Welcome To Minard’s

Relieving Pain Since 1860

Ease arthritic pain and muscle strain with MINARD’s, a unique topical formula containing Camphor, a natural pain reliever that has been used for thousands of years in Eastern and Western medicine to ease muscle aches, swelling, sprains, and bruises.

Quick Pain Relief

MINARD’s penetrates deeply and quickly into the skin, acting as a mild local anesthetic while stimulating circulation to increase blood flow through the muscles and speed up the healing process.

Time-Honoured Ingredients

The main active ingredient, Camphor is a powerful natural pain reliever found in the wood of camphor laurel, an evergreen tree. It has been used for thousands of years to ease aches and pains associated with arthritis and sore muscles.

Fast-Dissipating Odour

The MINARD’s formula is a lotion with what some may consider a potent and penetrating smell. This odour dissipates quickly after application and does not linger on the skin or in the air after use.

A Long History of Care

Over 160 years ago in the 1860s, Dr. Levi Minard of Hants County, Nova Scotia, treated his patients with his own special liniment for easing stiff and sore muscles, arthritic pain, and back aches. Dr. Minard’s formula quickly became popular throughout Maritime provinces and Newfoundland, where fishermen used it to ease aches from the ocean’s damp and bone-chilling cold. It quickly spread to the west, ultimately gaining Dr. Minard the nickname “King of Pain Relief” throughout Canada. MINARD’s continues his legacy, with a winning formula that helps thousands relieve muscle pain to this day.

Stop Pain in Its Tracks

Muscle and arthritic pain are very common, but it doesn’t have to take over your life. Don’t wait until it’s so sharp you can’t ignore it; treat your muscles and joints as soon as any aching or soreness occurs. Apply MINARD’s to painful areas to ease the pain, and rest to give your muscles and joints time to recover.

Stay Active and Healthy with MINARD’s

Muscle pain and strain is common after strained activity and sports, and for many people, it prevents them from continuing to be active. MINARD’s helps ease pain and encourages blood flow through the muscles for faster healing so that you can quickly get back on track to a healthy lifestyle.

Treat Your Back Pain with MINARD’s

The most common cause of back pain is muscle strain, often felt in the shoulders or lower back. A combination of rest, gentle stretches, and massaging MINARD’s into the painful area can help reduce pain and speed up the healing process.
