Ingredients of The Arm Bar
Tea Tree oil is often referred to as “liquid gold” in the holistic healing community. It’s anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties are unmatched by any other natural healing product. It has been proven to disinfect and prevent such skin ailments as ringworm, acne, athletes foot, dandruff, and most importantly, the dreaded Staphylococcus Aureus, or Staph infection. It’s almost as if this oil was specifically put on this earth to protect and heal the combat athlete. Hmmm…
Eucalyptus Oil was added to The Arm Bar as a reinforcement to Tea Tree Oil. With many antiseptic properties, It has also been proven to promote quick healing in infected wounds as well as reduce any skin inflammations such as “mat burn” that combat athletes are very familiar with. With its pleasant earthy aroma, Eucalyptus oil also behaves as an all-natural deodorant.
Lemongrass Oil helps give The Arm Bar it’s light citrusy scent. It has been used for centuries as an all-natural antibacterial, anti-microbial, and antiseptic preventative for the growth of disease-causing microorganisms. When applied to the skin, it has also been proven to aid in muscle strains which is common with combat athletes.
Bergamot Oil is derived from a tropical, citrus fruit and combines very nicely with the Lemon Grass oil to give The Arm Bar it’s unique scent. It also has many antibiotic properties that help to cease the growth of viruses and funguses affecting the skin. In addition, along with its ability to eliminate body odor, this oil also aids in protecting wounds from infection and speeding up the healing process of existing ones.
Peppermint Oil is the ingredient within The Arm Bar that begins the entire treatment process. It’s menthol properties get the skin to “breathe” after a long training session. This allows all of the other healing oils to flow freely into the pores and start doing work on whatever nasty organisms you picked up during your sweaty training session.
Steel-cut Oats are grinded into crumbs and evenly distributed throughout each bar to aid in exfoliating dead skin.

Kona Coffee Grounds – sourced from the west side of the island of Hawai’i aka The Big Island, these grounds were tossed into our “Hawaiian Batch” to behave as an exfoliant and polish out dead skin.
