Ooh that's a nice one, Mousehound.

I'm searching online for inspiration this morning.

Found one with similar ingredients as mine, they're asking TWENTY TWO FREAKING DOLLARS for 1.5 ounces.

*shakes head*

So I went to my massage therapist on Friday evening. She does deep tissue massage, and after working out muscle adhesions, knots and trigger points, I ended up sore along my ribs and back. I applied some of that balm; not much; and it worked great! It works better than anything I have ever tried.

Are you planning on offering it in a larger size container?

Awesome!! It makes me SO HAPPY to hear that it helped someone!!

I hadn't thought about a bigger container. I guess I could. My recipe is for 3- 1oz jars, and it seems to work best that way. Seems like when I try to double the recipe and make 6 jars at once is when I run into problems like not enough beeswax or not enough menthol.

Thank you for saying nice things. lol

Muscle Magick


Herbal Magick for sore muscles


I had a complete, total, inspirational meltdown this evening for what I want my website and logo and labels to look like and it's all going to be very simple and in earth colors, greens and browns, and the name Tigress Butter is just not going to fit in at all.

Muscle Magick sounds good. From the description people are giving of it making them feel so much better it's a fitting name.

Muscle Magick is alright. I wish I didn'thave to use the word 'muscle' in it, although sore muscles is what is helps best. Muscle is not a pretty word



When I hurt and I put it on, it feels very comforting to me. Like getting a hug.

But it's a strong recipe, it has a lot of strong ingredients in it. So a wimpy name isn't really fitting and doesn't convey how strong it is and how well it works.

I just don't know!

If someone comes up with THE NAME, they get a free jar!!

I think I'd like to use the word 'balm' in the name.

I think I'm going to use brown kraft inkjet labels, and they don't come in a size to fit the tops of my 1 oz jars. So I may be adjusting the recipe and only offering 2 oz jars.

Nirvana Balm


Nirvāna (Sanskrit: निर्वाण; Pali: निब्बान (nibbāna); Prakrit: णिव्वाण) is a central concept in Indian religions. In sramanic thought, it is the state of being free from suffering

Glad Balsam Balm.

Glad=Galaad=Gilead. Balm of Gilead is a balsam poplar bud derived medicine (cottonwood). A key ingredient in your salve.

Can you smell the flower oils in it? It sounds wonderful and I'd like to give it a try but most thins that have a flower scent set off my allergies.

It smells pretty much like Tiger Balm, if you've ever smelled that. Maybe like a minty Tiger Balm.

The flowers that are in it that have a scent, helichrysum and St John's wort, have kind of a weedy scent rather than floral. I can't detect much scent from calendula.

The helichrysum infused olive oil smells like pancakes and syrup to me. It's really pleasant.
