Arnica + Peppermint Sports Balm: Relieving Your Muscles' Aches and Pains!

Picture this: You stand atop a challenging mountain peak after hours of trekking. Your legs are achy and tired. It's a testament to your strength and determination. But as you bask in the glory of your achievement, you're reminded that you now have to walk back down.

That's where the Arnica + Peppermint Sports Balm comes into play, emerging as your secret weapon against tense and fatigued muscles. This natural balm combines the soothing properties of arnica and the invigorating coolness of peppermint to create a potent remedy for your post-adventure muscle soreness.

Arnica, a botanical known for its remarkable healing properties, has been used for centuries to reduce muscle tension, aches, and swelling. By infusing arnica into this sports balm, we harness the power of nature to help your muscles recover and find relief. The cooling essence of peppermint provides an immediate sensation of freshness, easing away any lingering discomfort and revitalising your body.

This natural balm also features Wintergreen, another botanical with analgesic properties that can alleviate muscle and joint pain. With a gentle warming sensation, it increases circulation, bringing much-needed nourishment to fatigued muscles and promoting their recovery.

So, bid farewell to post-adventure muscle soreness and welcome the well-deserved relaxation that your body craves.

Bug-Free Bliss with the Eco-Friendly All-Natural Bug Spray

While nature's wonders are undoubtedly awe-inspiring, its tiny inhabitants can sometimes dampen the mood and leave you swatting away in frustration. Don't let those pesky insects spoil your backcountry adventures any longer. With our all-natural bug spray, you can reclaim your peace of mind and bid farewell to those buzzing nuisances.

Gone are the days of relying on chemical-laden alternatives that not only harm the environment but also leave you feeling uneasy about the products you're using. Packaged in an eco-friendly aluminum bottle, it not only delivers effective bug-repelling power but also aligns with your commitment to sustainability and environmental consciousness.

Citronella, a time-tested ingredient, has long been known for its ability to repel mosquitoes and other pesky creatures. And eucalyptus lemon adds a delightful touch of freshness, uplifting your spirits as you explore the great outdoors.

Relish in the bliss of the backcountry without compromising your well-being or the environment. Embrace the wonders of the natural world and embark on your adventures with confidence, knowing that you are using a bug spray that not only works effectively but also honours the harmony between humans and nature.

Zinc Lip Balm: Your Lips' Best Friend

Your lips deserve some well-deserved attention too. Exposed to the elements such as sun, wind, and harsh conditions, we often forget to give our lips protection. We have the perfect solution to keep your lips hydrated, protected, and ready for action: our natural lip balm fortified with zinc.

With the addition of non-nano zinc, this lip balm provides an extra layer of protection against the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays. Zinc, an all-natural mineral ingredient, creates a sun-blocking barrier on your skin, shielding you from both long-ray UVA and UVB radiation.

Applying this lip balm is as easy as a simple twist of the stick. Packaged for convenience, it fits snugly in your pocket or backpack, ready to be deployed whenever your lips need a touch of care. Whether you're hiking, biking, skiing, surfing, kayaking, or engaging in any outdoor activity you love, this lip balm is your trusty companion.

The addition of zinc may result in a slight white appearance when applied. However, this serves as a visual confirmation that the protective barrier is in place, assuring you that your lips are shielded from the sun's harmful rays. Our Zinc Lip Balm can be applied to your nose and cheeks for extra protection too!

Ensure your lips are given the attention they deserve, and let them shine as you immerse yourself in the wonders of nature.
