The science of art.

Undercarriages are pretty personal things, so what gives someone else a friendly tingle might feel like it's goosing you with a cattle prod. If other embrocations are little too zippy for your liking, but you still enjoy the smell of Texas White Cedar and rosemary oil and the gentle tingle of capsicum annum around your nuptials, try Mad Alchemy's Gentleman's Blend Warming Embrocation. Gentleman's Blend is Mad Alchemy's mellowest offering, so it won't overwhelm your skin or senses, but it still packs plenty of soothing and healing agents like grapeseed oil, shea butter, beeswax, and essential oils to keep your skin feeling like a million bucks.

  • Shea butter, beeswax, essential oils, grapeseed oil

Just Right

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

If you live at any altitude above 3,500 ft. and want something to warm (not heat or burn) your calves and thighs during a cold or very cool, spring or fall ride, this is the ticket. I take a wet cloth, rub my legs to get the skin moist, then I put some Mad Alchemy Embro in my hands and rub it into my leg muscles (top of ankle to just above knee). It'll kick in about the time it takes you to get warmed up on the bike, 15 mins or so, then it provides a warming sensation for about 45mins to 1.5 hrs. It does pick up dust, dirt, etc. but not too badly, just wash it off after riding, comes off easy with soap & water. Many other Embro creams, gels, etc. are way too hot, like rubbing "Heat" or cayenne/capsacian cream on your legs, they can burn for a a good 1-2 days. Not this one, it's just right

I want to eat my legs

Smells like rosemary. Tasty. This is a mild blend- I have used the medium embro from Mad Alchemy with delight, so I figured I would try something for a warmer temperature. This is great for those days when there may be a slight chill in the air, but on the way to warming up. Highly suggested. *It smells great, and you may want to eat your legs- but please do not ingest the embro.

Gentle mans blend

I just received my gentleman's blend. All I can say is that even in drug stores I do have a hard time finding a product that that warms me nicely. This is just another one of those for me. I guess I should have gone with a stronger product.

A mild embrocation

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This was the first embrocation I ever used. It took several rides for me to figure out the right amount to use - at first, I didn't use enough to feel any warming effect. But once I got it right, I liked it. There is no burning sensation and it has a pleasant aroma.

New to embro

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I've slathered various moisturizers, oils, and sunscreens on my legs before but never a real embrocation, particularly one with warming properties. I'm hooked. Love the look and feel. Only downside so far is how the embro holds road dirt, insects, etc. Perhaps not applying the product to my shins would solve this issue. Any thoughts?

The Right Amount of Heat

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Coming from FL originally I wasn't too familiar with the whole Embrocation thing. When I started to ride in the Utah spring weather I quickly found out that all warming balms are not created equal. After trying out something that felt like it was melting off my skin in order to warm the muscles beneath I discovered the Mad Alchemy products. The first time I used Gentlemen's Blend I knew that my search for the right Embrocation was over. It smells great, warms well, & doesn't feel like acid scalding my skin? what a great combo!

Warm up with the rainbow

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

No one likes Embro that feels like you've just put bacon grease on and asked the sun to fry your skin to a nice Gucci purse patina. Alchemy got it right with the gentleman's blend. Sure, I'm a gentlelady, but who doesn't enjoy the scent of Texas white cedar and Rosemary oil?
