Traditionally effective


The beneficial effect of marmot oil as in old home recipes has been prized for centuries, above all in the alpine region. It has been used since time immemorial to treat tense and sore muscles, lumbago and joint pain, for example after sporting activities. It in particular provides relief to joints and the musculoskeletal system.

The active substances the pure marmot oil contains include various fatty acids such as palmitic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid, linolenic acid, vitamin E and (natural) corticosteroids. Applied after doing sports, hiking and other physical exertion, it promotes rapid regeneration of the musculoskeletal system. Countless masseurs and therapist use marmot oil in their day-to-day work. And what many people don’t know is that pure marmot oil can even be ingested, as it has beneficial effect on the stomach and lungs.

Marmots are hunted in late summer (August/September) before they go into hibernation because their numbers are at their greatest at that time of year. Some 7,500 animals are shot each year in Austria, though only a very small proportion is painstakingly processed to produce the valuable marmot oil. At any rate, the animals are not hunted for the purpose of producing salves – and using marmot oil is thus a sensible way to utilise the hunted animals.
