Deep Heat Organic Embrocation

Invigorating Protection
Hands Free Applicator - 10 ml / 0.35 oz

Most embrocations come in a jar, and latex gloves should be worn during application. If you didn't use gloves, it would be very easy to transfer the hot stuff to your nether region or face... thats no good. Our unique package lets you apply the product without touching it, but if you still want to massage it in, take precautions and go for it!

About Embrocations

Embrocations, like chocolate, have historic roots in Belgium / Europe, and are very popular there, especially for cycle-cross racing.

For cyclists who ride in the winter, embrocating is an important process of warming the muscles before a ride in the cold. Embrocations can be found in many ways, shapes, and forms.

Some versions are designed as a weather proof barrier to keep water and cold away from the skin. These can be massaged into the muscles to help promote blood flow and get the muscles warmed up.

In extreme conditions some embrocations contain warming agents such as Cayenne, Black Pepper, or Capsaicin. These agents also promote blood flow to the skin and muscles and create a warming sensation when applied.

Embrocations are most commonly used on the legs, but can also be used on the arms, feet, hands, and even lower back and chest. Sometimes the application of embrocation can be just as much of a mental advantage as a physical one, but on a cold morning there is nothing better than that nice warm feeling.

JTree Citrus Full Heat Embrocation combines essential oils from grapefruit and capsaicin for a hot sensation. Capsaicin provides the heat and grapefruit essential oil offers a refreshing, slightly energizing sensation.

About Brian

Professional mountain bike and cyclocross rider Brian Matter was a member of team USA at the 2009 World Cyclocross Championships and two-time member of the 24-Hour National Champion Team. Brian has been the driving force behind our line of embrocations, and had a lot of fun with the development and testing of the products:

"Have you ever put tabasco on a grapefruit? That’s what gets me going on race days!”

About Kelly

JTree Spiced Mid Heat Embrocation uses essentials oils from cloves and capsaicin to produce a mild heating sensation. Clove essential oils increase heat in the body, while capsaicin, the active component of chili peppers, warms when applied to skin.

Professional cyclist Kelli Emmett is a four-time member of the U.S. Mountain Bike World Championship Team and a national and two-time world champion. While testing out the prototype scents, she concluded:

"I“I love coffee!!!

....but Spicy is what I want people to think of me as... Ha!”

JTree Eucalyptus No Heat Embrocation uses peppermint and eucalyptus essential oils to create an invigorating protective balm on the skin. The thick water proof barrier is great for shedding mud and snow during inclement weather rides. Peppermint relieves skin irritation and itchiness and also helps to reduce skin redness where inflammation is present while at the same time having a cooling action.

About Adam

Adam is a 13 time US National Champion in various bike events, and 2008 US Olympic MTB Team Member. While developing this embrocation, he commented:

"I'd like it not too hot, or hot at all, but more of a thick waterproofing/insualting product. And shiny. But not too hot, I kind of hate hot embrocations. And may or may not have given a 10 minute (quite intoxicated) monologue to the editor of embrocation cycling journal about how his publication has spread so much topical pain and suffering around the world... he got me back at Starcrossed the other week though, as the announcer..."

Warnings

Each person has different skin sensitivity and each embrocation has different levels of heat so be sure to test your product thoroughly and conservatively to start.

Most importantly keep away from eyes and genitalia!
