Our review of Rishi Rub, Live Rishi’s mindfully crafted salve for soothing aches and pains naturally with CBD, arnica and essential organic oils.
Disclosure: I received a complimentary jar of this product in exchange for my review. Please note that I won’t post reviews for inferior products even when I get free products.
Got sore joints? Achy muscles? Little pains everywhere? I feel ya. My wrists have decades of keyboard-pounding wear and tear. I’ve got chronic heel pain. And I’m just a general mess (pandemics and such). Seems crazy that a little jar of anything could make a dent in the high anxiety that hangs in the air like a virus right now. (Eww, I said that didn’t I?! Sorry.) But it did. Rishi Rub 250 mg CBD with Arnica was created with one goal in mind — to help you feel your best using all-natural and organic ingredients with holistic methods to relax, relieve, and rejuvenate the mind, body, and spirit. My kind of stuff.
Let me tell ya about Rishi Rub…
First thing that hits you about this soothing salve is the scent. With hints of cinnamon, mint and eucalyptus, the aroma is calming yet energizing. Once you apply to skin, it gives off an earthy sweet scent that subtly subsides as it absorbs. I wish you could smell this…
Mmm. And while these fragrant oils have a unique purpose in this rub, it’s the ones you don’t necessarily smell that make it work. Here’s the full list of ingredients:
- CBD Hemp Extracts
- Lavender Oil
- Jojoba Oil
- Clove Bud Oil
- Peppermint Oil
- Shea Butter
- Frankincense Oil
- Cinnamon Bark
- German Chamomile
- Eucalyptus Globulus
- Arnica Montana
While the high quality essential oils work to enhance the aromatic and therapeutic benefits of Rishi Rub, its key players are the hemp and arnica. The pure hemp extracts contain at least 250 or 500 mg of Cannabidiol (CBD) per jar (depending on which version you choose) along with the other vital cannabinoids found in the hemp plant, including Cannabigerol (CBG) and Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA) to help fight inflammation. The hemp is paired with arnica, a yellow flower grown in high-altitude meadows long used for its natural anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. Together, these ingredients help alleviate pain and inflammation on a topical level.
Of course, the beeswax, shea butter and jojoba oil are deeply hydrating so the rub is also great for dry, itchy spots, which is a real issue for us desert dwellers.
Why we love Rish Rub…
Which brings me to another reason I love this stuff — it’s made right here in Arizona. The Live Rishi facility is located in Tempe, AZ where they formulate and produce all products fresh from scratch, including their CBD tinctures and CBD-enhanced Rishi Aftershave Balm. The story of how it all came together is quite moving (you can read about it here).
And here’s the real rub. It works. I’ve been massaging my wrists with Rishi Rub daily and that constant achy feeling has diminished significantly. When I remember to, I massage it into my heels at night and it not only soothes my pain but it softens my skin. I’ve even taken to rubbing the salve on my forehead for tension headaches.
Heck, even the packaging is as uplifting and thoughtful as the product itself.
