Big Dipper Wax Works Muscle Rub

Postworkout soreness and stiffness can hang around for days after a tough session and leave you wondering if all that work was really worth it.

If delayed-onset muscle soreness has you reaching for an over-the-counter pain reliever, you may be surprised by the power of a little externally applied heat to ease things up. This warming, beeswax-based muscle rub from Big Dipper combines camphor, menthol, eucalyptus, clove and peppermint to stimulate circulation and relieve muscle and joint soreness — a great alternative to the liver and kidney health risks of acetaminophen and other conventional medications. Made by a small California outfit dedicated to sustainable bee-raising practices. About $5; visit to order or find a supplier near you.
