The story of Nature’s Balm - The Rub

The Rub is an old herbal remedy that was in Dorrie Killeen’s grandmother’s family for generations.

In 1890 young teacher Annie Murray, from Rathmoylan in Co Meath, took up a post in a South Roscommon school. She brought with her a recipe for a substance made from herbs, oils, and salts that had been used by her family for generations for pains, aches, and inflammation.

Dorrie’s grandmother used to say ‘For every illness a herb grows nearby’. Twenty years ago Dorrie found the recipe, and The Rub was reborn. Here are some testimonials from users of The Rub:

“I’m having a new lease of life thanks to your wonder bottle - The Rub. My back is almost perfect and the sciatica is almost completely gone from my back and leg” - Paddy, Newcastlewest

“I will be 86 years old next month, I was just able to walk using a stick. Now I get around easily with no stick... I walk up three flights of stairs thanks to your Rub” - Patricia, Galway

The Rub is available from McGorisks, Honey Pot, Cooneys, Cunninghams, and Concannons pharmacies in Athlone; Brodericks and Hollys Pharmacies, Ballinasloe; Whelehans Pharmacy and Nuts & Grains in Mullingar; McManus Pharmacy, Clara; and O’Briens Pharmacy, Roscommon.
