Herbal Liniment is a liquid formula promoted for being effective in soothing sprains, muscular pains, and bruises. The company that produces this formula is Mountain Rose Herbs.
Mountain Rose Herbs focuses on the distribution of herbal formulations that have been developed by itself or by other producers. It also sells herbs and spices on a wholesale basis for other manufacturers, for people interested in making their own herbal preparations and for herbal medicine students. Mountain Rose Herbs is a company that supports sustainable agriculture and thus sells mostly products made from organic herbs or plants that have been wildly harvested.
Mountain Rose Herbs claims that the Herbal Liniment formulation is potent, convenient, and based on organic herbs. In addition, this is a fast acting product which is able to provide instant pain relief and improve blood circulation at the same time. Besides the ingredients with anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and skin regeneration properties, the formulation contains menthol crystals which provide a particular soothing sensation when used on the hot inflamed areas of your skin. Mountain Rose Herbs recommends Herbal Liniment to outdoorsy people, those who enjoy gardening for instance, but also to athletes as well as hikers as they often need a remedy for sore muscles.
Herbal Liniment Ingredients
Herbal Liniment includes the following ingredients: Comfrey root, Calendula flowers, Echinacea Purpurea root, Menthol Crystals, Cayenne, and Isopropyl alcohol.
Herbal Liniment is obtained by Mountain Rose Herbs by using several plants with skin regenerating properties like comfrey. Comfrey contains chemical compounds like tannins, rosmarinic acid and allantoin which are known to be effective in healing skin tissue. Moreover it acts as an anti-inflammatory. These properties explain why comfrey has been used in folk medicine for bruises and minor injuries. Specialists recommend not using comfrey on an open wound or for long periods of time (longer than ten days) because it contains some toxins which would affect the liver. You should also know that the Food and Drug Administration does not allow oral comfrey based products on the US market, for the same reason.
The Herbal Liniment formulation is also promoted for muscle pains. We believe this ailment claim is backed up by the properties of cayenne, which is usually recommended for pain after surgeries, pain from nerve damage, arthritis and lower back pain. You may be allergic to this herb if you happen to have an allergy to latex, avocado, chestnuts, bananas and kiwi.
Herbal Liniment is sold in bottles of two ounces. The quality and safety of the formulation have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. The manufacturer does not recommend any side effects either on the Mountain Rose official site.
- The average price per ounce of $4.75 recommends it as an affordable formula
- It is based on ingredients which have been used for centuries in traditional medicine
- The producer offers a 60-day satisfaction guarantee
- It has very few online customer satisfaction testimonials
- Shipping charges may be high (more than $6) if you order from the producer
- Not many online retailers sell the formula
Herbal Liniment is an herbal formula for skin abrasions and sore muscles. We like the fact that it contains cayenne, which is very potent in relieving pain symptoms, and that it contains ingredients like calendula and comfrey which have skin regeneration properties. All the above should recommend it as an effective formula. However, the product does not benefit from many online consumer reviews and as a result we cannot say whether clients have been satisfied. Anyhow, from this perspective at least, Herbal Liniment does not seem to have an established reputation among customers. In our opinion, it may be worth a try since it also comes at an affordable price.
