This stuff is AMAZING!

During a stop in Sitka in June, I bought a gift box for my daughter, which included a container of this. The past two weeks I have been dealing with a pinched and sore neck that nothing helped with, not even CBD lotion. I tried this today and my neck feels better than it has in two weeks! It works better than tiger balm (and smells better) and CBD lotion. I need to buy two more containers so that my husband and I can each have one to keep with our work stuff while keeping the other one at home.

20+ years later, still does the trick

Pain in my ankle awoke me and in my slumber I reached in my bedside drawer and extracted the Devils Club Salve I purchased in 1998 when in Sitka. It immediately absolved the pain and the pain has not returned. This prompted me to find the store's website to order some fresh product. Many thanks!

Winter go-to

I use this at night in the winter on my hands and it helps keep my skin from cracking. A small container goes a long way.

Works Wonders

I first purchased a small tin of the Devil's Club Salve, for $30 at a local Trades Day Flea Market. It worked so well, I went on line to see if I could find it for less and found your site. I have since ordered 3 tinsto share with family and friends. My husband and I both have back issues and using this has made all the difference in the world. I also use it on insect bites, cuts and bruises. The best product ever!

This really works!

On our cruise stop (8/29), we toured Sitka National Historical Park. Our Tlingit guide showed us a Devils Club plant and explained how the Natives used it to treat arthritis (among other things). Then, while on a walking tour of Sitka, WinterSong had a display and sample out front, so I tried it. It worked within minutes! I was using a prescription with a $20 co-pay that I didn't think was doing any good, so needless to say, I purchased a tin. So far, I love it! I'm recommending it to my friends here at home. Next time I see my Dr., I'll tell her, too.
