For many years the family have been producing this mysterious and magical concoction at home. Locals have been purchasing the amazing muscle oil for more than 150 years and always believed emphatically in its healing power. People used to call wanting to buy the miraculous oil for all kinds of ailments - relief from rheumatic pain, muscular and joint pain as well as injured ligaments.

However, the ingredients and recipe along the method of production remains a closely guarded family secret.

Kelvin Evans, the current producer of the oil and a descendent of the original Bonesetters, remembers his Grandfather - John Evans, and Father - Gwyn Evans, mixing this elixir using the same clay pot and stick. With the passage of time and as transport improved, Gwyn Evans started supplying local shops with the oil.

Amongst the first shops he supplied where Pike’s Newsagent in Porthmadog and a local Butchers at Criccieth. Ironically, Gwyn Evans even produced a batch of healing oil - for the benefit of others - on his dying day in June 1989! It was at this point that his son Kelvin Evans took over the production of Olew Gewynnau (Muscle Oil).
