Wahiŋkpe's Pain Salve


Wahiŋkpe (wah – hiŋk – pay) means “arrow” in the Lakota language.

Use: For supporting relief from nerve pain, muscle spasms, and restless leg syndrome. For external use only.

Application: apply small amount on affected area. Wait 30-60 minutes and add another thin layer if necessary.  

Note from Megan: This salve is two years in the making. I began developing this salve when my daughter Arrow (Wahiŋkpe) developed a sudden severe pain in her legs. Since then, it has moved into her left arm as well. After extensive testing, doctors found she has a rare genetic nerve pain disorder, which has no noticeable triggers other than cold temperatures. So, I developed this salve using medicinal plants that have been used for generations by Indigenous peoples, to help Arrow without having to rely solely on pharmaceutical medications.

Salves should be kept in a cool, dry area.  Do not let salves freeze or melt as this will cause the consistency to be off. The product should still work as intended if this happens, but the consistency will make it more difficult to apply.

Pain relief

This salve has really helped relieve my back and hips pain. Just a small amount really works. I will be ordering again.

Amazing Results

I do a lot of running and horseback riding. Sore muscles and an occasional pinched nerve come with the territory. Have tried a bunch of different products over the years but they all just seemed to provide temporary relief. Awhile back I tried a small jar of Wahinkpe’s Pain Save and found it to be incredibly effective. The pain and soreness were gone within a day. I now keep a supply on hand for regular use.

I’m loving this!

I started using right away and it’s made quite a difference!


I love it. I deal with chronic pain, but I have really wild reactions to many medications, topical & otherwise. This is kind to my body. I want to try everything they make.
