Mend Blend by Skin & Tonic large pot £30/small pot £15

Everyone knows the feeling of tired and aching muscles after strenuous exercise or a vigorous yoga class. This can occur when starting a new exercise programme or when increasing the duration and intensity of a regular workout. To support the muscles in their recovery and lighten the associated discomfort, we created a sensational muscle balm called Mend Blend with our favourite organic London skincare brand Skin & Tonic. Exclusively sold in our triyoga shops, the Mend Blend contains organic ingredients to provide not only a tingling sensation, but also to increase blood circulation for a speedy recovery.
