Product No. 1849: In honor of the California Gold Rush.



We designed Work Horse to provide real relief to hard-working muscles. Its unique formula is very simple: It contains beneficial oils that warm, soothe and move the blood… and bentonite clay from finely-textured, weathered volcanic ash. That clay is what makes Work Horse different from other sore muscle rubs, balms or creams, which may provide immediate warming (or cooling) and then quickly dissipate. The bentonite clay in Work Horse Muscle Balm absorbs and actually holds the beneficial herbs and oils, so they don’t rub away or dissipate quickly; they actually have time to work hard for you. Here’s the duty each of them is called upon to do:

Calendula is for aiding healing of skin inflammation and/or dry, cracking skin.
Arnica has a long history of use to aid circulation and help with pain and swelling.
Ginger is great for warming, supporting circulation and soothing pain.
Capsaicin (Chili Pepper Extract): ditto.
Black pepper: ditto, too.
Rosemary supports circulation.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Rub Work Horse Muscle Balm into your skin before or after hard work. Smells great (thanks to the Ginger), and works hard for you. But be advised that Chili Pepper Extract is some hot stuff! Be careful not to touch your eyes, lips or other tender parts!

Great literally the best!

Johnny Frost on 1st Jun 2019

I use a ton of rubs salves lotions and elixir. This is by far the best why: super lasting for massages. Just great smell function and lasting

Love this for aches and pains...on feet or anywhere except the face!

I am a Reflexologist (Treat the Feet!) I have clients that love this... we love it at home too, we are part time farmers, and of course get bruises and muscle aches from time to time! The only negative I have experienced, is if you forget to wash your hands after using it and touch your eye...ouch, it does have pepper in it! So I warn people about that, and not to leave it where children would touch it...

This is just good medicine!

As a Chiropractor in Central Oregon, I see a multitude of muscle, joint, and nerve injuries stemming from over-doing it on the farm to nasty mountain bike accidents and everything in between. My patients always have great feedback about the Work Horse balm- "it doesn't make me smell like grandpa", "tight knots melt away", "This stuff made my arthritic hands young again". It is now the only product I use for manual therapies! Thank you Fieldworks Supply!
