The Story

When I was a child I remember walking by the rivers in Northern Michigan in the spring time and smelling this amazing sweet smell.

I found out later this smell was from the balsam popular tree. And the tree buds, bark and roots all had amazing pain relief properties!

The medicine was made by my ancestors the Anishinabek (Ojibwe, Chippewa) who were skilled at making legendary medicines that really helped people with their pains.   The pain relief occurs within 10 minutes after applying and can last for several hours (5-10 times longer than arnica)!

Based on a traditional Native American topical pain relief salve from the Great Lakes Area. Minagin (Min-again) means, to rub on in Ojibwe.

Minagin uses 100% all natural wild harvested or organic ingredients. This is a time tested medicine with at least 1,000 years of history.


• Fibromyalgia
• Neck and Joint Pain
• Nerve Damage
• Arthritis
• Headaches
• And More.


I call it the sweet smell of spring because the sweet smell reminds me of the sweet smell found by lakes and rivers in the spring time coming from the budding trees in Northern Michigan! 

No one wants the strong smells of other non natural pain relievers like Icy hot or Ben-gay.  

With Minagin you do not even smell it after it has been applied.

Sizes Available

1 oz, 2 oz and 4 oz tins. The best and oldest natural pain relief herbal treatment in the Americas!

How To Use

Apply daily 3-5 times or as needed generously.  Rub in 20-30 seconds. For sore joints rub around entire joint. Let it soak in (5 min.) before wearing clothes.  For more specific conditions refer to the back of the tin.

All of our products are concentrated, have no medicated smell (non menthol), include a best by date and are long lasting after applying (longer lasting that arnica).

If you are sensitive to aspirin, you should not use Minagin. Concentrated for external use only.

Our Pain Relief Ointment is Made From Natural Ingredients

We have our wise ancestors to thank for our all-natural Indian salve. Balsam poplar buds are rich in muscle pain-relieving compounds, offering one of the most effective natural analgesics in traditional medicine. And, in honor of our cherished ancestors, honoring the land is integral to our sourcing and production practices.

To create our soothing pain relief cream, we carefully pluck the buds from poplars in Northern Michigan. This meticulous process requires extensive traditional herbal knowledge and absolute care for the trees we harvest from. We are intentional about the sustainability of the herbs or bark we harvest, ensuring that we never damage the trees or ecosystems that enable our sustainable production processes. In many areas, our work has rejuvenated the ecosystem. By walking on the roots, pruning small trees, and other harvesting efforts, we have caused the areas we harvest from to regenerate themselves.

For other included ingredients such as beeswax, we do our best to source all organic ingredients from local partners who share in our sustainable vision. When you choose Herbal Lodge to support your muscle pain relief, you don’t just receive the best natural products; you receive products that are eco-friendly, always pure, and trusted by thousands of our customers around the world.

Balsam Poplar (Latin: Populus balsamifera, Ojibwe: Maanazaadi) Constituents: Chrysin, terochrysin, salicin, populin and resin.

This is NOT the same ingredient as Balm-of-Gilead. Balsam Popular is far more superior in pain relief than Balm Of Gilead! And it is only sourced by wild harvesting because it is difficult to harvest in the winter.

St. Johns Wort has also been used topically in the treatment of nerve and muscle pain, skin inflammation, skin wounds, and burns.

Beeswax is used for lowering cholesterol and for relieving pain. It is also used for swelling (inflammation). Bees are not chemically treated. 100% pure beeswax.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil We use extra virgin olive oil because it is has smaller molecules and helps our salve penetrate your skin. Extra virgin olive oil, the least processed form of olive oil, has additional antioxidant properties that have a protective effect against heart disease. ... Olive oil contains oleic acid and other phenols that have antioxidant benefits in the body.

Castor Oil is antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal, or that it has been used topically to treat a variety of skin conditions, reduce pain, and stimulate your immune system

The Minagin is amazing!
"Beautiful salves harvested from Nature in a sustainable, respectful way. I get instant, long lasting pain relief from the Minagin salve like nothing I have ever tried. It smells wonderful, too. I can not recommend it enough. Thank you for offering these wonderful salves." - Jeannette Johns

There is nothing better for sciatic pain. Nothing
"I started using Minagin when my sciatic nerve started to act up. I tried just about everything over the counter for it and nothing worked. Frustrated and in major pain, I forgot that I had Minagin in my cabinet. Put it on the nerve, and I'm not kidding, 20 minutes later the pain started to subside. 30 minutes later the pain was gone. I'm going on 3 months with this sciatic problem. I don't know what I would do without Minagin. There is nothing better for sciatic pain. Nothing!" - Deidre M Gray

It was amazing.
"When I put it on my very sore neck, I could just hear and feel the bone and muscles crackling and relaxing. It was amazing. I will be using it also on my arthritic hips. Thank you for this great product." - Betty Navoy

I recommend this to anyone with any type of a pain.
"As a result of a response to a prayer request for my Mother I ordered Herbal Lodge Minagin for her severe pain from arthritis and bursitis. This salve is a godsend! I recommend this to anyone with any type of a pain. A little of it goes along way. Before I gave it to Mom I tried it on the pain in my shoulder, I felt immediate relief and the relief lasted for about 6 hours or longer. Needless to say I have ordered more. May always God bless Herbal Lodge." - Brenda Akin-Smith
