Muscle Melt Balm


    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.

Using it for tight muscles

The shipping was fast, the product arrived pretty quickly. I have been putting it on my husband's calves, they are super tight and we are doing a couch to 5K program, the running makes them tight, and he has asked me to put it on after the runs. He isn't sure if it's working but he keeps putting it on so I think it's helping.
