Muscle, bone and joint salve

One of the best things about being a herbalist is that I can make my own salves, balms and ointments.  One of our best-sellers is the marvellously named ‘Duck Poo’ – it does really look rather greenish in the jar!  Its magic lies in the Arnica (for bruising), Symphytum (for healing tissue: it contains allantoin, which the body produces itself to aid tissue repair), and Gaultheria or Wintergreen, a very rich source of anti-inflammatory salicylic acid, similar to the acetyl salicylic acid in aspirin.  The fragrance is divinely medicinal.  Am rubbing this on my own sore back, helping to relieve muscle tension, and it works well on all muscle, bone and joint conditions, for soothing pain relief and healing.  Get in touch with me at Herbalist Scotland if you would like some yourself .  We still have a few jars left of this batch.

  1. Hi Anne
    Have often admired this concoction of yours. Would you keep a jar for me & I will buy from you next week when I get back to Edinburgh?
    With love,
    Karoline
