Directions: massage into affected joints. Reapply as needed. Note: this balm may seem somewhat difficult to get out of the jar. This is because extra beeswax has been added so that the balm will not be greasy or oily. Body heat will soften it quickly as it is is applied.
Ingredients: olive oil infused with comfrey, yarrow, and st. john’s wort herbs, beeswax, palmarosa essential oil, fir tree essential oil.
Comfrey: well-known for its ability to help and heal injuries of all kinds.
Yarrow: has anti-inflammatory properties that can help with inflammatory arthritis. It is also helps to bring blood and its healing nutrients to peripheral areas such as the hands.
St. John’s Wort: mostly know for it’s anti-depressant qualities, it surprisingly has very effective pain-relieving qualities as well.
Palmarosa Oil: this oil helps to relax muscles and nerves, which can help with arthritis pain.
Fir Tree Oil: another oil to help relax muscles and bring pain relief to nerves.
Note: there is some controversy over the herb Comfrey. Our family has grown it’s own comfrey plants for the last 12+ years and have never had one problem, internally or externally. Basically, in my understanding, you would have to consume about 3x your body weight every day for about a year and a half in order for comfrey to have a negative effect. Below is a link that is balanced and informative on the subject. Either way, please don’t let us talk you into anything; do your own research and/or speak to a doctor if you have doubts about comfrey.
