The herbs used in this preparation are known for their pain relieving, anti-inflammatory and anti-rehumatic actions.

*I think of this as my natural first aid salve. This balm is created with many herbs known as Vulneraries. Vulneraries can help to soothe and heal cuts, scrapes, scratches, bug bites, dry skin conditions and sunburns. The oil has been infused with a variety of very healing and medicinal herbs known to reduce inflammation, decrease itch, staunch bleeding, decrease inflammation and act as antimicrobials to help heal the skin faster while still disinfecting.
This salve comes everywhere with me.
**The moments when I would not use this Healing Herbal salve is with sunburns that are still very HOT on the skin or with deep wounds.
Ingredients: Organic olive oil, beeswax, unrefined shea butter, vitamin E oil, raw honey, marigold (Calendula officinalis), plantain (Plantago major), comfrey (Symphytum officinale), yarrow, (Achillea millefolium) st.johns wort (Hypericum perforatum) and essential oils of tea tree, lavender & thyme.
*The oil in this preparation is infused with organic arnica flowers, well known for their anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties. Arnica is used for bruises, sprains, strains and any type of inflammation. The double action for the muscles in this blend is the added benefit of the menthol, camphor and other essential oils that bring a very cooling sensation to the skin and help ease inflammation.
Another use for Cool Muscles is for headaches, tense shoulders & neck, or even respiratory conditions. This can be rubbed on the chest to bring relief to congestion of the airways, and bring a cooling action to the head when there is too much heat moving up the body.
Ingredients: Organic olive oil, beeswax, unrefined shea butter, vitamin E oil, arnica (Arnica montana) menthol crystals, essential oils of camphor, wintergreen, peppermint, rosemary & eucalyptus.
* This balm was created for all of the beautiful pregnant and new moms in my life. The combination of these herbs works to cool the skin, decrease inflammation and gently act as anti-micorbials to disinfect. This salve was made with safe, yet effective herbs and ingredients.
Use this balm for sore or inflamed nipples, baby rashes, stretch marks, dry skin, cuts & scrapes and basically anything mom & baby related.
