The athlete and weekend warrior will love this little salve.
Badass Balm is an excellent treatment for the overachiever and occasional Olympian. It is a small tub of relief for overworked, over-stressed, strained, sore muscles. This product has the bonus of penetrating quickly and deeply into the affected area.
Badass Balm contains capsaicin, which is the active constituent of Cayenne Pepper, and Ginger. Capsaicin gained popularity when found to aid in the treatment of common ailments suffered by athletes and the reduction of ordinary inflamed tenderness. Badass Balm contains St John's Wort, Chamomile, and Arnica. Arnica has been a treatment since the Renaissance as useful in treating pain.
Apply by rubbing Badass Balm where you have a muscle, joint, or any spot experiencing soreness. Use Karen's Botanicals' Badass Balm on the affected area, then cover with a cotton wrap, and let this balm work for several hours. You can make your handmade cover at home by cutting the toe-off of clean socks and slipping it on like a tube. Ace bandages also make good wraps. For extra love, try covering the spot with a moist, warm towel for an additional strength treatment. One customer has shared with us that she stands on her feet all day and applies Badass Balm to her feet' soles, and then she wars a pair of socks before retiring for the night for relief.
One caution: When using Badass Balm, avoid contact with mucous membranes, and never apply this product to open wounds.

My son-in-law said this smells so much better than other products he has tried. And I have to add that this company is wonderful to work with.
I have many back problems. Have even had surgery and a rod was inserted in my spine. This Badass balm really helps with the pulled muscles I sometimes get. Recommend it very highly.
works great on joint pain
works great for joints and muscles,
This was awesome. I don't use anything, really for sore muscles, just tough it out. But this week is moving week, lots of cleaning, prepping the house, and moving boxes. 2 days in, I'm already so sore, I had to try something. I remembered some of this lovely balm had been a bonus gift in one of my orders. I gave it a try and it was heaven on my muscles! Made the aches go away, felt like a massage after I had applied. I will be using up this sample and then ordering more!! Thanks!
I use this on my knees to relieve inflammation and the on-set of arthritis. Works great! Soothing, smells good and eases my pain.
This product works great. I have a difficult time getting to sleep due to joint pain. When I use Badass Balm it relieves my pain naturally and I fall asleep without taking pain pills. What could be better!
I was skeptical when buying this product - thought what the heck I'll give it a try. So I used this product on my shoulder muscles and to my surprise it actually worked. It smells okay, goes on easy, but is a little messy.
