Where does Arnica come from?
Arnica was first used in European folk medicine by shepherds. These hardworking men and women spent their days in the wilderness completely relying on their bodies. Similar to modern day athletes, these shepherds were working their bodies at their peak every single day.
At one point in time they discovered that by extracting the oil from common Mountain Daisies around them, they can easily treat soreness, bruising, sprains, and pains. These common Mountain Daisies are known as Arnica.
How does Arnica work?
Arnica contains a compound called helenalin that naturally inhibits the transcription of NF-kappa-beta, a protein that normally causes a cascade of inflammation.
Less inflammation = less pain.
How do we use Muscle Butter?

Is Muscle Butter edible?
