Once upon a time, the answer to aches and pains most often came in the form of a small bottle obtained over-the-counter at the local drugstore (as in: Advil). These days, however, wellness-minded gals are more likely to try natural remedies such as healing baths, dry brushing, and even essential oils on their road to recovery than they are to rely on the quick fix of a painkiller.

Clean beauty companies are taking notice of this trend and are, as a result, are concocting topical products designed specifically to reduce muscle and joint discomfort.
