of products.

    Clients asked us for a thicker, semi-solid balm that’s portable and clean, with a smooth texture that’s easy to massage into muscles and joints, and the potency you love in our Muscle Melt products. We developed and field tested 13 formulations and this was the winner. Our massage therapists love Muscle Melt Balm and you will too!

    Over 10,000 clients have used Muscle Melt for relief of their muscles and joints, and it’s the magic behind our most popular massage. It will help you feel free in your body again, so you can move and exercise, and GET BACK TO DOING WHAT YOU LOVE!

    Here are a few of the 17 precisely chosen ingredients:

    • Helichrysum - This herb has long been used for a variety of health complaints in Europe. Modern research shows it has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.
    • Chamomile - An herb treasured for digestive complaints for centuries, recent studies on chamomile have demonstrated anti-inflammatory and pain relieving effects.
    • Clove - The buds of this tree have historically been used as a flavoring and to alleviate pain. Modern research confirms that clove has anti-inflammatory and strong antioxidant activity.

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

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

    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.

Doesn’t take much...

Purchased the Muscle Melt Balm for my shoulders. Apparently I’v been feeling the effects of bursitis and no other rub has worked. Dragontrees products are everything you read about them. Even more so. Just a small amount of the Muscle Melt Balm helped the shoulder pain and allowed more movement of each shoulder. Next time I’ll buy a bigger Balm container. Thank you, Dragontree

I love how well it

I love how well it works on my shoulder pain (post surgery) and I love the smell. I also have Muscle Melt patches and they are the best!

Immediate relief

Any stress that I’m feeling always shows up in my neck, going back as far as I can remember. The balm is a lifesaver and very pleasant to use. It takes very little and has a very relaxing fragrance as well. Will definitely buy again.

This sruff is like agic!

For the past 5 years, I have lower back and neck pain all day every day. Most mornings I get up because it hurts too much to stay in bed. I massaged muscle melt balm into my sore areas and the pain vanished. It stayed gone for over 12 hours. I couldn't believe it! I was a tiger balm person, now I am a muscle melt person. Thank you for my first pain free morning in longer than I can remember.

For someone like me who

For someone like me who suffers from chronic pain the patches work great and patch sticks well but doesn't pull skin off when it's removed. Would definitely purchase again

I’ve had neck/shoulder pain for years. When it flares up it pretty much stops me for the day. Or longer. Yesterday it was pretty bad and I used Muscle Melt Balm in both sides of my neck and my bad shoulder. Within about 45 minutes I realized I could turn my head with zero pain! The stiffness was still there but seemed less but having no pain was miraculous. I’d already used it on my ankle after tweaking it running and it really helped. This stuff is really incredible. I am so glad I found this balm!

Muscle Melt Balm and Sinus Oil

I got the Muscle Melt Balm for my Husband who is just back.on his feet from a disattatched Achilles Tendon he love it and also has found that it is great for his chapped sore hands and said his hands are soft! The Sinus Oil is for me. I have suffered since early childhood from plugged up sinuses and ear nose throat stuff and had 4 to 6 people smoking like chimneys all around me when I was small - so the sinus drops are great and really help! It is a bit hard to control the # of drops but getting better at it! 100 percent satisfaction and will be trying some other stuff on your site and glad I found you! Thanks!

Muscle Melt Balm really works!

Both my husband and I have used the Muscle Melt Balm on sore and strained muscles, both of us saw a quick decrease in pain. I used it once after soaking in a hot tub and it really penetrated and took on a heat of it's own, literally pulling the swelling out of my shoulder. Amazing stuff. Will be buying more.

Excellent will be ordering more

Five star had something similar when I was younger. Have been unable to find comparable product. Wonderful!

Muscle Melt Balm - works great!

I love that there is little to no odor when using the balm. It goes on smoothly and is not greasy. I have frozen shoulder and the muscles are very tight and stiff, and after just one or two applications I was moving without pain and was able to have a wider range of motion while doing my physical therapy exercises. This is a product I will recommend to others! Thank you Dragontree!
