It's back! Our best-selling herbal muscle relief rub returns with a new name and an improved formula. The name change reflects the #farmtoskincare locally grown nature of the ingredients. 


Our farm-based formula includes a whole lot of herbal medicine! The bones of this balm are herbal oil infusions from locally sourced herbs, including those from our own farm.  


Ingredient Highlights:

  • Cayenne - we sourced our cayenne from HeartSong Farm. Farmer Emily grows some amazing peppers alongside her beautiful flowers.  Capsaicin, the chemical compound found in hot peppers that makes them hot (the more capsaicin, the hotter the pepper!), has traditionally been used to treat pain associated with arthritis, strained muscles, rheumatoid arthritis, and backache. Cayenne both blocks pain receptors and increases circulation.
  • Turmeric - our turmeric comes straight off the farm from Granite Springs Farm, right here in Chatham County. Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory, even for deep tissue pain, and helps heal skin tissue as well. 
  • Ginger - our ginger also comes from Granite Springs Farm, where farmer Meredith grows the best ginger you can find! Ginger reduces pain, increases circulation and works to fight inflammation. 
  • Arnica - Arnica is great for bruises, sprains, soreness, and swelling and for the relief of arthritis, muscle, and joint pain.
  • Hops - our hops are homegrown right on our farm! While best known for its role in beer brewing, hops is a fantastic nervous system tonic herb for relaxation, promoting sleep, relieving muscle spasms, and soothing inflammation. 
  • Goldenrod - our goldenrod was wildcrafted from our property. Goldenrod helps relax over-tightened, stressed out muscles with its powerful anti-inflammatory action. 
  • Our formula includes a potent synergy of essential oils known for their anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties. 


How to Use: 

We've packaged Haw River Heat in convenient to use deodorant-style tubes. This offers the advantage of applying the balm easily to large muscles and minimizing hand contact (see note below).  We do, however, still recommend massaging the balm well into the skin where muscle/joint pain is present. Apply as needed. 

NOTE: If using it for arthritic pain, it may take up to a week or two to see results. In this case you want to use it daily to decrease chronic pain.


CAUTION: May stain clothing. Always WASH HANDS after applying and avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes. DO NOT USE on broken skin. Even on closed skin you may feel a bit of burning or heat in the area where it is used. FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY.  DO NOT APPLY TO CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 10 **NOT TO BE USED DURING PREGNANCY OR DURING BREASTFEEDING***
