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.
